New Radio 4 comedy with Mark Gatiss and David Warner.

Starting this Thursday at 11pm on Radio 4 is a new futuristic comedy written by Graham Duff (Dr Terrible's House Of Horrible) and starring Mark Gatiss (League of Gentleman) and David Warner (Star Trek).

"The year is 2099 and, in a post-apocalyptic England, things will never be the same again. Cattle-clasm has wiped out the majority of the livestock, the year has been restructured to include new months such as Octember and Janril, and there's even a new season: Hamble, which falls between spring and summer and is generally drizzly.

Professor Nebulous (Mark Gatiss), a brilliant, if eccentric eco-conscious scientist, is determined to get Mother Earth back on the right track. Nebulous runs an eco-troubleshooting organisation called K.E.N.T., but sadly it's so woefully under-funded that they have to subsidise their work by running a launderette."

Nebulous also stars Graham Crowden, Paul Putner, Rosie Cavaliero, Julia Dalkin, Matt Wolf and Nick Briggs.
