The Re-Making of Danger Mouse

  • The Re-Making of Danger Mouse



Back in the 80s and early 90s there was no contest, he was the greatest, he was fantastic and you had better believe that wherever there was danger he would certainly be there. Now Danger Mouse is back to face not only the dastardly Baron Greenback, but a new generation of would be fans. Remakes are a tricky thing to get right with many failing to find the balance needed to appeal to a new audience whilst also keeping the older fans happy.

However, in spite of the perceived odds the new series has been universally lauded, and like an episode from the show, those odds have been defied and Danger Mouse has emerged triumphant as ever.

We will be joined by the team responsible for this rodent renaisance as they take us behind the scenes for an exclusive look at a yet to be aired episode.

Andrew Burrell

Andrew is a writer, producer, script editor, voice director and very bad voice acting stand-in known for the rebirth of Danger Mouse, Series 4 of live-action drama ‘Wolfblood’ and two series of animation hybrid ‘Strange Hill High’. Not bad for someone who blundered into the TV world via Channel 4’s ‘Shameless’ in his mid-30’s after having various careers including office furniture salesman. What Andrew doesn’t know about four drawer filing cabinets isn’t worth knowing...neither is what he does know.

Ben Ward

Ben is currently the head writer on Horrible Histories and Danger Mouse. He has in the past, been lead writer or co-lead writer on the award winning shows MIHigh, SM:TV Live and Tracy Beaker Returns. During his 20 years as a comedy writer he’s worked on many other programmes both in adult and children’s television from Spitting Image to Peter Rabbit. He’s also a two-time World “Toad in the Hole” Champion, although few people understand just how impressive that is.
