Welcome back to From The Archives, where we trawl through my work on Radio Warwick and bring you the best bits of my student writings. And this week, we have something very special.
Dylan Morgan and Richard Straker, whom you'll hear next week. He is essentially my impression of Peter Sellers playing the title character in Stanley Kubrick's seminal black comedy Dr. Strangelove. Specifically, there's a moment towards the end of the film where Strangelove is laying out his plans for a new Aryan society living down the deepest mineshafts in America, involving the line: "Animals could be reared and SLAUGHTERED!". I loved the idea of a character who was refined and respectable on the outside, but with manic or insane tendencies bursting to the surface. I wondered how it would be to change the emphases for comic effect, and Tom and I worked out the rest.
P.S. The fanart of Dr. Hans Battenberg was drawn by Tom's girlfriend, Lingyu Zhuang. You'll be seeing more of that as well :)
