Set your faces to stunned. Teh Ellards has been billing this as the biggest thing ever for quite some time, and I think he has a point. Chris Barrie has recorded the entire script, stage directions and all, complete with impersonations of the cast, music, sound effects and even storyboards to accompany the audio. And he’s in character as Rimmer, for the first time nearly seven years. Bloody hell.
As has already been speculated over on OD, this could be the start of something massive. How excellent would a series of Who-style audio dramas be? Even if it leads to bog all, it’s still going to be a fantastic extra. Even though most of us are already familiar with the script. Ahem.
The piece was recorded on the 9th May. How the *fuck* did GNP manage to keep it to themselves for two months?
