Doctor Who Zygon Hunt on vinyl

19 October 2018

Sainsbury's has now released Doctor Who: Zygon Hunt starring Tom Baker and Louise Jameson on vinyl – UK listeners be quick to find your copy before they sell out! You can also pick up Zygon Hunt on CD or download from Big Finish.

The Zygons returned to take on Tom Baker as the Fourth Doctor in this Doctor Who full-cast audio drama released in 2014. Listeners may know that the Doctor had previously encountered the Zygons (and a Skarasen) on Tulloch Moor, Scotland in the 1975 television story, Terror of the Zygons.

On the jungle planet Garros, Earth Forces Knight Commander-in-Chief Greg Saraton and his team are hunting gigantic beasts, for sport. When the Doctor and Leela arrive, they are caught up in a web of intrigue where there is no clear friend or foe.

What is Saraton’s vital connection with Earth’s Solar System’s Defence Shield? Why are the giant reptilian birds of Garros attacking? What terrible secret lurks deep within the trees?

Before the truth can be revealed, a heavy price will be extracted and loyalties will be tested to the limit.

Of the Zygon Hunt release on vinyl, the Fourth Doctor, Tom Baker said: "Well! I’m at the disposal of the fans who created me and sustain me. If they want me flat and round and vinyl and spinning too, well, I’m their Who to whit to woo."

Nicholas Briggs, Big Finish executive producer and director of Zygon Hunt, says: “Be quick off the mark because these are sure to sell out again. Sainsbury's is an incredible partner to work with and because of the previous demand they've upped the production numbers on each release. I'm delighted for us to be a part of the vinyl resurgence and very pleased that, like our app, we're making it easy for people to listen to our stories."

Designer Mark Plastow said: "Adapting the format for these Big Finish releases has been a joy – I get to indulge in two of my obsessions. I adore Doctor Who and I adore vinyl, and putting the two together makes the world just that little bit better. Art really doesn’t like being squeezed down to a measly 12cm, it wants to be big and bold, it wants to be on your wall!"

You can get the vinyl release of Zygon Hunt from selected Sainsbury’s stores today, the19th of October 2018, and/or from Big Finish at £10.99 on CD or £8.99 on download.

This fantastic release has been produced in a numbered limited edition on coloured vinyl, and is only available in the UK (apologies to our overseas listeners), so start hunting right now!
