Upcoming Whovian Stuff on BBC Radio 7

Bit of a Whovian bonanza on BBC Radio 7 this weekend. First up, at midnight on Saturday night (and on BBC iPlayer for 7 days afterward), there's The Story of Doctor Who, featuring Russell T. Davies and Julie Gardner, among others. As someone who's read The Writer's Tale, listened to the podcasts and commentaries, and all of that, I'm not sure that Davies or Gardner have much left to say that would surprise me, but I'll probably tune in anyway.

This weekend also marks the 50th anniversary of The Navy Lark, which BBC 7 is marking with a mini-season of programs. Of particular interest is An Hour With Jon Pertwee, which is being broadcast a few times this Sunday. I'll definitely tune in for that.
