Doctor Who has recently finished another successful run on BBC One with the Tenth Doctor, David Tennant at the helm of the TARDIS. Now we take a step back in time and welcome to BBC7 his eighth persona, as played by Paul McGann.

Paul reprises the role he played in the 1996 anglo-American TV movie of Doctor Who. These stories on BBC7 tell the tale of what happened next...

A four-part story written by Alan Barnes, directed by Gary Russell and produced by Big Finish Productions.
Sundays at 6.00-6.30pm, repeated at midnight

After a dangerous encounter in the space/time vortex, the Doctor finds himself on Earth, October 1930. Or rather above it, aboard the British airship R101 on its maiden voyage over France. Also on board is a young stowaway, Charlotte 'Charley' Pollard, seeking adventure and excitement away from her stifling family atmosphere. What Charley doesn't know but the Doctor does is that the flight is destined to end in tragedy, although no-one really knows why. Not even the Doctor, although maybe the passenger in Cabin 43 can help...

Storm Warning also stars Gareth Thomas (Blake, from Blake's 7)

Episode one (Sunday 27 August)
It's 1930, and the airship R101 takes to the skies. But why is one of the stewards acting so strangely? Who is the unusual passenger in Cabin 43? And just what is a 1960's police box doing on board?

Episode two (Sunday 3 September)
The R101 is under attack, the storm is breaking - and the passenger in Cabin 43 needs to see the Doctor.

Episode three (Sunday 10 September)
While the Doctor makes a journey into the interior, Rathbone prepares to carry out his mission.

Episode four (Sunday 17 September)
The R101 flies into history - but will the Doctor and Charley go out in a blaze of glory?
