Before Quatermass, before the Doctor, one icon of British science fiction shone out beyond the stars. Dan Dare.
But what becomes of the ‘Pilot of the Future’ when the future arrives?
In B7 Media’s much praised dramatic audio reboot, Dan Dare lives again.
Adapted from the original Eagle comic strips – the first ‘Venus’ series onwards – and inspired by the 1951 Radio Luxembourg series, this is a new Dan Dare for our times, dramatising six complete stories.
Dan Dare defends the Earth against the Mekon, their battle beginning anew.
‘Voyage to Venus’
‘The Red Moon Mystery’
‘Marooned on Mercury’
‘Reign of the Robots’
‘Prisoners of Space’
Includes ‘New Worlds’ by Imran Ahmad, featuring music from the Dan Dare series.
And behind-the-scenes documentary…
