Big Finish full cast audios - 1.3 Drones
trevor travis
Yeah, not of my favourites, but Orac going to a power trip was interesting, as was Libby taking a swim!
 
Travisina
That was great - thanks for the company, everyone!
See you next week for 'Mirror' at 8pm. I'll amend the time on the Roundup.
My views are my own.

VILA: I'm entitled to my opinion.
AVON: It is your assumption that we are entitled to it as well that is irritating.

"Centero and Horizon..."
They had to do a couple of re-takes during the recording, because Tim pronounced it 'Sentero'. It's an easy mistake to make - I blame Terry Nation!


But it's spelt with a C, not a S! Wink


So is pronounced with a K Pfft


Indeed. C and K have an almost identical phonetic sound, while S is completely different.

Apart from in Centre, Central, Cinammon, Cynic...


Good point Grin Grin

English is so inconsistent!


I've just realised why a new work colleague asked me how I pronounced my name. I assumed the spelling Clare would be pronounced Klare in English, but it could also be pronounced Slare.


I have friends called Clare, Claire and Clair!


Confusing when you're seeing each other, but they've made it easier on you if you all communicating in writing Smile


I was calling my two closest work colleages by their surnames in emails for clarity, till I realised that although they are both Steve, they are also Stephen and Steven, which I decided was a little friendier.

The Libby took a swim- that's a good alternate title for this one. Didn't believe it for a moment, but oh, well. The Drones were a bit annoying too- still it was fun to listen to. See you next time. 'Night.

These "Making Of" features are great - love the cast talking about it!
 
trevor travis
It's funny Sally mentions costumes. I always imagine Jenna in the audios to have the purple leather costume.

As I listen, I find it hard to remember that this is being performed by actors (I do *know* that it isn't a real spaceship that's crashed, and the gnat-drone-body-exploders don't actually exist, I just forget while I'm into the story).

For me it's like having different 'lenses' to watch / listen to things. I can suspend disbelief and enjoy the full magic of the story, while at the same time appreciate the technical way it's put together.


I can remember coming across "The making of..." shows on TV, but never choosing to watch them, as it would destroy the magic. I've only just realised I'd like to know how the "magic" is produced. Ed Bye, the director on Red Dwarf, did a facinating talk yesterday on how he'd directed some of his trickiest scenes e.g. multiple characters (including a hologram) interacting with other versions of themselves and others, while walking across the screen and talking. I'd no idea how complicated TV producing/directing was in the 1980s!

I've just realised I haven't listened to any of the CD extras, where the cast are discussing the show. I've heard little clips, like just now when the story finished, but I've never actually listened to the whole chapters. I really must!

I just to listen because I want to hear from the cast, even more so that one or two aren't around anymore.

See you all at next week's relisten at 8pm, and I'll enjoy listening to the cast in some of their 'Extras' before then. Night.

Be sure to listen to the extras at the end when we get to the full cast stories with Del Grant. Mr. Chadbon mentions a certain person who just happens to be a fan. It had to be pointed out to me but it still shocked me! So don't forget the extras, they are quite fun and informative.
