Doctor Who at the BBC The Plays
Tom Baker and Sophie Aldred appear in one of three full-cast BBC radio dramas based around the real-life worlds of “Doctor Who”. “Doctor Who”, the TV series which millions adore, is the inspiration for these three original radio plays.
Presented in their entirety, they each focus on the effect which the programme has had on the lives of ordinary – and some extraordinary – people.

When he meets the girl of his dreams at a convention, life at home seems set to change forever…This work contains adult themes and language.
