Goosebumps. That is all I have to say about this trailer. I’m really looking forward to the release of Episode 4 of The Minister of Chance.
If you have not yet listened to this completely FREE series, set in the Doctor Who universe, and starring the incredible talent of Julian Wadham, Lauren Crace, Jenny Agutter, Jed Brophy, Paul Darrow, Philip Glenister, Beth Goddard, Tamsin Greig, Peter Guinness, Sylvester McCoy and Paul McGann, you really need to get to it! You can download it directly from The Minister of Chance‘s website, or via iTunes.
In other news, Episode 5 — which will be the final episode for series 1 (Season 1 for us North Americans) — is almost in the can. But, we* still need funds to get it completed. If you can help us reach our goal, donate here and get some really awesome perks in the process.
Also, The Minister of Chance has been nominated for the BBC Audio Drama Awards. The results will be announced at the ceremony on Sunday 26th January if we’ve been successful! Wish us luck!
Finally, The Minister of Chance will be attending its first convention in March – Brit Sci Fi on the weekend of 9 and 10 March 2013 at the Space Centre in Leicester, UK. Paul McGann, Paul Darrow, Julian Wadham, Lauren Crace and Sophie Aldred from the cast, with Dan Freeman (writer/director/producer), Clare Eden (Exec Producer) and Lee Sullivan (illustrator) will be making an appearance.

*I say “we” because by some bizarre and wonderful twist in the fabric of this universe, since I first started to cover The Minister Of Chance two years ago, I’ve somehow become a member of the Minister of Chance crew. In the interest of full disclosure, not only was a character named after me in Episode 3, I also provide online tech support for the production, make the podcast available via iTunes, and provide hosting for the website. Even if Dan and I hadn’t become friends over the last couple years, even if I didn’t work with the production in some way, I’d still be telling you to support this production, just as I have since early 2011.
