The Time Lord's companion survives a global plague, a first strike by the deadliest foe.

After the Dalek Invasion of Earth - a rematch...

Lucie Miller (Sheridan Smith) has had a troubled relationship with the Doctor (Paul McGann). Forced into the TARDIS by the Time Lords, parting company on bad terms, they seemed to patch up their differences. Lucie wound up travelling the world with the Doctor's great-grandson Alex in the 22nd century.

However, it isn't long before the Doctor is needed again - the Daleks return for a second attempt after he stopped them invading Earth in his first body. This time, it looks like they might succeed, and the Doctor is nowhere to be seen. What's more, it seems another old foe is part of the Daleks' plans - and so is an old friend.

As the odds stack up against Lucie and her human allies, the Doctor finally comes to her aid - but will he get there in time? When he does, will it ultimately matter?

First in a two-part story, this is a full-cast audio drama.

The legend dates back to Roman times, at least: a great White Worm, as wide as a man, slithers out of the rocks of the Dark Peak Gap to take animals, sometimes even children, for its food.

When the Doctor and Leela arrive in the wilds of Derbyshire, only to get caught up in the hunt for a missing girl, they soon discover that the legend of the Worm is very much alive - even now, in 1979.

Worse still, it seems that the Doctor isn't the only renegade Time Lord on the trail of this deadly and mysterious Worm...

Tracy-Ann Oberman, comedy star and Doctor's enemy, celebrates the minds behind a Time Lord

Five decades doesn't mean much to a time traveller, but after fifty years, the Doctor is still a mystery.

Radio 4 Extra doesn't have all the answers, but we can shed a little light. Not just a TV phenomenon, Doctor Who has also taken us into strange new sonic realms and the written word. Mark Gatiss examines the Target novels, which offered a glimpse into those early stories before video. We hear from surviving cast and crew of the original pilot episode, the people who gave the show its unique sound in Dance of the Daleks, and finally we catch up with Susan - the Doctor's Granddaughter, last seen on 22nd-century Earth.

In between, John Lloyd, AL Kennedy and others who recall those monochrome early years examine what makes them so special. Hosting it is Tracy-Ann Oberman, not only a star of Friday Night Dinner and Eastenders but a Doctor Who villainess in her own right.

Tracy-Ann Oberman is an actor and writer with an extensive variety of diverse credits; Big Train, Toast of London and Monroe to name but three. For Doctor Who fans she will be known as Yvonne Hartman - the woman who saw off Rose and set up Torchwood.
