“I think I can make the noise of a door creaking open with my hair…”
Bit of a weird one for you this week as The Ood Cast go back to basics. Four people, four microphones, in a room, talking. Yes, this is the Oods unplugged and unhinged without the aid of a script or a safety net.
(And because we recorded it three weeks ago we’re also woefully out of date when it comes to details of Season 6 so definitely no spoilers)
There’s even less cohesion than usual as Andy, Laura, Alpha and Sigma jump from one topic to the next with the linguistic grace of a herd of buffalos with big feet dancing swan lake on a minefield. Comments that have no immediate relevance, a review of Space & Time, hysteria, memoirs, podcest and a very special birthday wish all make an appearance.
And, okay, there are a few short sketches about the Brigadier and a cover of a song by the lovely folk at Radio Rassilon too.
But mostly it’s tales told by idiots, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing…
We wouldn’t have it any other way.
