Mordrin McDonald: 21st Century Wizard

Series 3

Episode 4: The Start, the Middle, and the End of Time

Duration: 15 minutes

First broadcast: on BBC Radio 4 FMLatest broadcast: on BBC Radio 4 Extra

Step into the magically mundane world that is the life of 21st Century Wizard Mordrin McDonald. An isolated 2000-year-old Scottish sorcerer with enough power in his small finger to destroy a town, yet hasn't enough clout to get a speed bump installed outside his cave by the local Council. Even for such a skilful sorcerer - modern life is rubbish!

In this episode Mordrin (David Kay) decides he has to do something to rescue his chances of ever getting together with Heather (Hannah Donaldson), who has just announced her engagement to slime-ball Aiden (Donald Pirie). He asks Bernard The Blue (Jack Docherty) to borrow the Timepiece of Trapathia to travel back in time and make up for all the missed opportunities with Heather.
