What is Strangeness in Space?

This free-to-download series is written by, and stars, Trev & Simon who for a decade dominated Saturday morning TV with their mad and unpredictable world of comedy, sketches and silly games on BBC1’s Going Live! and Live & Kicking. They Didn’t Do Duvets, or Perms or Discs, but they Did Swing Their Pants!

Now they are two idiots claiming to be Tilbury’s No 1 synth-pop duo Pink Custard;  stuck in Space, orbiting the Planet Mirth.

And with only Sophie, the manager of a NASA Space Centre gift shop, played by Dr Who’s Sophie Aldred (she’s Ace!)… and a computer robot called L.E.M.O.N.  onboard ship with them.

STRANGENESS in SPACE is a comedy sci-fi audio adventure for adults and children alike. It was listed amongst The Guardian’s “50 Podcasts You Need to Hear”. Fans nominated us for three Awards in the Audio Verse Awards: Best Production, Best Actress for Sophie Aldred, and Best Comedy Script for Trevor Neal and Simon Hickson. And we reached No.6 in the iTunes Comedy Chart!


You mean it’s a BBC Radio Thingy?

No – it’s an audio series made by us independently, that you can download from this site, or from iTunes (for Free!) and listen to on any of those many devices we all have nowadays: smartphone, ipad, kindle, computer, mp3 player…

How come it’s FREE?

the series is crowd-funded – it had no commissioning body but kind people heard about it and bought “Perks”. They bought a whole host of memorabilia such as cast signed artwork, or Tee-shirts & badges as well as ‘experiences’ like having their name read out in the series, or an exclusive peek behind the scenes.

Can I still get those things?

yes – anything you buy from our crowd-funding perks will help us cover the costs to keep it online for people to find.

I’d really love to help but I’m not rich?

We have perks to suit all budgets and every single penny helps us get nearer to making more episodes!  But also don’t forget that we don’t have a huge publicity budget so your help spreading the word is invaluable! Even if  you can’t help us fund it, sharing news of it on your own social media pages helps us keep the word moving to new people and makes you a very welcome part of the Mirthling community!

I don’t live in the UK – will that matter?

Not at all! You’ll be able to buy perks from wherever in the universe you are, and we’d find a way to get it to you!
