BBC Audiobooks have announced that the 6-part BBC Radio 4 comedy sci-fi series Nebulous will be available for download from 7th August with a CD release scheduled for 5th February 2007.
The press release describes the title as follows:
“The year is 2099 and Professor Nebulous (Mark Gatiss) is the director of K.E.N.T – the Key Environmental Nonjudgemental Taskforce.
In a post-apocalyptic England, things will never be the same again. Cattle-clasm has wiped out the majority of our livestock, the year has been restructured to include new months such as Octember and Janril, and there’s even a new season, hamble, which falls between spring and summer and is generally drizzly.
Meanwhile, Professor Nebulous – a brilliant, if eccentric eco-conscious scientist – is determined to get Mother Earth back on the right track.
Nebulous runs an eco-troubleshooting organisation called K.E.N.T which is so woefully underfunded they have to subsidise their work by running a launderette.
Nevertheless, Nebulous must pit his wits against whatever challenges the Earth’s distorted ecosystem throws at him – be it sentient dust, killer cacti or ‘garrow’ – a new colour which sends people insane.
However, Nebulous’s work is continually undermined, often by the ineptitude of his own team: the overenthusiastic and under-qualified Paula Breeze; man of action Rory Lawson; and tactical equipment specialist Harry Hayes, who uses a wheelchair.”
Nebulous is written by Graham Duff and stars Mark Gatiss (League of Gentlemen) and David Warner (The Omen, Straw Dogs, Time Bandits) with direction by Nick Briggs (Doctor Who � Dalek Conquests).
The series is available to purchase as download only from digital retailers such as Spokennetwork.co.uk, Audioville.co.uk and Audible.co.uk.
