Few have noticed it's been 1952 for the past 65 years. Meet Professor Quanderhorn; a brilliant, maverick scientific genius who has absolutely no moral compass. With his Dangerous Giant Space Laser, High Rise Farm, Invisible Robot and Fleet of Monkey-driven Lorries, he's not afraid to push the boundaries of science to their very limit. Even when it's clearly insane to keep pushing. Despite the fact he's saved the world from several Martian invasions, the attacks of the Mole People, the Troglodyte Shape-shifters and the Beatniks from Under the Sea, plus countless other sinister phenomena which threatened to rend the very fabric of reality, the Government would like to close him down. Why? Because they're terrified of him. Of his reality-warping experiments, of the mysterious button on his desk which he's constantly threatening to press. Of the unearthly secret locked in his cellar. And yet they're even more terrified it might stop being 1952 and they'll be out of power.

    England 1952 (it's been 1952 for the past 66 years but, this being England, no one likes to say anything), Professor Quanderhorn (think Quatermass crossed with a mad scientist with no morals whatsoever) and his team (consisting of his son Troy, half human/half insect and a major breakthrough in "artificial stupidity"; Chief Scientific Consultant Dr Gemini Janusson, the logical half of her brain is powered by clockwork (if you see her right ear begin to rotate, steer clear!); Guuurk, a hostage fr England 1952 (it's been 1952 for the past 66 years but, this being England, no one likes to say anything), Professor Quanderhorn (think Quatermass crossed with a mad scientist with no morals whatsoever) and his team (consisting of his son Troy, half human/half insect and a major breakthrough in "artificial stupidity"; Chief Scientific Consultant Dr Gemini Janusson, the logical half of her brain is powered by clockwork (if you see her right ear begin to rotate, steer clear!); Guuurk, a hostage from the last Martian invasion and who's more interested in getting his leg over than furthering his home planet's invasion plans; Janitor/factotum Jenkins, who's clearly known Quanderhorn for a while and may be more than he appears, and, last but not least, Brian Nylon, test pilot and recovering amnesiac for whom, after the first thing he has to do after he wakes with no memory is to participate in the destruction of a giant broccoli monster that turned out to be a colleague, go from bad to worse) fight to protect earth from unearthly disasters; a lot of which caused by Quanderhorn himself. Utterly bonkers and brilliantly hilarious (highly recommend you listen to the accompanying BBC Radio 4 series as well! At the time of writing this review, episode 2 is due to air July 2nd 11:30 am on BBC Radio 4), if you love Red Dwarf and Hitchhiker's and/or retro sci-fi in general, there's a good chance you'll love Quanderhorn!

    I was introduced to Rob Grant in the early 90s through a PBS broadcast of Red Dwarf. He continues his zaniness with this wonderful adaptation of the BBC 4 radio series by the same name. The story finds our heroes (?) stranded in 1952 England, which has a bad habit of repeating itself, wherein they embark on a variety of madcap adventures to save the world, or at least themselves.

    Grant and Marshall have created an utterly bonkers, surreal tale that at its core has an abundance of heart, and with an ending that completely blindsided me it’s a worthy read for fans of the god that is Douglas Adams. Brilliantly written and surprisingly addictive, this is great stuff with a narrative that keeps you equally perplexed and amused throughout.
