When he’s not making odd noises (he calls it sound design) for Big Finish Productions, Martin Montague is busy producing a brand new BBC Radio panel show called Bad Language (don’t worry – it’s good clean fun!). Recording takes place in Glasgow next week and audience tickets are free! Host Richard Herring (who also appeared in Big Finish’s Doctor Who: Real Time) asks the question, 'We all speak English, but do we understand each other?' as Scotland’s Des Clarke and Ireland’s Keith Farnan go head to head to prove who has the superior command of the English language.
Together with special guests, they compete over five rounds to see who best understands dialect, slang and colloquialisms from Scotland, Ireland and the rest of the English speaking world. Through comedy debate and banter they’ll be celebrating language, inventing new terms for those currently-nameless-but-irritating things. And who knows, they might offer some surprising facts along the way!
Producer Martin Montague says, “We’re recording two shows per night at the CCA in Glasgow next week: Tuesday 4th June, Wednesday 5th June and Friday 7th June – at 7pm and 8.30pm. You can come to as many shows as you like – and tickets are free! Did I mention that already?”

Special guests confirmed are Eleanor Tiernan, Jarred Christmas, Mark Nelson, Micky Bartlett, Aisling Bea, Diarmuid Corr, Jo Caulfield, Susan Calman and Jarlath Regan!
We head into the weekend with another interview from the incredibly busy Toby Hadoke, who goes to the pub with a Doctor Who actor. Yes, it's a tough life, tracking down someone attached to every Doctor Who story as part of the 50th Anniversary...
