P.P.T Week One: The Harry Strange Radio Drama

“Magic and magical people — the ‘unnatural order’ is all around us. There are white witches, black witches, demons, vamps, werewolves, shape shifters, ghosts; it’s a protoplasmic party of creature features out there. But unless you know where to look, you won’t find them. I know where to look.

My name is Harry Strange.”

From their website: " Harry Strange is an award winning radio drama that tells the tale of a private investigator whose beat takes him into the supernatural. Harry's adventures bring him face-to-face with demons, succubi, vampires and all manner of 'unnatural' and the occasional 'natural' evil. "

Harry Strange isn't the most beautifully produced podcast ever, but they seem to be self aware of that. In fact, they seem to play it up a bit with their acting and sound effects. It's often over-the-top and it fits. So well. It has its own style and flair that makes it different from other pods.

Certain aspects of it...the self-awareness, the embracing of it's style, the fact Harry is immortal and has a slew of people who assist him (and whom often end up in danger)...reminds me very much of Doctor Who. Just PI-noir style (with a supernatural bent), and not sci-fi.

While I've made no decisions yet, I think The Harry Strange Radio Drama will survive another week in my personal podcast tournament.
