Four out of eight stories will be broadcast, from the series first released by Big Finish in 2009. Radio Seven has previously broadcast the first two series of the Eighth Doctor Adventures.
The series starts on BBC Radio 7 on Sunday 16th May at 6pm with a repeat at midnight BST.

BBC America presents a clip from Saturday's Doctor Who episode, Flesh and Stone.
The Doctor has an intense confrontation with the Weeping Angels. Meanwhile, Amy collapses in the forest…
Final figures for Episode Five Flesh and Stone published today by
BARB show the story was watched by
8.50 million viewers.
On BBC One the programme got 8.02 million watching where it was the fifth most watched programme for the channel for the week. An additional 0.48 million watched on BBC HD.
The BBC Three Sunday repeat just sneaked into the Top 30 with a confirmed audience of 0.66 million viewers.
Unofficial overnight figures for The Vampires of Venice was
watched by 6.2 million viewers with a share of 30.6% of
5.90 million watched on BBC One, where it was again the most watched programme of the evening, with an additional 0.24 million watching on BBC HD.
The rating was down slightly on the previous week, most probably due to the earlier time slot. On ITV1, Funniest Ever You've Been Framed! had 4.4 million watching.
This is now showing a few parallels with Doctor Who of old, that constantly shifting the times of transmission will mean that viewing figures will drop.
As heard in Doctor Who: Podshock 192, here is our video interview with Paul Castle talking about his book, Shooty Dog Thing. This interview was recorded at the Gallifrey One convention, Gallifrey 21 in Los Angeles, CA in February 2010. Ken Deep and Louis Trapani (off camera) sit down with Paul during his first time attending a Gallifrey One convention.
