The Doctor’s Desert Island Discs

This week’s fourth-wall breaking opening monologue by The Doctor showed us a little of his record collection.


These would make great pocket props - the handy additions that turns a run of the mill cosplay into something special.

I haven’t been able to identify the first record, but the others are:

Haydn Surprise & Military Symphonies 
Conductor : Otto Strauss
Orchestra : Philharmonia Orchestra Of Berlin
Label: Fidelio
Catalogue No : ALT 4048
Published 1963

Beethoven Symphony No 5 in C minor Op 67
Conductor : William Steinburg
Orchestra : Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra
Label : Music For Pleasure
Catalogue No : MFP 2104
Published : 1967
There is also another album with 1970s looking text beginning HA, but its difficult to identify that one.



By the way, did anyone notice the reference to The Idiot’s Lantern with the Magpie Electricals badge on The Doctor’s amplifier?!

  1. Awesome! Yeah I noticed the Magpie Electricals callback when I saw the twitter picks, nice. :) Also just for a easy cosplay prop and well a good record I picked up that version of Beethoven's 5th. :)

  3. I believe it is this one http://www.eesmusic.co.uk/user/Fender/ElectricGuitarAmps/mustangv2-1.jpg

    I haven't extensively searched in case there are other similar variants but it looked like the right one.

  4. Definitely a Fender Mustang practice amp. Easily picked up used under $100.
