Clare, Sophie, Trev and Simon went to Manchester University together to study drama. Now, decades later, they've teamed up again to bring us Strangeness In Space.
Trev & Simon: Their multitude of character creations on 1980s and 1990s Saturday morning shows Going Live! and Live & Kicking became legends, whether it was Don & Dougie Draper ("We Don't Do Duvets"); Ken & Eddie Kennedy; the Barbers ("We Don't Do Perms"); or The Singing Corner ("Swing your Pants"). Since then they've continued to work both together and separately, as writers and performers, in adult and children's TV.
Sophie Aldred: Sophie played the role of Ace, companion to the Seventh Doctor in Doctor Who, from 1987-1989. Since then she's worked on a variety of TV shows and her extensive voice work also includes animated programmes such as Dennis & Gnasher.
Clare Eden (Producer): Clare worked for many years as an Agent. She now works in an eclectic variety of related areas; as consultant to freelancers; running social media pages for clients, and as administrator of the John Thaw Foundation.
