Book Description

4 Sep 2006 BBC Audio
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Mixed Bag of Who-Inspired Drama 21 Sep 2009
Format:Audio CD
Although this is released under the 'Doctor Who at the BBC' banner, these are not 'Doctor Who' plays as such - they're actually plays inspired by the series to various extents.

I'd recommend this set for 'Blue Veils and Golden Sands', a Radio 4 Afternoon Play about Delia Derbyshire, the troubled electronic music composer and arranger responsible for the unique sound of the original 'Doctor Who' theme, with a fantastic central performance from Sophie Thompson. 'Regenerations' is more a play about relationships and friendships than 'Doctor Who' itself, although it is set at a 'Doctor Who' convention, and features a guest appearance by Tom Baker himself. 'Dalek, I Love You' left me somewhat baffled, I must admit, with its apparent drifts between fantasy and reality. As such, this is something of a mixed bag, and whether this is for you would very much depend upon your fondness for radio drama, and whether you're buying it for the 'Doctor Who' connection above all else - if the latter, you may be slightly disappointed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not what you might be expecting 28 Jun 2014
By Michael Mueller - Published on
Format:Audio CD
These are not Doctor Who Plays, but rather plays which deal with Doctor Who. In the first story, members of the mostly gay Belfast Ireland Doctor Who Appreciation Society are gathering to celebrate their 20th anniversary. Two member of the actual Doctor Who cast are present, barely. The characters throw in cuss words every sentence or so. If that bothers you, I do not recommend this product. The second story is more of a talking head show about the woman who composed the original theme. It is hardly flattering to her, but I can't say whether it is accurate or not. Overall, interesting for completionists or for casual fans to listen to once, but not something I would actually recommend purchasing. The final play "Dalek I Love You" plays on the tropes of Doctor Who geeks, and sci-fi fans in general, as being helpless and hapless emotional cripples socially challenged who still live in mum's basement at age 24. After listening to this one, I regret making this purchase, and docked the product 1.5 stars.
