To tide you over until the next episode arrives, here’s the script from the Christmas episode. As you can see, we stuck almost exactly to the script this time, and took out a lot less than usual…

Dear All,

It is with a heavy heart that I announce that, although you’re all waiting eagerly for tomorrow’s instalment, there will be no January Gloaming. This is because of a couple of things: various people’s illnesses, work commitments, and the fact that I am an utter arse.

Still, do not fear. the cast and crew of In The Gloaming have instead put their 2008 effort, The Meeting, onto Youtube for you instead. Made by Comedybox and guest starring Eastender Michael Greco, The Meeting was the first real creation of the group who now make In The Gloaming, and has not been available on the Internet for the last year or so. There are 8 x 3 min episodes, so you’re still getting about half and hour’s comedy from us this month.

I didn’t decide not to do this month’s Gloaming lightly, but given a choice between producing something sub-standard just so that we wouldn’t have missed a month, or spending the time getting next month’s to be excellent, I chose the latter.

Anyway, here, for your delectation, is The Meeting.

Sweet screams…

The snow’s falling outside my shed, which means it must be time to share our Christmas Special with you. It’s a festive ghost story, and it’s called… The Night Whisperer.

Sweet Screams!

Yesterday, we recorded the Christmas Special for In The Gloaming. We’ve got a stellar cast that includes Zoe S. Battley, Ruth Bratt, Sally Chattaway, Emma Powell, Lizzie Roper, Darren Strange, John Voce & me. It’s an excellent cast, and they were all too brilliant for words yesterday.

Needless to say, I’m hyper-excited about the Christmas episode.

Last month, you may have noticed, the cast was a little Natt-heavy. This was because we had a number of people drop out in the 24 hours before we recorded, so I ended up having to do a lot of things I wouldn’t usually do. Like, you know, acting…

If you haven’t yet listened to Silent As The Grave it’s here and is our nastiest and time-bendiest yet…

The Christmas episode, The Night Whisperers, will be available from the weekend before Christmas, so look out for it then!

For those who may have missed it, and because I’ve only just worked out how to embed audio on this site (Yes, I know), here’s last month’s episode, Dead Skinny, just in time to whet your appetite for this month’s

Silent As The Grave should arrive in your inboxes (inboces?) tomorrow afternoon…

Sweet screams…

(in a non-rude way…)

Yes, it’s done. Our first recording session was today, and all of the voices for October’s podcast have been inscribed onto metal tapes by elves, and are being stored in a magic cavern, as is my understanding. Many thanks to Raoul Brand who beat the elves until they did it right. He really beat them quite hard. Almost unnecessarily hard…

The cast is dreamy, and a nice nod to the glory days of The Meeting (don’t ask – it will take far too long to explain), those shouting in a small room were: Zoe S Battley, Ruth Bratt, Michael Greco, Darren Strange, Mark Talbot,  Nathaniel Tapley, and John Voce.

It was a veritable orgy of vocal-comedy genius, and I felt hugely privileged to sit on the other side of a glass wall and shout at them to do it better. Really, really lovely.

Anyway, I must sleep, for tomorrow we have a heavy day of rending chicken carcasses and throwing things to make sound effects for all of the bits that the actors were to lazy to… well, act.

So, casting is underway and Podcast #1, tentatively titled ‘Dead Skinny’, is beginning to take shape. It’s a gruesome little slice of body-horror in the Cronenberg vein (although not, yet, in any of Cronenberg’s veins).

Tomorrow is talking to more actors, and seeing if I can nab a very special guest star…
