Alice’s Wunderland – the surreal radio sketch show from the mind of Alice Lowe returns next week to Radio 4.
The show is set in the titular Wunderland – the pound shop of magical realms which is home to waifs, stays, ghosts, pensioners and squirrels, all brought to life by Alice and her incredible cast.
That includes TVO regulars Richard Glover, Rachel Stubbings and Clare Thomson, as well as Alan Partridge star Simon Greenall and acting legend Marcia Warren.
Series One aired back in July and August of last year, and we talked to Alice in depth about the show even earlier than that, when the pilot aired in April 2011. You can read our interview again here. This time around, the incredibly in-demand wonder that is Ms Lowe is ridiculously busy, so we’ve not been able to offer you a fresh tease.
However, from what we’ve heard about the new run, and from how much we enjoyed Series One, we’re sure it’s going to be something pretty darn special.
The show airs on BBC Radio 4 at 11pm on Thursday 12th December, and continues until January 2nd. Episodes will be available on iPlayer shortly after transmission, and we’ll provide reminder links when we can.
Though really, nothing will beat wrapping up warm on Thursday night, and taking a trip to a (cheap) magical realm with the rest of us… meet you by the bins at 10:55?
