Strangeness in Space
a FREE comedy audio adventure for anyone aged 8 to 80 to enjoy together. The six-part series is written by, and starring, Saturday morning TV legends Trev and Simon with Sophie Aldred (Ace in Dr Who). Join them as 'Trev' & 'Simon', (aka Pink Custard, the UK's No1 synth pop duo) & Space Centre Shop Manager 'Sophie' find themselves accidentally stuck in Space orbiting the Planet Mirth.
The series was crowd-funded by fans and reached no6 in the iTunes Comedy chart as well as being nominated for the Audio Verse Awards. We were also proud to be listed in The Guardian's '50 Podcasts You Need To Hear'.
Fans bought a wide variety of perks ranging from Trev & Simon or Sophie signed memorabilia and photographs, or Tee-shirts and Beanies, to CDs, Bags and Badges. Or unusual experiences such as having their name mentioned in the series, or commissioning a page of the script! There are still merchandise items available here which help us afford to keep the series online and Free.
