Imagining a body-free future for humanity. The concept of 2010 Space Commander! came about after hours of musings on the future of the planet and us being on it – taking in to account what we already know about climate change, available resources and population expansion. Our bodies cannot easily explore space, so why not get rid of them?
Time Travel Inc. Science Fiction audio comedy. You cannot change anything that has happened. That’s not a threat or a challenge, it’s a fact. Believe me, people have tried. If you do try to stop something that you know happens, then something will go wrong, possibly resulting in a personal injury. You should be travelling purely as an observer, nothing more. Do you understand?
Jodi Taylor’s exciting sci-fi leap into history, masterfully adapted by Marty Ross. Featuring Gemma Whelan (Game of Thrones). Ben Miles (The Crown), Jonathan Bailey (Broadchurch), and Zara Ramm. Directed by David Beck.
