Twitter rumour has it that Julian has just recorded a pilot for Radio 2 alongside Peter Davison and Katherine (IT Crowd)Parkinson ). Currently expected to air on 5th July on Radio 2 so keep those ears peeled....

Really enjoyed it. What an incredibly well spoken alien! Julian at his comedic best. :clap:

Cello, you are keeping us on our toes!

The final recordings for the series were last night, and having been to all of them, I can report that we are in for a treat! Hattie Moran has replaced Katherine Parkinson for the series, but the rest of the cast was largely unchanged. Julian had a lot of fun with his mildly incompetent baddie role and as sfx magazine reported from the pilot he still 'steals the show as the villainous Uljabaan, playing him with a charming mixture of bemusement and mild depression'. Is it wrong that I am sort of hoping that the aliens win?

The series starts on 7th March on radio 2 and there are 4 episodes to look out for...

I have to agree ..JRT definitely steals the show, & he is certainly THE most charming alien I've ever come into contact with! :swoon:

Set your recorders ladies.. 7 March Radio 2 at 21.30. There are 4 x 30 min episodes. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01r0fv7
For those who know me, I particularly enjoyed the 'cricket match' episode & exchanged a couple of amused/meaningful glances from Julian at the recording. :wink:

Really hope that will be another series...or two!

New series of WTOVPIC recording soon, but sadly without JRT it seems. :( :( Guess he's still in Oz :?:
