This excellent collection includes not only the last three stories from season one of Dan Dare’s Audio Adventures, but also the bonus feature documentary ‘Dan Dare: 21st Century Spaceman’.
Reign of the Robots
Dan Dare and his crew finally return to Earth. Landing in central London, they find the city deserted - or that's how it seems at first. But soon Dare faces an army of ruthless machines, robots who have conquered the planet and placed the surviving humans in slave camps. The robots are too powerful and too numerous to be resisted, and their invasion is complete. With limited resources, Dare, Digby and Peabody face their greatest challenge yet - to liberate planet Earth…
As work begins to rebuild planet Earth after the devastation of the robot invasion, Dare and his friends in Space Fleet remain vigilant, certain that it is only a matter of time before the Mekon launches a fresh attack. When the wreck of the Nautilus - an experimental ship lost over a decade before - appears in orbit of the moon, Dare, Digby and Peabody are sent to investigate. They find the ship and its crew were destroyed by advanced alien weapons. All clues lead them to Saturn’s moons. With Earth still vulnerable our heroes must journey to an unknown world…
Prisoners of Space
After a sequence of near non-stop adventures Dare, Digby and Peabody find themselves in a strange limbo of paranoid calm. Whilst there’s been no sign of the Mekon anywhere in the solar system, Dare is certain Earth hasn’t seen the last of the evil alien. Mysterious spaceship disappearances near Venus, an Academy student accidentally launching a prototype new spacecraft, and a floating prison cell in space... reveal themselves as all part of the Mekon’s latest plan to defeat his arch-enemy Dan Dare once and for all…
Dan Dare: 21st Century Spaceman
Science journalist Richard Hollingham explores whether the reality of space exploration is catching up with the Dan Dare universe. Featuring interviews with the cast, director and lead writer about re-inventing Dare for the 21st century, Richard meets a real rocket scientist who owes his career to the pilot of the future.
Audio dramatisation based on the Eagle Comic strip ‘Dan Dare’ created by Rev. Marcus Morris and Frank Hampson.
