Now Playing on iPlayer Radio: Dalek, I Love You

The time between series of Doctor Who (what I lovingly refer to as the “wilderness” months…) can be excruciating and slow. What’s a Whovian to do, dear reader?

In addition to speculating on just what kind of Doctor Capaldi is going to be or who Danny Pink really is, you might consider something a little different.

Available for your immediate listening pleasure, Colin Sharpe’s short play, Dalek, I Love You, is currently a streaming option in BBC iPlayer Radio. The story follows a Whovian named Nigel who meets a “curious girl” at a Sci-Fi convention. The play originally aired on BBC 7 (now known as BBC Radio 4 Extra) back in 2006.

At a running time of only 30 minutes, it is certainly worth your attention. If you haven’t heard the play yet, will you be checking it out? If you’ve already listened, what do you think?

Dalek, I Love You can also be found on the compilation CD Doctor Who at the BBC, the Plays, which can be picked up for a low price on Amazon.


“That’s bacon! Are you trying to poison me?” And from that line on, I’ve been unable to stop watching, reading, musing about the Doctor. As a recent transplant to the Whoniverse, I’ve been trying to soak up as much Who-related knowledge as possible. That journey has taken me from the Tenth Planet to the Fields of Trenzalore and gently set me at the edge of my seat for what’s next. It’s an honor to be here and I plan to bring a unique perspective. I hope you’ll enjoy the journey alongside me.
