About the show

Welcome to 2016. For the past five years the world has become an increasingly unstable place. The threat of war between China and the USA had loomed heavily over the rest of the world. Britain, now a small, insignificant and bankrupt nation, initially, as always, had sided with the USA. But relations quickly broke down beyond repair between the two nations, leaving the UK an isolated and unimportant outcast in world diplomacy.

Faced with two gigantic, power hungry enemies on either side, things go from bad to worse in the UK when an attack on the country’s power and communications leaves its citizens without electricity, television, phone or internet. After nearly a fortnight, and with nothing more than speculation available about who carried out the attack and why, looting and riots spread throughout towns and cities like wildfire.

Rumours of an emergency radio broadcast promising help, information, food and water in the centre of every city sees millions of people on the move as they try to head for safety, hoping that the crisis may be at an end.

In reality, nothing can be further from the truth. In a car park, half way up Falkland Hill in Fife, a group of people who fled from the riot stricken towns below watch out over the river Forth in horror as Edinburgh is blitzed by a missile attack from the sky. The lucky ones are killed by the blasts, but anyone else close enough is subjected to the chemicals unleashed by the explosions. A devastating chemical attack turns ordinary people into bloodthirsty savages, and Scotland as we know it, changes forever.
 Aftermath has a strong cast comprised of stalwarts of the online radio drama community – as well as Hoverson, it boasts Jack Kincaid, Michael Hudson and Neil Colquhoun.  Quite how Cudmore and McLean managed to assemble this cast is anyone’s guess; but the experience proved a pleasurable one.

And now… this is the Aftermath.

Edit: Added the season final, episode 6.

This story had me hooked from the word go so it's a pity episodes have not been more frequent. Nevertheless, the content they do have is excellent and should be checked out!

WOW! Great Radio Drama!

Great acting and good sound...and the most important element, a good story.

I did not have the issue of right then left ear issue. As some conversations were all on the right, then some that went right to left and the left/left....so to me it sounded fine.

    It is annoying how it swaps the left and right ears, apart from that it’s good
