Rogue Tyger Show Notes – Lost & Found

It may sound cliche, but it’s true: our shows are made possible by the continuing support of listeners like you.

If you’re able to help us —as little as a dollar a month helps— we share additional content and goodies via our Patreon site every month (with more bonus content as we get more patrons). Here’s a sample of this month’s entry.

Originally a 30-Episode Season

As I’ve mentioned elsewhere, the original idea for Rogue Tyger was to have 30-episode seasons, consisting of six five-part serials.

Having six serials matched one of the models for the Rogue Tyger format, that British show with the guy with the blue box. So when I went to writing, I was thinking of some season-long arcs for Aidan Vosky and Reg Macorum that would pay off by the sixth story. At the same time, I knew enough to suspect that we might want a natural spot to give ourselves more time with post-production, so I had the third serial, “Uninvited Guests” end on what I thought was an appropriate “mid-season cliffhanger” just in case we needed to use it.

As it turned out, this came in handy as a season cliffhanger.

As it happens, you’ll find the plot does kick into another gear with “Lost and Found,” so does work well as a whole new season. But looking forward, I am reworking some of the stories and story breaks for what had been a planned four seasons. I’m going to work to make sure there’s some satisfying arcs within a single three-story season (which I think will be easier as the individual episodes will be expanding to fit the half-hour format).

War of the Worlds, Classic Style!

We had great fun adapting H.G. Wells’ sci-fi classic The War of the Worlds for radio last year, transporting the action from England to the outskirts of Washington, DC and also to the present day with War of the Worlds, 2018.

In fact, many people have adapted it to times and places convenient for them. It’s kind of what they do.

However, having based on our audio version in no small part to the original novel, we really would love to see a version that includes some of the creeping dread (and creeping weeds) of the original novel… set in the original time period.

If you’re like us, take a look at this:

C’mon BBC, make sure not to cut the final valiant act of HMS Thunder Child. We’re so looking forward to it!
