Doctor Who at the BBC, The Plays

cd-dwatbbcplaysDoctor 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.

“Regenerations” by Daragh Carville: In this powerful and moving play, a group of friends reunite for an annual Doctor Who convention. Set against a backdrop of the Belfast troubles, the play deals with themes of sexuality and love, and features appearances by Tom Baker and Sophie Aldred.

“Blue Veils and Golden Sands” by Martyn Wade: Delia Derbyshire was the delightful and unusual woman who created the unique sound of the original Doctor Who theme tune.

This is a dramatised account of her early days at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, and her later recollections of that time. “Dalek, I Love You” by Colin Sharpe: Nigel’s obsession with Doctor Who is a source of some concern to his mother. 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.

    I loved Regenerations it was a well written wee story some of the subject matter wouldn’t of appealled to everyone but then it wasn’t aimed at a young listening audience, personally I’d like to see it filmed.
