Publisher's Summary

The original six-part BBC Radio 4 comedy sci-fi series starring Mark Gatiss and David Warner.
The year is 2099 and Professor Nebulous (Mark Gatiss, League of Gentlemen) is the director of eco-troubleshooting organisation K.E.N.T. - the Key Environmental Nonjudgemental Taskforce. But it's so under-funded it subsidises its work by running a launderette. And the twintub's malfunctioned. In a post-apocalyptic England, cattle-clasm has wiped out the majority of the livestock, there are new months such as Octember and Janril, and climate change has formed a drizzly new season called Hamble. Nebulous is determined to get Mother Earth back on the right track, nevertheless he must pit his wits against sentient dust, killer cacti, naked aliens and the evil Dr Klench (David Warner, Titanic, Star Trek VI) who's bent on world domination. Can K.E.N.T. save the day before the spin cycle finishes? Nebulous also stars Graham Crowden, Paul Putner and Rosie Cavaliero.

This is great fun

If you could sum up Nebulous in three words, what would they be?

Funny, Inventive, the whole thing is just good fun. If you like British humor, and I do, this series is for you.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Well I liked them all but Dr Nebulous he remindes me of the 4th Doctor Who.

Which character – as performed by Mark Gatiss and David Warner – was your favorite?

Harry. He didn't have a huge part but it was always funny.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The storylines are inventive and there is lots of humor. They all made me laugh.

Any additional comments?

This was well worth the credit. I hope there is a second series.

Please order series 2 and 3 Audible

Would you consider the audio edition of Nebulous to be better than the print version?

I don't know that there is a print version it was a radio show on radio 4 of the BbC

What other book might you compare Nebulous to and why?

Perhaps another radio play which similarly delightfully silly is cabin pressure which is the closest I can come to this.

Which scene was your favorite?

When Paula can't overcome her crush on Professor Nebulous and makes him uncomfortable by kissing his midriff.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

No that kind of radio Play. Humor

Any additional comments?

Please please audible make the next two series available.

The best new radio comedy since the Mighty Boosh

Download this brilliant comedy whilst it's still relatively unknown then feel smug and superior in a years time when you hear kids in the high street saying 'unlike you proffessor I no longer have the luxury of elbows'.
This is easily the best new radio comedy the BBC have put out in the last four years. Dr Who, Blake 7 and Red Dwarf fans will love it, but it's just as appealing to regular folks as well. The writing is as sharp as they come and the performances are pitch perfect. You'll listen to this brilliant series again and again.

Fantastic . . .

Some of the best science-fiction comedy since Red Dwarf. Can't fault it. Still, it's a shame about the Isle of Wight though ... ;-)
