DOCTOR WHO - DOCTOR WHO: THE MASSACRE[RSD 2020]
As usual, one copy per person, only. For fairness sake, we have to prohibit multiple buys of the same release.
180G PARISIAN BLAZE VINYL
"At dawn tomorrow this city will weep tears of blood."
For Record Store Day 2020, Demon Records presents a narrated full-cast
TV soundtrack of a legendary historical adventure, starring William
Hartnell as the original Doctor.
In this lost 4-part serial, first shown on BBC TV in February 1966, the TARDIS
materialises in Paris in 1572, a time of great danger and religious strife. The
Catholic Queen Mother, Catherine de Medici, is hatching a plot to kill all French
Protestants, and the Doctor and Steven are quickly caught up in events. While
Steven is befriended by a group of Protestants, the Doctor has a perfect double
in the shape of the hated dignitary, the Abbot of Amboise. One of them is about
to lose his life!
Presented across 2 x heavyweight 180g pieces of vinyl, in a striking Parisian
Blaze splatter, this narrated TV soundtrack evokes a classic Doctor Who
adventure in all its aural magnificence. The vivid sounds of 16th Century Paris in
turmoil, and the encroaching terror of the massacre, are all accompanied by the
eerie sonics of Ron Grainer & Delia Derbyshires theme tune.
Written by John Lucarotti, this dramatic story now survives only as a sound
recording. Linking narration is provided by Peter Purves (Steven) and the cast
includes Eric Thompson as Gaston, André Morell as Tavannes, Leonard Sachs as
de Coligny and Annette Robinson as Anne.
The coloured vinyl LPs are presented in a gatefold sleeve with illustrated inner
bags and full episode billings, cast and credits.
