Ratings:
Length: 4 hours

Summary

This excellent collection includes the last three stories from Season One of Dan Dare's Audio Adventures and the bonus feature documentary Dan Dare: 21st Century Spaceman.

Reign of the Robots

Dan Dare and his crew return to Earth. Landing in London, they find the city deserted - or that's how it seems at first. But soon Dare faces an army of robots who have conquered the planet and placed the humans in slave camps. The robots are too powerful and 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.

Operation Saturn

As work begins to rebuild Earth after the devastation of the robot invasion, Dare and his friends in Space Fleet remain vigilant, certain it is only a matter of time before the Mekon launches a fresh attack. When the wreck of the Nautilus - an experimental ship lost 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 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 nonstop adventures, Dare, Digby and Peabody find themselves in a 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 spacecraft, and a floating prison cell in space reveal themselves as parts of the Mekon's latest plan to defeat his archenemy, Dan Dare, once and for all.
