06 Jun ‘Previously on’…
Please share & boost the signal Mirthlings!
The Strangeness in Space Team are delighted to announce that their next adventure comes out on Sunday 19th June; a date specifically chosen for a reason that will become clear when listeners hear it! Recently featured in The Guardian’s “50 Podcasts You Need To Hear” list, the series follows Doctor Who’s Sophie Aldred and Saturday Morning TV legends Trev & Simon in a hilarious sci-fi comedy audio drama.
Adding to an already impressive list of high profile celebrity cast members, Paterson Joseph guest stars in Episode 4 as Trev, Simon and Sophie remain stuck in space, orbiting the Planet Mirth. “We all thought of Paterson immediately Trev & Simon wrote the role of The Puppymaster”, said producer Clare Eden. “He’s brilliant as Johnson in Peep Show but in so many other productions too. I first saw him at the Royal Shakespeare Company and we’ve all loved his performances since, whether it’s from UK series like Green Wing and Doctor Who; HBO’s The Leftovers or alongside Leonardo DeCaprio in Danny Boyle’s The Beach”.
The latest episode has also been financed in a crowd-funding campaign by its ‘Mirthling’ audience, and will join the previous three episodes on the Strangeness in Space website, and iTunes, as a free-to-download podcast.
We can expect another electro pop classic from Tilbury’s No.1 Synth Pop duo Pink Custard (AKA Trev & Simon); some more daft Thorleigh’s product placement, and the welcome return of cast regulars Doon Mackichan (Toast of London, Smack the Pony) as rambling narrator ‘Bounty Flightingale’ and David Annen as studio announcer ‘Jeremy’, along with Barnaby Edwards as ‘LE.M.O.N’, and Sarah Madigan as ‘M.A.D.I.’
“This episode has proven to be the most complex for sound design so far and Dave Palser has created another brilliant 3D soundscape” said script writers Trev & Simon: “The storyline really asked a lot of him, and yet again he has risen magnificently to the challenge!“
Here’s a ‘previously on’ treat for us from Dave ….
You can download these first three episodes now for FREE from http://strangenessinspace.com/episodes/ with guest stars Rufus Hound, Peter Guinness, Carol Cleveland and Alexei Sayle.
The team are also excited to announce their own live event from 4-7pm on 31st July at the Leicester Square Theatre. “I love that our fans are now coming to see us at Conventions in our Strangeness in Space Tee-shirts and Badges” said Sophie Aldred “and our own event gives us the chance to have some fun with them and show them behind the scenes. We’re so grateful for their help in funding the series and this is a wonderful opportunity to be able to thank them personally”.
