     Rigor Mortis sets back in

    General NewsIf you missed it the first time around—and if you're outside of the UK, chances are you did—Peter Davison and Tracy-Ann Oberman's critically acclaimed Radio 4 black comedy, Rigor Mortis, has been getting a second life on Radio 7 this spring.

    Though this notice appears to come too late for hearing most of the series on the BBC's Listen Again service, you can still catch the latest Radio 7 episode if you're quick.

    Just click here to go directly to the episode.

    ''Rigor Mortis'', written by Dead Ringers scribe, Laurence Howarth, is a black comedy recorded live in front of a studio audience. It centers around an English pathology department. It looks for, and frequently finds, the humor in death. (The episode available today, for instance, is the tale of the world's first radio broadcast of a post mortem.) Davison and Oberman play junior medical examiners in the department, each arriving at the profession for wholly different reasons. Davison has always dreamt of being a pathologist and is therefore the geek of the group, while Oberman seems much more casual about her lot in life, perhaps becoming an ME because she didn't have the discipline to become an MD.

    On the airing of its first series in 2003, The Independent, The Sunday Times, and The Observer were unanimous and rather unreserved in their praise for the programme.

    Rigor Mortis sets back in

    Note that as of today, Radio 7 is in the final days of it's rebroadcast (even on its Listen Again service) of series 1. On Thursday, Series 2 begins, which doesn't include Tracy-Ann Oberman. So you only have a few more hours left to see this unusual pairing of new and old Who actors.

    I've literally known savages with better manners.
