Comment by Dirk Maggs

Two 40-part series of three minute episodes - adapted by the very talented comedy writer Paul Powell based on the 2000AD comic book character ‘Judge Dredd’. Hardly subtle stuff but really enjoyable in a blackly humorous way. We could only afford a cast of 5 to play the millions of inhabitants of MegaCity One - AND all the judges. I never want to ask an actor to throw me three voices on the same page again, it was cruelty!


Listening back to these shows some sequences are still not right, sometimes I just can’t get everything louder than everything else no matter how hard I try!


A word for Lorelei King who plays in so many of these shows. Lorelei has a terrific ear for a scene and always comes through with something special. I try to work with lots of different actors but some are so consistently able to deliver that it is tempting to always look for parts for them. So from Lois Lane to Miss Dimple to Judge Hershey I plead guilty to the charge of favouritism but she really is the right girl for the job!
