Headphones at the ready! Doctor Who – Time Lord Victorious: The Minds of Magnox is coming to CD, vinyl and digital download in December.
This Tenth Doctor adventure is the latest in the epic Time Lord Victorious saga, which spans comics, novels and audio products. ‘The Minds of Magnox’ is slightly different, though, as it’s more of an audiobook, with actor Jacob Dudman handling the narration responsibilities. This includes his rather good impersonation of the Tenth Doctor himself, David Tennant.
Here’s how the BBC describes the story in the official synopsis…
The Doctor travels with Brian, the Ood assassin, to the planet Magnox, one of the greatest receptacles of knowledge the universe will ever know. The Doctor’s in search of a vital piece of information, but it’s Grade 1 Classified. In order to gain an audience with the Minds of Magnox themselves he must take a dangerous test. Is he smart enough to get through?
Meanwhile, Brian gets involved with the criminal fraternity and is given a job: to assassinate the Minds of Magnox. However, others also have the planet within their sights…
Now, if you’ve listened to a Time Lord Victorious adventure already, you’ll be familiar with Brian the Ood as he’s previously appeared in ‘He Kills Me, He Kills Me Not‘ and ‘The Knight, the Fool and the Dead.’ So ‘The Minds of Magnox’ looks set to continue his story arc, although we’ll have to wait and see how his character fits into the bigger picture.
This latest release will also appeal to Doctor Who collectors, as ‘The Minds of Magnox’ is coming to vinyl. I’m assuming this particular version is limited edition (because, let’s face it, they tend to be) but I can’t see any mention of this on the packaging or in the product description. Still, I wouldn’t linger if you’re considering buying this story for your turntable. It’ll be available from the 4th December.
But if you’re an early bird, ‘The Minds of Magnox’ will also be out a day earlier as a digital download and a CD, if you’re not too fussed about the (potentially) limited edition goodness. It’ll also be available on Audible.
So will you be listening to this new Time Lord Victorious adventure when it launches? And have you been enjoying the story arc so far? Let me know in the comments below.
