I listen rather than read on train journeys as I can't stand being jostled by other travelers, and walking & listening is so easy

  • "I wish I knew about this when it wa..."

    Overall

    I haven't laughed as hard for AGES as I did while listening to this - not only is the script incredibly well written, but the performances are brilliant, and the actors who are doing the voice work are all great



    The concept is amusing in itself, but add in the comedy stars who acted this and you have comedy GOLD! One of the best things is having Sophie Winkleman playing the Elven princess, because imagining her in the role will make any red blooded man smile



    I'm buying the second and third series as soon as I can to continue listening to the adventures, and hope that they're as brilliant as the first one is, or even hope that they're better - I will certainly look forward to the work of these writers on any radio broadcasts or audio books I find



    Giving this anything less than 5 stars would be impossible for me as this was the funniest listen I've had in AGES - long live ElvenQuest!

    Pretty uncontroversial, this. At least, if I dare say so, for anybody with an imagination and a sense of humour.

    I'd seen the television series quite recently and, for a short time, my recollections of the television scripts were distracting me from the narrative in this audiobook - it was very similar, but not identical. However, before too long the memories were usurped, and I was entirely happy to go on the adventure all over again, as though it were the first time.

    Yep. It's great.

The Scarifyers is broadcast on BBC Radio 4 Extra, and has been described as 'rollicking good fun', 'a slice of audio perfection', 'the smartest and most enjoyable thing on British radio' and 'like Tintin but with the lights out.'

Based (however implausibly) on science, these radio broadcasts reflected the depths of the nation's fears, and the boundlessness of its imagination.

    Ben Moor's comic sci-fi saga with Sarah Solemani and Dan Antopolski follows Edna Turner's adventures in London's bizarre parallel city. In this first series, she finds a new job and visits the theatre (or should that be 'untheatre'?) Meanwhile, genuinely faceless bureaucrats threaten to run London, as Edna's mum arrives, and London gets stranger and stranger for Edna, Tankerton, and both the Carlos.

    This is the "so-called" reason the government won't reveal all they know about UFOs. The panic from this broadcast was significant. Although Orson Welles, Mercury Theatre and the Columbia Broadcasting System couldn't "soap the windows" of their listeners the night before Halloween back in 1938, they could annihilate the world for them. And that's exactly what they did with this radio adaptation of H.G. Wells' famous novel, War of the Worlds.

    From the late 1940's through the 1950's, in a world where space travel and nuclear annihilation were no longer merely the stuff of fantasy, science fiction began to achieve a new popularity. And, the work of noted genre writers began to be adapted in movies and radio programs. Based (however implausibly) on science, these radio broadcasts reflected the depths of the nation's fears, and the boundlessness of its imagination.

    The complete first series of My First Planet - a sitcom set on a shiny new planet, starring Nicholas Lyndhurst, Vicki Pepperdine (Jo Brand's Getting On) & Tom Goodman-Hill (Another Case of Milton Jones) The story so far: Unfortunately, Burrows the leader of the colony has died on the voyage, so his Number 2, Brian (Nicholas Lyndhurst), is now in charge. He's a nice enough chap, but no alpha male, and his desire to sort things out with a nice friendly meeting infuriates the colony's Chief Physician, Lillian (Vicki Pepperdine), who'd really rather everyone was walking round in tight colour-coded tunics....
