Doctor Who lost story ‘The Myth Makers’ getting Vinyl release

Demon Records/BBC presents the narrated TV soundtrack of a ‘lost’ four-part adventure The Myth Busters set in ancient Greece and starring William Hartnell as the First Doctor.

When the TARDIS lands on the plains of Asia Minor, not far from the walled city of Troy, the Doctor is hailed as the great god Zeus. He’s enlisted by the Greek army – led by Odysseus and Agamemnon – to come up with a strategy for defeating the Trojans. With his companions already prisoners of the opposing side, the Doctor draws his inspiration from the legend of a certain wooden horse…

Presented across two 140g vinyl Trojan Sunset splatter discs, this 1965 TV soundtrack – no episodes of which survive as film recordings – is narrated by Peter Purves, who co-stars as the Doctor’s companion Steven, with Maureen O’Brien making her final appearance as Vicki.

The guest cast includes Max Adrian as King Priam, Barrie Ingham as Paris, Frances White as Cassandra and Ivor Salter as Odysseus. Incidental music is by Humphrey Searle, and the Doctor Who theme is courtesy of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop.

The coloured LPs are presented in a gatefold sleeve with fully illustrated inner sleeves. Original episode billings, and full cast and credits, are included.

You can pre-order The Myth Makers on vinyl now ahead of its release on the 27th August.
