Dr Who and the Starship of MadnessOfficial Website!

Suffering Shoggoths! The Roaring Twenties have just begun! Flappers! Gin joints! Deep Ones? The Doctor joins forces with H.P. Lovecraft to investigate attacks in Boston by monstrous entities, and the eccentric Professor Whiteman who appears to be behind it all! What is the secret of the Professor’s amazing chair that can seemingly cure the insane? What is “Miskatonic University”? What will happen to the world when C’thulhu rises? A Post-Meridian Radio Players‘ live performance show, written and directed by Alicia E. Goranson.

…the whole thing was hilarious. I’m a pretty casual Dr. Who fan, but I still got all of the jokes, and the Lovecraft interludes were a nice touch.” – The Boston Phoenix, 1/20/11

I saw this group at Arisia and they were incredible, very talented. I highly recommend you go. How can you beat seeing a live Doctor Who radio story!?” – Toasterlabs
