: Doctor Who: 42

7/13, series three. 42. The Doctor and Martha are trapped on a spaceship hurtling out of control towards a boiling sun. See panel. (S)

Doctor Who
7.00pm BBC3 DRAMA Michelle Collins as spaceship captain? If you can swallow that, then the dubious astrophysics of the plot will be of small concern. This is the one about a ship 42 minutes away from plunging into a sun, which is in fact a living organism. It takes over the crew who lumber around growling "Burn with me." Bearing striking similarities with Planet of Evil (a 1975 Tom Baker), this episode is told almost in real time and benefits hugely from the creative precision of director Graeme Harper. David Tennant is at his most heroic and intense, as writer Chris Chibnall puts the Doctor through agonies. PM

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome
