In episode six of On the Terrace, Vaya chats with Night Terrace head writer John Richards and episode writer Ben McKenzie about the show's sixth episode: "The Last Hunt". Anastasia and Eddie are separated from the house in Australia's distant past, just as they're attacked by a vicious beast!

Breaking Free

We've reached the end of series one of Night Terrace! In this last episode for season one of On the Terrace, host Vaya Pashos talks to John Richards (head writer, producer), Ben McKenzie (producer, Eddie Jones) and David Ashton (audio designer) about the epic conclusion to the first series: "Home". When we last left our heroes, they'd crashed their time and space travelling house into some kind of alien virtual reality disco...thing. And they got themselves ejected. Now, they're split up, and find themselves in an eerie white void - and they're not alone. We finally get a bunch of answers about Sue, the DEPARTMENT and even the origins of Night Terrace itself! But can Anastasia and Eddie survive to make use of this information? Vaya, John, Ben and David talk about the plot, guest star Jane Badler, regular stars Jackie Woodburne and Petra Elliott, psychic igloos and the first series as a whole. We'll be back with season two of On the Terrace when Night Terrace returns to BBC Radio 4 E...

On the Terrace is back! Join host Vaya Pashos and writer, star and producer of Night Terrace, Ben McKenzie, as we kick off with a chat about the series two opener, "Sense & Susceptibility"! Anastasia Black is still travelling through time and space in her house "Night Terrace", accompanied by hapless idiot Eddie Jones and new housemate Sue, who once spied on them for the DEPARTMENT. They're free of surveillance now - but their adventures have stalled, as the house can't seem to land anywhere except 1955 London. The answer to why seems hidden in the most unlikely of places: a studio deep inside BBC Broadcasting House... Vaya and Ben talk about making a second series, Australian accents, meeting Jackie Woodburne, The Archers and more - including this episode's stellar guest cast, which includes Colette Mann (Neighbours), Gary Russell (The Famous Five), Ian Smith (Neighbours), Louise Jameson (Doctor Who) and John Clarke (Clarke & Dawe, The Games).
