It's raining blood on the village of Happenstance.
As the end of summer beckons, the local folk are planning the festival of Tatty Bogle. Hideous scarecrows are appearing all over the place, and almost everyone is behaving as if they're fudgeknocking bananas. Retired TV star Tom Baker is in the garden making friends with cabbages (especially Eric), and Mrs Frimbly is up to curious, malinky deeds of her own.
Before the festival is over there'll be ritual sacrifice, a nasty homunculus and an almighty ruckus in the front parlour. But that's not all. Tom has had a word with the Ferryman, and it's all aboard the ferryboat as it glides through the kinching morts of midnight....
We're all going to hell. And it looks a lot like Middlesbrough.
Baker's End: Tatty Bogle is the third episode of the critically acclaimed audio series starring ex-Timelord Tom Baker as himself, alongside former Doctor Who companion Katy Manning and Susan Jameson, who played opposite Tom in the AudioGo Doctor Who audio series.
"Susan Jameson, Manning and Baker extract every ounce of (melo)drama from each scene...utterly mad, but great fun." (9/10, Sci-Fi Bulletin)
"Paul Magrs has much to be proud of in this fabulously creative tale.... The Baker's End series may just be the maddest thing to come to audio this millennium." (9/10, Starburst Magazine)
"The splattiest, maddest and baddest Baker's End of them all!.... Tom Baker unleashed is a magnificent thing indeed. Glorious. Utterly, frimblewhackingly glorious." ( Mass Movement Magazine)

Bafflegab + Paul Magrs = Pure Joy
Any additional comments?
Bafflegab have produced some of the very best audio dramas (The Scarifyers) and once again they have teamed up with writer Paul Magrs (The Brenda and Effie Mysteries) for Baker’s End.
The story starts when Suzy Goshawk (narrator + played by Katy Manning) travels to Happenstance for Tom Baker’s funeral (played by himself), but not all as it seems.
Some stories are predictable, this is not. It’s bonkers and a highly enjoyable listen.
Episode 01 - King of Cats
Episode 02 - Gobbleknoll Hall
Episode 03 - Tatty Bogle
Only three episodes have been produced so far, but I do hope the saga of Baker’s End continues……..

This one is even stranger, loonier and operatic, a conflagration of iconic themes with Mr Magrs own brand of twisty, helter-skelter brio to stir it all up in a big bucket! Bravo.
Have listened to the whole Bakers End series and can only hope there will be more as they are riotous and totally nuts. I can't recommend these playlets - as that is what they are, enough. For light-hearted enjoyment and a mind-boggling vocabulary you'll want to try out yourself they are outstanding.
