SAT 18:00 Doctor Who (b01pw3hm)
Doctor Who and the Daleks

Episode 1

Tom and Jerry, Lex Luthor and Superman, Seinfeld and Newman... all great feuds start somewhere.
So it is for the Doctor and the bane of all his travels, the Daleks. How did their paths first cross? Were the Daleks always ruthless and evil? How did they come into being?

Clearly the nascent 1960s nuclear threat looms large in this evocative tale, no more so than on the radiation-ravaged world of Skaro. It's there the TARDIS heads for the Doctor's fateful first meeting...
It's not just the Doctor's first rendezvous with the Daleks. Struggling schoolteacher Ian Chesterton gets more than he bargained for when he stumbles across a car accident at night.

All of these questions are answered in the very first adventure involving the metal-plated meanies. Not only that, but it's told in the first person by one of the very first companions, Ian Chesterton (as played by William Russell).

This evocative reading is based on the original TV serial from 1963. However, expect a very different slant on how the Doctor and Ian met, involving Barnes Common and everlasting matches.

Episode 1

The TARDIS is out of control! The Doctor is missing! His young friends, Ace and Hex must cope alone

Starring Sophie Aldred as Ace and Philip Oliver as Hex.

Protect and Survive... If those two words fill you with fear, you must have grown up in the 1980s.

Back in the era of Stanislav Petrov, Threads and 99 Luftballons, the prospect of nuclear conflict never seemed more real. Thank goodness it never happened.... Or did it?

The Doctor's young companions Hex and Ace are plunged alone into the late '80s, where history has gone horrifyingly wrong. Global tension is escalating, and the world trembles on the brink of a final, terrible war. What happened to glasnost and perestroika? Why are people actually building fallout shelters?

Hex and Ace aren't too worried - after all, the Doctor (Sylvester McCoy) will rescue them... won't he?

It's Sylvester McCoy's turn to time travel, in this four-part full-cast audio drama. Sylvester has not only played the Time Lord but a wizard also - Radagast the Brown in the recent big screen adaptation of The Hobbit. He was also part of the Ken Campbell roadshow.

Protect and Survive

Episode 2

Can Ace and a blinded Hex survive World War Three? And there's no sign of the Doctor...

Starring Sylvester McCoy as the Seventh Doctor. With Sophie Aldred as Ace and Ian Hogg as Albert

Protect and Survive... If those two words fill you with fear, you must have grown up in the 1980s.

Back in the era of Stanislav Petrov, Threads and 99 Luftballons, the prospect of nuclear conflict never seemed more real. Thank goodness it never happened.... Or did it?

The Doctor's young companions Hex and Ace are plunged alone into the late '80s, where history has gone horrifyingly wrong. Global tension is escalating, and the world trembles on the brink of a final, terrible war. What happened to glasnost and perestroika? Why are people actually building fallout shelters?

Hex and Ace aren't too worried - after all, the Doctor (Sylvester McCoy) will rescue them... won't he?

It's Sylvester McCoy's turn to time travel, in this four-part full-cast audio drama. Sylvester has not only played the Time Lord but a wizard also - Radagast the Brown in the recent big screen adaptation of The Hobbit. He was also part of the Ken Campbell roadshow.

V I is comfortable packing heat and trailing nasty suspects but she never loses touch with her basic femininity. Paretsky says of her Warshawski: "I was troubled by the way women were portrayed in (detective fiction) they always seemed either evil or powerless. I thought it was time for a tough, smart, likeable female private investigator".

Episode 2

Tough private eye VI Warshawski continues the battle to clear herself of a murder that she didn't commit. Concluded by Buffy Davis.

The victim is a famous crime fiction writer. Her latest book threatens to uncover the shame of a small American town whose dark secrets and those of her tormentor have been buried for decades.

Sara Paretsky has created one of the most popular female sleuths in modern crime fiction. Her heroine, V I Warshawski, is a strong female character in a male-dominated world. V I is comfortable packing heat and trailing nasty suspects but she never loses touch with her basic femininity. Paretsky says of her Warshawski: "I was troubled by the way women were portrayed in (detective fiction) they always seemed either evil or powerless. I thought it was time for a tough, smart, likeable female private investigator".

A brush with death at his local reservoir then annoys Pod even more, if only for thwarting his plan to get on series 2 of "Splash!" with Tom Daley. It's a good job Radio One County's Andy Hamer is on hand to take his speeding points, as not even Pod would do that to his wife. (She's already banned after she covered for him last time).

With Ashes fever upon us again, Pod knows that Down Under is the place to be, but the big question is will he get picked... for a juicy jungle payday on "I'm a Celebrity"?
