Have a surprise bonus mini-episode of Pratchat! We’ve mentioned Night Terrace a few times, but not gone into too much detail. So, outside of our usual schedule, Liz asks Ben all about this time travel radio comedy series from Splendid Chaps Productions. What’s it about? Who are the main characters? How would they fit into the Discworld? You’ll also get a bit of behind the scenes info and hear some excerpts from the first two seasons. If it sounds good to you, hop on over to the Night Terrace crowdfunding campaign before November 22, and help get a third season made! You’ll hear excerpts from the Night Terrace episodes “Sound & Führer”, “Moving House” (both by John Richards), “Time of Death”, “Ancient History” (both by Ben McKenzie), “Sense & Susceptibility” (also by John Richards) and “The Outsourcing” (by David Ashton). Anastasia Black is played by Jackie Woodburne; Eddie Jones by Ben McKenzie; Sue Denholm by Petra Elliott; the Vraxnols by Toby Truslove and previous Pratchat guest, Cal Wilson (episodes one and three); and Carole by Cate Wolfe. We hope you enjoyed this little diversion! If you want more excerpts and info about Night Terrace, look up the hashtag #NightTerrace on social media, or visit nightterrace.com. If you listen to the series, you may also enjoy the companion podcast On the Terrace.
In this very special On the Terrace, Night Terrace and Neighbours star Jackie Woodburne joins host Vaya Pashos and Night Terrace co-star Ben McKenzie to talk about being Anastasia Black and Susan Kennedy, audio as a medium and how good the food was during recording. (No, seriously.) Plus a few snippets also from co-star Petra Elliott, reporting from off the terrace! As we post this there’s just one week left for the Night Terrace season three Kickstarter campaign. Backing the campaign not only means you can get the full third season at a discount price, but also means that we’ll actually get to make it! Plus of course there are plenty of other exciting rewards you could pick, including some exclusive bonus content. And even if you don’t pledge money to the campaign, sharing the link with anyone you think might be interested helps us out a bunch, too. The campaign ends on November 21, 2019. Night Terrace season three is available to pre-order by pledging to our Kickstarter campaign. The first two seasons will be repeated on BBC Radio 4 Extra in 2020 (dates TBC). You can listen to the very first episode, “Moving House”, via the campaign or at nightterrace.com. If you’re considering buying the first two series, please do so via our crowdfunding campaign!

This is Ben McKenzie Co-Producer of Night Terrace. Night Terrace is an original time travel audio comedy starring Jackie Woodburne as Dr Anastasia Black. Anastasia just wanted a quiet retirement, so she’s not exactly thrilled when her suburban terrace house spontaneously starts to travel through time and space. Even worse, she’s stuck with uninvited houseguests Eddie and Sue. Together they’ll try to get along in the face of alien invasions, hideous monsters, and an inability to put the kettle on without the house appearing somewhere new. But will it ever take them home? Night Terrace is a Splendid Chaps production created by David Ashton, Petra Elliott, Ben McKenzie, John Richards, and Lee Zachariah. There are two seasons of eight 28-minute episodes, which in 2019 had their radio debut on BBC Radio 4 Extra. We’ve also produced numerous shorter mini-episodes and a special episode recorded in front of a live audience. This episode is one of our mini-episodes and it’d called “Habitat of Mushrooms.” In typical Night Terrace style it features our housemates arriving in a very strange place and quickly getting into a lot of trouble. Thanks for listening.
