BBC Three is promising to take viewers into a parallel universe governed not by the laws of nature, but by the laws of comedy and where the special effects of Hollywood are a part of everyday life.
Produced by BBC Vision, The Wrong Door includes a feast of celebrity cameos including appearances by Brian Blessed, Dom Joly and Dr Fox and boasts unimaginable locations and impossible visual effects.
Audiences are asked to prepare themselves for a world where herds of space hoppers and shopping trolleys roam the countryside; robots play tennis; mini-bars come with a helpful mini-barman; magazines come with a free, blow-up boyfriend; and MP3 players generate 3-D popstar holograms and monsters under the bed.
Inhabiting this effects-laden world are the Booze Fairies, the Wizard of Oswestry, the World’s Most Annoying Creature and a love-struck dinosaur called Phillip.
The show is written by Jack Cheshire and Ben Wheatley who also directs.
