Courtesy of BBC Studios, we have a truly special collectors’ prize for five winners — the complete “Primary Phase”, now released for the first time on heavyweight red vinyl, in a striking sleeve designed with specially commissioned artwork, each worth £75.99.

As a bonus, the first of the five winners drawn will also receive an additional print of the cover artwork, signed by Neil Gaiman — who has written the introduction to the collection. This winner will also receive a Blu-ray of the original BBC television adaptation, including brand-new extras. The other four winners will get a DVD to go with their vinyl (both the Blu-ray and DVD go on sale on 1 October).
