Rick Cross What can I say? I adore Tom Baker and Paul Magrs in equal measure, and this is Tom and Paul at their maddest and most brilliant! A phenomenal, unexpected wonderland of laughter and thrills!

alimax Take the names Paul Magrs, Katy Manning and Tom Baker separately and you know you're in for a treat. Put them together and what you have is amazing. Wonderful. As good as you hoped? Beyond brilliant!

    Peevish actors are descending mournfully upon the remote English village of Happenstance for the funeral of TV legend Tom Baker.

    His one-time costar Suzy Goshawk is sucked into a parochial vortex of intrigue involving the quailsome local vicar, Tom's acidulous housekeeper Mrs Frimbly and various other fruminous scumblebums. None of them can agree upon how Tom met his disastrous end, and Suzy is starting to suspect that something murksome and swervish is going on.

    The snow comes down, and Suzy finds herself trapped at Baker's End for Christmas, with all the village's creepy pensioners enslaved by a strange, dancing dragon...and a Sinister Presence lurking on the sidelines.

    Why are old ladies twerking their bottoms outside the post office-cum-mini-mart? Why is the vicar creeping about in the bushes in the dead of night? And why, just when all looks hopeless, does a strange, scobberlotching creature spring into view? Who exactly is the King of Cats in his furry costume and his battered crown?

about

"Beautifully bizarre and laugh-out-loud funny, writer Paul Magrs’ wonderfully baroque dialogue suggests the star himself may have had some input... A riotous, fantastical, absurdist romp... 82-year-old Tom has never sounded more at home than in Baker’s End."

"Dangerously whimsical like an out-of-control merry-go-round, simultaneously fanciful and dark like a children’s story revisited decades later... It’s the story of Tom Baker the person, the delighter in the macabre, playing a fictional version of himself who feels strikingly believable... a dive nose-first into weirdness"

"Baker’s End is indeed weird. It starts off relatively simple enough before going down a Wonderlandian rabbit hole to surreal events, Lewis Carroll style word play and some surprisingly adult humour... an incredibly enjoyable romp... very much a recommended listen"

"Here we have an unfettered journey into his mind that gave me more of a sense of the real Tom Baker than from reading his autobiography... Who is Tom Baker? If you like your audio drama joyful, barmy, magnificent, and with echoes of Boosh, Jabberwocky and the Goons, you may find out."
