The Dalek Invasion of Earth

Episode 1

The Daleks have WON. The Earth has fallen. Propaganda broadcasts, regular patrols, collaborators, black marketeers - all of this before the Doctor, Ian, Barbara and Susan have even arrived. When they do, they are separated and find themselves fighting not just for their survival, but that of the entire planet.

You can't keep a good man down - so the Daleks discover when they make the grievous error of invading the Doctor's favourite planet... but it's a battle with a life-changing outcome for the Doctor's grand-daughter, Susan.

Read by William Russell, who played Ian Chesterton in the original television serial on which this reading is based. Broadcast only 18 years after the end of World War II, this classic story addresses a very wartime anxiety... what would Britain have been like as an occupied nation?

SAT 09:00 Doctor Who (b0076jh7)
Who Made Who

Five decades doesn't mean much to a time traveller, but after fifty years, the Doctor is still a mystery.

Radio 4 Extra doesn't have all the answers, but we can shed a little light. Not just a TV phenomenon, Doctor Who has also taken us into strange new sonic realms and the written word. Mark Gatiss examines the Target novels, which offered a glimpse into those early stories before video. We hear from surviving cast and crew of the original pilot episode, the people who gave the show its unique sound in Dance of the Daleks, and finally we catch up with Susan - the Doctor's Granddaughter, last seen on 22nd-century Earth.

In between, John Lloyd, AL Kennedy and others who recall those monochrome early years examine what makes them so special. Hosting it is Tracy-Ann Oberman, not only a star of Friday Night Dinner and Eastenders but a Doctor Who villainess in her own right.

Tracy-Ann Oberman is an actor and writer with an extensive variety of diverse credits; Big Train, Toast of London and Monroe to name but three. For Doctor Who fans she will be known as Yvonne Hartman - the woman who saw off Rose and set up Torchwood.

SAT 20:30 I'm Dave Podmore, Get Me Out There (b03hn2rt)
After his over-exuberant victory celebrations at the Oval, Dave Podmore finds himself in the celebrity doghouse.

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"?

SAT 21:30 The New Elizabethans (b01k2cqp)
Benjamin Britten

The New Elizabethans: Benjamin Britten. One of the greatest composers of the 20th century. A conductor and musician of gifted brilliance, Britten was writing symphonies from the age of twelve and learning from the composer Frank Bridge in his early teens.

A pacifist during WWII he travelled through America with the singer Peter Pears (who would later become his life-long companion) and befriended writers like W.H.Auden and Christopher Isherwood.

He is famous for operas like Peter Grimes, choral works such as The War Requiem which he wrote for the reconsecration of Coventry Cathedral and enjoyed composing for children: The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra is one of his best known pieces.

He founded the Aldeburgh Festival on the Suffolk coast, which continues to this day, and the Britten-Pears Foundation still promotes his work with Peter Pears. He refused a knighthood but was a member of the Order of Merit and accepted a life peerage in 1976.

The New Elizabethans have been chosen by a panel of leading historians, chaired by Lord (Tony) Hall, Chief Executive of London's Royal Opera House. The panellists were Dominic Sandbrook, Bamber Gascoigne, Sally Alexander, Jonathan Agar, Maria Misra and Sir Max Hastings.

Producer: Clare Walker.

Lucie Miller

After the Dalek Invasion of Earth - a rematch...

Lucie Miller (Sheridan Smith) has had a troubled relationship with the Doctor (Paul McGann). Forced into the TARDIS by the Time Lords, parting company on bad terms, they seemed to patch up their differences. Lucie wound up travelling the world with the Doctor's great-grandson Alex in the 22nd century.

However, it isn't long before the Doctor is needed again - the Daleks return for a second attempt after he stopped them invading Earth in his first body. This time, it looks like they might succeed, and the Doctor is nowhere to be seen. What's more, it seems another old foe is part of the Daleks' plans - and so is an old friend.

As the odds stack up against Lucie and her human allies, the Doctor finally comes to her aid - but will he get there in time? When he does, will it ultimately matter?

First in a two-part story, this is a full-cast audio drama.

Lucie (Sheridan Smith) and her friends get him to the TARDIS, but the full extent of the Daleks' new plans for the Earth become clear. It also becomes apparent that the Dalek Time Controller is very much alive and seeking revenge on the Time Lord for an earlier encounter. The chances of victory seem slim, and as rebel forces slowly gather their resources for an attack, the division between friends and enemies isn't so clear cut.

When the final confrontation occurs, the Doctor finds the cost is high and uncomfortably close to home...

Series 2

Billirock the Black

Written by David Kay and Gavin Smith, Mordrin McDonald is a 2000 year old Wizard living in the modern world where settling garden disputes and watching Countdown are just as important as slaying the odd Jakonty Dragon.

Step into the magically mundane world that is the life of 21st century wizard Mordrin McDonald. An isolated 2000-year-old sorcerer with enough power in his small finger to destroy a town, yet not even enough clout to get his bins emptied on time by the local council. Even for such a skilful sorcerer - modern life is rubbish!

Mordrin is deadpan, dry and makes delicious jams. He initially set up as a plc for income tax relief, but has found it a useful vehicle to help him bolster his Wizard skill set and his range of services. (Even a wizard has to diversify).

He's been running Fruity Potions from his cave for the past few years, in between completing the odd quest as instructed by the Wizard Council. In the past his services were to help kings in battles of good and evil, or as he prefers to put it, 'assisting with neighbour disputes.'

In this episode Mordrin is recruited to help re-capture evil sorcerer Billirock the Black who has escaped from his prison under Stirling Castle and is hell-bent on exacting his revenge.

Mordrin ..... David Kay
Bernard The Blue ..... Jack Docherty
