War of the worlds as written by Monty Python

Light radio SF, very pleasant. Two younger female roles might need a bit more differentiation in pitch, but great cast.

Fun

What made the experience of listening to Welcome to Our Village, Please Invade Carefully: Series 1 the most enjoyable?

I've listened to both series and really enjoyed them. They're funny and well acted, a great listen while in rush hour traffic.

What did you like best about this story?

The performances were great, I laughed out loud a few times.

Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

It's a tie between Lucy and the Computer, they're easily the funniest characters.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I didn't but could have.

Any additional comments?

This is one of my favorite radio comedy series and am hoping for a 3rd series.

It takes a village (to resist alien invasion)

What other book might you compare Welcome to Our Village, Please Invade Carefully: Series 1 to, and why?

It's tempting to compare Welcome To Our Village, Please Invade Carefully with Hitch Hiker's Guide To The Galaxy. HHGTTG would inevitably win and it is probably fair to say that parts of Welcome To Our Village are written in homage - android Ron comes to mind. Still, it's no insult to lose a comedy battle against the late, great Douglas Adams. Welcome To Our Village mostly pokes fun at the preoccupations of rural England: NIMBYism, xenophobia, cosy authoritarianism and (of course) cricket.

What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

My favourite element of the performance is Julian Rhind-Tutt's performance as the ever-so-aggressively reasonable alien leader, Field Commander Uljabaan. I was a little sorry to hear that someone else will play him in the sequel, which was recorded very recently, as Rhind-Tutt wasn't available.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

"They Came From Outer Space. With Spreadsheets."

Any additional comments?

Some have pointed out that the laugh track is a little too loud and can be distracting. In some parts this is unfortunately true. The show is recorded in front of a live audience, so at least it isn't canned laughter.

Brilliantly funny

Really enjoyed this very perceptive views on some of the common irritations of modern life. Would definitely recommend. Cheered me up on a difficult day, will be looking out for the next series.
