While reading an article about the series of Ideal that I just watched I saw a mention of another Graham Duff program. It's a radio show called Nebulous and it ran for three series on BBC Radio 4 starting back in 2005. The 18 episodes are all on YouTube. I only listened to the first one and that makes me think I'll like the rest. Beside writing the series Graham Duff acts in the show with a bunch of other interesting actors like Mark Gatiss, Rosie Cavaliero, Matt Wolf, Paul Putner, Julia Dalkin, Graham Crowden and David Warner. Guest stars include Peter Davison, Steve Coogan, Kate O'Mara, Julia Davis and David Tennant. Nicholas Briggs is the director, he's better known for his Doctor Who work. He does a good job of filling the air with sounds and voices.
The series is set in 2099 and the Earth is very different, people are clustered in small areas after a series of disasters have made a lot of the dirt not so good for living. Mark Gatiss plays Professor Buffo Nebulous, he's the head of KENT, the Key Environmental Non-Judgmental Taskforce, and his goal is the make more of the planet inhabitable. It's a bit of a parody of programs like Quatermass, Doctor Who and Red Dwarf. One episode refers to both The Stepford Wives and Jurassic Park. It also reminded me of the Firesign Theater. I found it humorous but reserved. There's some humor in the situations. Though the jokes aren't scattered liberally through the show, the ones that do pop up are pretty good. It's not going to appeal to everyone but people that like Firesign Theater, and the like, might want to give it a go.
