The Audio Drama Ratings System

| January 31, 2010

After some long thought and a whole lot of input from a lot of special people and with the kind indulgence of Jeremy over at Audio Drama Directory we are proud to introduce the Audio Drama Ratings System!

Either the Drapes Go Or I Do

… Oscar Wilde’s famous last quote still sticks in my head often. Wilde is one of my favourite writers if I had to narrow down to five, and its exciting when any one does his work. Usually “The Importance of Being Earnest” is as popular to do in audio drama worlds as “A Christmas Carol” […]

The Doctor of course! If you’ve been living under a rock you’ve missed the leaving of the tenth incarnation of everyone’s favourite Time Lord. David Tennant after a lease far too short on BBC’s Doctor Who has moved on hopefully to some other green pastures. As the world awaits to see if Eleven will be […]
