    Story
    "It takes a village (to resist alien invasion)"
    What other book might you compare Welcome to Our Village, Please Invade Carefully: Series 1 to, and why?

    It's tempting to compare Welcome To Our Village, Please Invade Carefully with Hitch Hiker's Guide To The Galaxy. HHGTTG would inevitably win and it is probably fair to say that parts of Welcome To Our Village are written in homage - android Ron comes to mind. Still, it's no insult to lose a comedy battle against the late, great Douglas Adams. Welcome To Our Village mostly pokes fun at the preoccupations of rural England: NIMBYism, xenophobia, cosy authoritarianism and (of course) cricket.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    My favourite element of the performance is Julian Rhind-Tutt's performance as the ever-so-aggressively reasonable alien leader, Field Commander Uljabaan. I was a little sorry to hear that someone else will play him in the sequel, which was recorded very recently, as Rhind-Tutt wasn't available.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "They Came From Outer Space. With Spreadsheets."


    Any additional comments?

    Some have pointed out that the laugh track is a little too loud and can be distracting. In some parts this is unfortunately true. The show is recorded in front of a live audience, so at least it isn't canned laughter.

    "Sadly, a bit of a let down"
    Would you try another book written by Eddie Robson or narrated by the narrators?

    Maybe - but it wouldn't be top of my list. The dramatisation was good, but the underlying story let it down a bit (but I might be a little bit mean - perhaps it will improve if I re-listen to it again).


    Would you be willing to try another book from Eddie Robson? Why or why not?

    Maybe - but it wouldn't be top of my list.
