Nebulous | [Graham Duff]

Nebulous

The year is 2099 and Professor Nebulous (Gatiss) is the director of KENT, the Key Environmental Nonjudgemental Taskforce. Nebulous runs an eco-trouble shooting organisation called K.E.N.T. (which each week stands for something different). Sadly, the organisation is so woefully underfunded, they have to subsidise their work by running a launderette.

    "The best new radio comedy since the Mighty Boosh"

    Download this brilliant comedy whilst it's still relatively unknown then feel smug and superior in a years time when you hear kids in the high street saying 'unlike you proffessor I no longer have the luxury of elbows'.
    This is easily the best new radio comedy the BBC have put out in the last four years. Dr Who, Blake 7 and Red Dwarf fans will love it, but it's just as appealing to regular folks as well. The writing is as sharp as they come and the performances are pitch perfect. You'll listen to this brilliant series again and again.

    "Fantastic . . ."

    Some of the best science-fiction comedy since Red Dwarf. Can't fault it. Still, it's a shame about the Isle of Wight though ... ;-)

    "Buy this, I promise you will not regret it."

    I can't wait for series two.
    My whole family is addicted to this, my daughter quotes it endlessly. My wife hit a patch of ice in the car the other day and all she could do was cry with laughter and say 'I'm drifting.'
    All the characters are so well rounded and so beautifully played that you just can't help but love them, although 'PQ's my favourite, he's the quiet one.'
    This is without doubt the funniest thing I have seen or heard for years.

    I'm Steph. I live in Polegate, Sussex and listen to most of my audiobooks on the bus - makes commuting to work a pleasure!

    "Gets funnier as it goes along"

    I wasn't too impressed by the first episode, but carried on listening and found the series got funnier as it progressed. The characters need time to develop and there are several great running gags to anticipate.
    I have now listened to all the episodes three times and giggle more each time!

    "Genius comedy"

    Nebulous tells the story of KENT(Key Environmental Non-judgement Taskforce - and dry cleaning service) set after the Withering which destroyed the isle of White and caused Rory to loose... well everything.

    If you like daft comedy, recurring gags and pseudo-science with a tongue in cheek lovable aside to those 1950's sci-fi radio dramas, this is for you.

    Mark Gatiss is excellent as ever - its just a shame the second series isn't available.

    If you like HHGTTG - you will love this!

    "This is great fun"
    If you could sum up Nebulous in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, Inventive, the whole thing is just good fun. If you like British humor, and I do, this series is for you.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Well I liked them all but Dr Nebulous he remindes me of the 4th Doctor Who.


    Which character – as performed by Mark Gatiss and David Warner – was your favorite?

    Harry. He didn't have a huge part but it was always funny.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The storylines are inventive and there is lots of humor. They all made me laugh.


    Any additional comments?

    This was well worth the credit. I hope there is a second series.
