The Big Finish audio drama Infamy of the Zaross
is being released for the first time on vinyl record.
The product is part of an exclusive deal with High Street retailer HMV
and will be available from 16th June. The story stars David Tennant
as the Tenth Doctor and Billie Piper
The strictly limited pressing of Infamy of the Zaross is on yellow 180GM heavyweight vinyl and limited to 750 units.
David Tennant’s Doctor, portrayed on screen from December 2005 until January 2010, returned in the 50th Anniversary special The Day of the Doctor, with Matt Smith and Sir John Hurt in 2013, and on audio for Big Finish with Catherine Tate in 2016.
Billie Piper portrayed the Doctor’s much-loved companion Rose in 2005 and 2006, returning for a number of stories in 2008. She also appeared as The Moment – which had taken Rose’s form – in The Day of the Doctor. This new story was Billie’s eagerly-awaited debut for Big Finish.
A spokesperson from HMV said
We're delighted to welcome Dr. Who back on vinyl in time for for Father's Day. It's just what the Doctor ordered!
Infamy of the Zaross guest stars Camille Coduri
as Jackie Tyler who is Rose Tyler's mum. When Jackie takes a trip to visit her old friend Marge in Norwich, she finds her holiday immediately interrupted in the worst way possible - an alien invasion! The infamous Zaross have come to take over Earth. Or have they?

I'm delighted to see Infamy of the Zaross on vinyl, especially in HMV. I’ve still got my Gran’s old His Master's Voice record player in my house. Quite a prized bit of furniture, which has such a store of memories for me... This record renaissance is delightful and I'm looking forward to listening to that beautiful warm sound on yellow vinyl soon. Nicholas Briggs
executive producer for Big Finish added
It was such a special time for me, working with Billie and David on the TV show, and it is such an honour to revisit it with them on audio.
Executive producer Jason Haigh-Ellery
Getting David and Billie back together was definitely on my bucket list – two wonderful actors who created an era of Doctor Who which is so fondly remembered and who brought a different aspect of the relationship between the Doctor and his companion to the fore – love, both platonic and unrequited. It’s great to have the Tenth Doctor and Rose on record!
The Tenth Doctor Adventures Volume 2, was first released in November 2017 and includes Infamy of the Zaross and two further Tenth Doctor adventures.
