Acting on the radio is challenging, inspiring, delicate and always a privilege.

NEBULOUS: US AND PHLEGM (HOLOFILE 703)

Nebulous was a BBC Radio 4 Comedy series that was broadcast in three sets of six episodes each from 2005 - 2008. 

The original run of the show was on Thursday evenings from 11:00 - 11:30 pm. The series was written by Graham Duff and produced by Ted Dowd for Baby Cow Productions.

The episodes were recorded at Moat Studios in London, which is not surprising since Nick Briggs, the director, would be right at home there as this is where all the Big Finish audios are recorded.

The first episode was broadcast in January 2005 and series two started in April 2006. 

David Tennant made a guest appearance, as Doctor Beep,  in the series three episode called 'Us and Phlegm', which went out on June 19, 2008.

The episode David appears in was recorded in April 2008. The BBC website described the episode: "With a 99 per cent sick workforce, the Professor faces some very snotty aliens."

The director was Nicholas Briggs, who is well know in Doctor Who circles for his work in many Big Finish stories, he wrote and directed the Unbound story Exile and Dalek Empire III in which David appears.

He provides the voices of the Daleks, Cybermen and other characters since the series returned to the BBC in 2005.

Briggs did all of the sound for the nebulous series and the editing.

Typically each episode was recorded in a day, including read-through and rehearsal.

The BBC's website describes the show: "Like some strange collision of Doctor Who, Quatermass and Hitch Hiker's Guide To The Galaxy, series two beams back in with more monsters, more mayhem and more bizarre and inventive plots."

Synopsis: The year is 2099. Professor Nebulous returns with his team of inept eco-trouble shooters in the third series of this hilarious sci-fi sit com.

NEBULOUS 3 continues the adventures of K.E.N.T. - the Key Environmental Non-Judgemental Taskforce in their struggle against alien threat and ecological disaster.

Mark Gatiss and David Tennant have worked together many times, starting in 2000 when they both appeared in the first episode of 'Randall and Hopkirk(Deceased)' called Drop Dead and they shared the big screen together in Bright Young Things in 2003.

Then again in 2003 with the Big Finish audio Sympathy For The Devil. Mark adapted the radio play The Wooden Overcoat that David The Lazarus Experiment together. 

He also does the voice of one of the Scottish hunters in Free Jimmy with David and if that wasn't enough Mark also wrote the Doctor Who episode Idiot's Lantern!!
