Tranquil Repose is a Doctor Who tape zine on audio cassette.
For other similar zines, see: Doctor Who Tapezines.
A brief innovation in the mid-80s was the Tape zine, fanzine recorded on to audio tape. Here we have three major contenders, the longest running of these was The Master Tape, then, in my opinion, the best of them all, Tranquil Repose and finally the idiosyncratic CT of Death. All three of these were very entertaining affairs and it is a pity that this particular form of fan communication has not found its way on to CD. There was, at one point, a video zine as I recall, but this was at the time when blank videos were still quite expensive and again this particular medium never really caught on.
