Following the sell-out success of Big Finish Productions Doctor Who stories on vinyl in 2018, the audio company has announced another exclusive collaboration with ASDA supermarket.

ASDA will launch Doctor Who: The Creeping Death starring David Tennant and Catherine Tate on Friday 24th May 2019. It will be released as a Limited Edition run of 1,000 copies on neon green vinyl – only available in the UK.
London, 1952, and a deadly smog envelops the capital. But something even more dangerous – and alien – is hiding within the mists. When the Doctor and Donna get lost in the fog, they find a motley group of Londoners trying to make their way home. Soon the stakes are raised as death creeps along fume-choked streets, and not everyone will make it out alive...
David Tennant portrayed the Doctor on screen from 2005 until January 2010, returning to star alongside Matt Smith and John Hurt in the 50th Anniversary Special, The Day of the Doctor, in 2013.

Catherine Tate made her debut as Donna Noble in December 2006, and after a series and two Christmas specials, she made her last appearance alongside David on the 1st January 2010. Their on-screen partnership is generally regarded as one of the great high-points of the enduring Doctor Who phenomenon.

The Creeping Death, written by Roy Gill, is one of three stories in the latest volume of the Tenth Doctor’s audio adventures. Doctor Who – The Tenth Doctor Adventures Volume Three (Limited Edition) which is also being released in May.

Roy Gill said
Being asked to write for David Tennant and Catherine Tate was already a huge thrill, but how awesome to hear The Creeping Death will be getting a vinyl release too! I think this nineteen-fifties tale of a band of London misfits against whatever-it-is that lurks in the smog will work beautifully on a neon green LP!

I’m a big vinyl fan already – I share my flat with three record decks, goodness knows how many records, and one long-suffering partner – so I’m super-eager to get my hands on a copy!
Doctor Who – The Tenth Doctor Adventures Volume Three (Limited Edition) is available for pre-order now as a five-disc CD collector’s edition – limited to 5,000 copies – in deluxe bookset packaging for only £35, with the download version for £25 (available on release).
