Strangeness in Space Is Like A Strange Dream I Once Had

strangeA dream that 1980s Saturday morning TV comedians Trevor and Simon teamed up with Ace from Doctor Who and made a Scifi Comedy.

Well I wish it was my dream, but this new project between the pant swinging duo that don’t do duvets (real names Trevor Neal and Simon Hickson), the ever gorgeous Sophie Aldred and the amazingly talented Clare Eden (producer of crowd funded Minister Of Chance, Doctor Who spin off audio).

Even the logo and associated comic book artwork is pure brilliance created by Lee Sullivan (top comic book artist).

Today they announced the fact Rufus Hound (various comedy panel shows) and Doon Mackichan (great actress) are to be involved the dream team got stronger.

Trev, Simon and Sophie are unwittingly rocketed into the extraordinary, surreal world of space! They’re racing into the future with a foot in the past (the nostalgic 1980s to be precise). Along the way, fuelled by a diet of indigestible powdered space food, they will encounter a whole host of unusual space dwellers and aliens, all played by an exciting parade of cult actors and celebrities, in as many episodes as we can fund through this campaign with your help!

They’ll bump into the flocking Featherheads, or encounter the hairy scary Rhinocerbikers; shake hands with the sinister Dr Scarifium or be shook up by a Space Ghost!

Currently the project is over the 2/3 mark of its ambitious £15,000 crowdfunding target. Check it out over on Kickstarter or on the project’s official page http://strangenessinspace.com/
