Eighth DoctorLucie

Like the previous season on BBC7 digital radio, these are 50 minute episodes, on Sundays.

The latest BBC7 7th Dimension schedule because the dates here may change, click here.

(Update: Links updated after this month’s BBC7 website redesign.)

Click “read the rest” for the dates of the episodes, but please note the titles of episodes 7&8 do give a hint of the plot…

Dead London – 19 October 6.00pm and Midnight. (Pat Mills writes for Doctor Who, finally.)
Max Warp – 26 October 6.00pm and Midnight.
Brave New Town – 02 November 6.00pm and Midnight.
The Skull of Sobek – 09 November 6.00pm and Midnight. (Written by Marc Platt.)
Grand Theft Cosmos – 16 November 6.00pm and Midnight.
The Zygon Who Fell To Earth – 23 November 6.00pm and Midnight. (Paul Magrs’s sequel to his own Horror of Glam Rock last season.)
The two-parter Sisters Of The Flame/Vengeance Of Morbius– 30 November 6.00pm and Midnight / 07 December 6.00pm and Midnight.

Update September 30th, 2008: Pat Mills has written for the Fourth Doctor Comic in Doctor Who Weekly, but when I mentioned “finally” I was thinking of the time he almost wrote about a Space Whale for the Fifth Doctor on television.

Update October 21st, 2008: The Radio Times says that Dead London is “Episode 1 of 6.” Sisters of the Flame and Vengeance of Morbius will not be broadcast on BBC7 this year. Links updated after this month’s BBC7 website redesign.

Update April 07th, 2009: I mentioned in a earlier update that Pat Mills “almost wrote about a Space Whale for the Fifth Doctor on television” – Big Finish have asked Pat Mills to finally finish the script, for a Sixth Doctor audio planned for June 2010. Big Finish say of The Space Whale “it was originally written for the fourth Doctor, then the Fifth, and then the Sixth … he admitted that the Sixth Doctor version was by far his favourite as early attempts had been complicated by having too many companions”.
