Sci-fi comedy about the bizarre city of Undone - a weird parallel version of London.
Edna Turner has moved to London to start a new job at entertainment magazine Get Out! When she arrives, she meets the strange Tankerton Slopes, who claims to come from a parallel version of London known as 'Undone'. Undone is 'where the weirdness comes from': where you can find pet tricks shows, medication designed to make you paranoid and the Undone delicacy ‘troubled eggs’. Weird things flow into London, and mundane things flow into Undone, making them the peculiar places they are.
Tankerton offers Edna the task of patrolling the gaps between the cities: finding anyone from Undone who is in London and bringing them back. Because if an ‘Undoner’ stays in London for too long, things become very weird indeed....
With a cast including Alex Tregear, Ben Moor, Kevin Eldon, Tim Key, Emma Kennedy and Al Murray, this sci-fi comedy will take you to a dimension just beyond normal logic.

a love letter to Londom
it hurt me to hear others bash this cute little series. it's simple and funny and an easy listen. it is a bit dreamy and 'look inside yourself' but that's what made it good...to me anyway.
I'm going to listen again.
Incredibly poorly written, chock full of awful non sequiturs, inconsistent narrative and horribly clunky plot devices, badly acted and produced, I gave up after two and a half episodes. Just *terrible*.

So good I bought it twice
I loved this series when it was on the radio and then when I found it had been released on Audible a few years back I joined Audible in order to buy and own them. Back then they were being sold individually and I got all three.
Now it has been re-released as an all in one and I have upgraded to the complete series so I can have them all in one place.
I loved Sarah Solemani in the first series as Edna and to my surprise I loved Alex Tregear as Edna in the second and third series.
The writing in this series is perfect for me there are so many levels of humour and every time I listen to it (and that's been often) I find something new to enjoy. Ben Moor's voice as Tankerton Slopes is a joy to listen to and I have to admit to having a bit of a crush on his voice.
Generally this is fun and a much underrated multi-verse romp.

I wanted to like it...
Few things are as glorious as a good radio comedy but this isn’t actually funny, it’s just odd but in this case that’s really not the same thing.
I found I was having to force myself to listen to it as it couldn’t keep my attention at all, it’s a story that’s been done before ( a place like this but different, reachable by only a few and where everything’s just slightly stranger ) but honestly it’s been done much better than this!
Please Audible, stop raking up every random bbc radio play and asking people to pay for them!
