Publisher's Summary

The complete first series of My First Planet - a sitcom set on a shiny new planet, starring Nicholas Lyndhurst, Vicki Pepperdine (Jo Brand's Getting On) & Tom Goodman-Hill (Another Case of Milton Jones)

The story so far: Unfortunately, Burrows the leader of the colony has died on the voyage, so his Number 2, Brian (Nicholas Lyndhurst), is now in charge. He's a nice enough chap, but no alpha male, and his desire to sort things out with a nice friendly meeting infuriates the colony's Chief Physician, Lillian (Vicki Pepperdine), who'd really rather everyone was walking round in tight colour-coded tunics and saluting each other. She's also in charge of Project Adam, the plan to conceive and give birth to the first colony-born baby.

Unfortunately, the two people hand-picked for this purpose - Carol and Richard - were rather fibbing about being a couple, just to get on the trip. Add in an entirely unscrupulous Chief Scientist, Mason, and also Archer, an idiot maintenance man who believes he's an "empath" rather than a plumber, and you’re all set to answer the question: If humankind were to colonize space, is it destined to succumb to self-interest, prejudice, and infighting? (By the way, the answer’s "yes". Sorry.)

In the first episode, it's Day 1 on the colony and they’ve lost the food, the air, the commander and the mood music.Meanwhile, Chief Physician Lillian makes a terrible discovery about Project Adam.…

In episode two, it's Day 7 on the colony, and Mason stirs up an ethical nightmare involving a clone, a murder, and some dreadlocks. Meanwhile, Archer the handyman attempts some repairs on his own head.

Episode three is set on Day 27 and the colonists are torn between Richard’s newsletter and Archer’s hot pants. And which is more dangerous - Brian’s monkey wrench or Lillian’s "vitamin drink"?

And in the last episode of the series, a queue for the loo and a rogue backrub threaten to blow up the colony. And just what is Lillian’s "Special Skill"…?

    "Neat Idea, Disappointing Follow-through"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    It really could have been a neat series--and they did pick up steam towards the end of the season, but a lot of it just fell flat, and was more bizarre than actually funny.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Cabin Pressure! A very funny British radio play series, with amazing voice acting and even better writing. It's also quite heartwarming towards the end.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    All of the actors did a good job; the characters were distinct, and consistent, and none were unpleasant to listen to...except for the flat writing.

    "Awful."
    Any additional comments?

    It's just not funny. The attempts at caricature are very poorly acted, and very superficial. I couldn't listen to it all.

    the preview sample sounded great but unfortunately this was the best bit of the entire first series!

    "Funny, but lacks something"

    I can't put my finger on it, but this comedy just lacks something.



    On the whole it is very enjoyable and amusing especially the empathic plumber who essentially steals the show but some of the writing lets it down. The full cast of well known names are brilliant and produce a well enacted character performance that sucks you into the story.



    I enjoyed it and would definitely get the next series, if there is to be a next series, hopefully by that time it will be a bit more rounded.
