Compiled for the reference department of the Doctor Who Appreciation Society, and available exclusively to members via mail-order. The society had also released a collection of stock music from the black and white era in 1987, alongside a compilation of Mark Ayres' incidental music from the Myth Makers interview series. Dominic Glynn seems to have been happy for his incidental music to be distributed - he is also known to have sent privately dubbed cassette copies of his Happiness Patrol score to inquiring fans. With the sole exception of Elizabeth Parker's Timelash suite, this remains the only commercial release of music from the Colin Baker era. The Trial Theme was rerecorded and extended in 1990 for a flexidisc (pictured, right) distributed with Doctor Who Magazine, as promotion for the proposed Silva Screen CD, Black Light - The Remixes. No further tracks were recorded.

Glynn's music from The Trial of a Timelord was retitled and bootlegged on CD for sale at Doctor Who conventions sometime around 1999 - 2000, with his Doctor Who theme (opening and closing titles) offered as additional tracks. The music from Dragonfire, also retitled, was bootlegged on a CD with Keff McCulloch's Time and the Rani score.

Highlights from the original incidental scores for these Peter Davison stories were presented as continuous suites on another Julian Knott-produced soundtrack cassette. The tracks were compiled in sequence, and included some lengthly silences (over 15 seconds in places) that formed part of the original production cues, allowing for dialogue and action. This mail-order cassette appears to have had even fewer sales than Space Adventures and Black Light: the code, JPD1 (as opposed to RDMP1 and 2 for the former tapes) suggests that this was more of a private release, possibly without the backing/distribution of Domintemporal Services or the DWAS at-large; the only other JPD release, the 1998 Space Adventures CD (JPD2 CD) was certainly a private one.

Although Silva Screen announced plans to reissue both Space Adventures and Black Light on CD, and an album with music from Logopolis and Castrovalva was mooted, then abandoned, in the early 1990s, no attempt appears to have been made to reissue the Mawdryn Undead suite, and this rare cassette remains its only release (except for a late 90s bootleg CD, discovered at an American convention, which cheerfully duplicated the entirety of Corridor of Eternity). The score to Castrovalva was eventually released as a music-only track on the January 2007 DVD 'New Beginnings'.
