D for Dexter Returns
Series four of D For Dexter begins on Monday November 13th and runs for a week in the BBC Radio 4 15-Minute Drama slot (10.40am and online).
Skye and Dexter are doing okay – just. Now aged 14, Skye (Sydney Wade) has been excluded from school, which at least gives her time to get five-year-old Dexter to his class on time. Skye never knows if her mum Jak (Una McNulty) will be in, out or out of it. Neighbour Mia (Julie Riley) gives a helping hand but when Jak’s new friend Leanne (Etta Fusi) turns up on the doorstep, their fragile routine descends into chaos.
Directed by Mary Ward Lowery, this award-winning annual drama is written for the BBC Children in Need appeal. Series four was developed with the help of Footsteps 2000, a Children in Need-funded organisation which supports young people affected by a loved one’s substance abuse.
D For Dexter is broadcast around 10.40am on BBC Radio Four. It can also be heard on BBC iPlayer.
