The Minister of Chance audio drama is being remixed and remastered for re-release as a free podcast in weekly episodes from Monday 12th October 2020.
The Minister of Chance is a fantasy series featuring a cast including Jenny Agutter, Philip Glenister, Sylvester McCoy, Paul McGann and the late Paul Darrow.
In a world far from our own, Ambassador Durian of Sezuan (Paul McGann) is dispatched on a peace mission to the primitive island nation of Tanto, but things take a turn for the sinister. In a nearby Inn, a mysterious stranger (Julian Wadham as the titular Minister) appears, then disappears through a miraculous portal in the forest (he “knows the formula for doors”). The inquisitive teenage barmaid, Kitty (Lauren Crace) follows him, with no shoes and only her superhuman strength to keep her company. Another world awaits, where they will be forced into an alliance to save the Universe, and beyond.
The Minister of Chance will be available weekly in 10 minute episodes from Monday 12th October 2020 on most podcast platforms. It was made as an audio movie, an immersive story told with sound effects and a full orchestral score.
