Help Fund Episode 3 Of 'The Minister Of Chance' And Become A Part Of 'Doctor Who' History

Do you want to help fund a piece of superb science-fiction? Do you want to help create a delicious audiodrama, dripping with sound so luscious it seeps from your ears, creating vibrant images within your brain? Do you want to be a part of and own a little piece of the Doctor Who universe? Of course you do!

Radio Static is currently raising funds to create The Minister of Chance Episode 3: Paludin Fields.

If you are not yet familiar with this brilliantly written and superbly produced audiodrama, The Minister Of Chance takes place in the Doctor Who universe. As described on The Minister‘s website:

The Minister of Chance is an audio Science Fiction Fantasy series in the tradition of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop and the best in radiophonics. It’s free, and you get it by subscribing to the podcast.

The Minister, like The Doctor, is a Timelord, first introduced to audiences in the award-winning and record-breaking BBC Doctor Who mini-series Death Comes to Time. He was originally played by Stephen Fry but, as Timelords will, he has now regenerated into Julian Wadham’s more austere and urgent incarnation.


The Minister Of Chance stars:

  1. Julian Wadham as The Minister. Other credits include: The English Patient, The Madness Of King George, War Horse, The Iron Lady and Downton Abbey. (LINKS: IMDB profile | Facebook profile)

It also features:

Originally, new episodes were to be created as funding from the purchase of episodes would allow. Unfortunately, it was not as successful as hoped, which is quite a shame as The Minister Of Chance (@MinisterChance) is unlike anything you’ll ever hear. So, Radio Static decided to make episodes available for the cost of FREE.

Now, Radio Static has created an IndieGoGo campaign to raise $10,000 by March 31, 2012, so that they can produce Episode 3. In exchange for your donations, you will receive a number of really cool perks. These perks include an exclusive t-shirt, the opportunity to win a small speaking part in Episode 3, a personalised voicemail greeting from Paul Darrow or Sylvester McCoy, a signed script, your name listed as a sponsor, and more.

If the above listed cast and perks are not enough to entice you into contributing, I invite you to read my reviews of Episode 1: The Broken World and Episode 2: The Forest Shakes. Also, I invite you to listen to my interviews with Lauren Crace, Sylvester McCoy and writer/director/producer, Dan Freeman. And, obviously, you’ll want to download Episodes 1 and 2 FOR FREE.

Now, what are you waiting for?! Click the clip below and donate! Also, please tell your friends and tell them to tell their friends. It will be a huge shame if more episodes from this brilliant series are not created.
