Note:  Catalogue number: REC 316. Curiously, several stories are referred to by pre-production titles on the back cover: Dr Who and the Exillons (note the mis-spelling of "Exxilons") ended up being titled Death to the Daleks, The Destructors became The Sontaran Experiment, The Enemy Within became The Invisible Enemy, The Hand of Death is better known to us as The Hand of Fear, etc.

Cover blurb:
Everyone knows that Dr Who's Tardis is bigger on the inside than outside; and the selection of aural locations from the Doctor's travels will equally broaden your horizons. No less than seven alien worlds are visited, together with some extraordinary, extra-dimensional occurences [sic] encountered on Earth (Sol. 3 in the Mutters Spiral). Add to these an audiogram of the Doctor's own mind processes, Tardis operations, some weapons for self-defence and your galactic safety is ensured.
Time-Lord Note: A source of jelly-babies is recommended to complete the illusion of Time Travel.

Note:  Like the Spanish CD edition below, this edition makes absolutely no mention of Doctor Who anywhere on the front or back cover — the title simply translates as the generic "Sound Effects Vol. 19: Science Fiction".

Note:  Part of the BBC's "Vintage Beeb" range, which re-released old BBC LPs on CD with the original vintage artwork and a "vinyl-look" CD. This was the second of three such releases devoted to Doctor Who, the others being Genesis of the Daleks in 2011 and Sci-Fi Sound Effects in 2013.

Cover blurb:
Digitally-remastered sound effects from the 1970s presented on a special vinyl-look CD, with original album sleeve notes

Everyone knows that the TARDIS is bigger on the inside than the outside; and a selection of aural locations from the Doctor's travels will equally broaden your horizons.

No fewer than seven alien worlds are visited, together with some extra-ordinary, extra-dimensional occurences encountered on Earth (Sol 3 in the Mutters Spiral). Add to these an audiogram of the Doctor's own mind processes, TARDIS operations, some weapons for self-defence and your galactic safety is ensured.

Time Lord note: a source of jelly babies is recommended to complete the illusion of time travel.

Vintage Beeb: classic albums first available as BBC LPs, now on CD for the first time ever.

Note:  In a similar vein to 2011's Dalek mini-album, this was a limited edition (1,000 copies) vinyl LP issued as part of Record Store Day on April 21st 2012. The track listing, sleeve artwork and liner notes were all intended to be identical to the original 1978 vinyl release, although the audio was remastered by Mark Ayres for this release.

Cover blurb:
Same as original LP edition.
