Doctor Who takes over BBC 4-Extra

As reported on Doctor Who NewsBBC 4-Extra is becoming the Doctor Who channel for the anniversary week. Sunday saw the broadcast of the reading of the very first Doctor Who novel, Doctor Who and the Daleks (aka Doctor Who in an Exciting Adventure with the Daleks) in its entirety. (You can read my review of this adaptation here.)

Following this, last night BBC 4-X gave us the seventh Doctor Big Finish play Protect and Survive, a tale of the Cold War turned hot, while tonight they present us with the first of the '1963' series, the fifth Doctor story Fanfare for the Common Men. This one really is a cracker, and I'll be reviewing it, along with the remaining two parts of the series, soon. The rest of the week will feature Big Finish adventures for the seventh and eighth Doctors, another Dalek novelisation reading, and a special documentary.

If you don't fancy listening to hours of Doctor Who in one go, don't worry. Each programme remains available for listening for one week following broadcast.
