What Others Have Said About ...

 

AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON, 1997:

... Like Dirk Maggs’ previous Radio 1 dramatisations, the pace and production values are simply terrific ...

KEN GARNER, The Express, 7 April 1997

 

... The beast was brought triumphantly back to life ... thanks to expert direction from Dirk Maggs ...

STEPHANIE BILLEN, The Observer, 13 April 1997

 

... the hip language, vivid sound effects, insistent music and Dolby Surround bear witness to Dirk Maggs..

PAUL DONOVAN, Sunday Times 7 April 1997

 

... Dirk Maggs adds new twists and grizzly sounds to John Landis’s movie ... Recommended.

RADIO CHOICE, Daily Mail, 7 April 1997

 

... I thought you did an excellent job - congratulations!

JOHN LANDIS Letter to Dirk, 25 April 1997

INDEPENDENCE DAY UK, 1996:

... Dirk Maggs’ brilliant Independence Day UK is Number one (in the Bookseller Spoken Word Chart), having already become one of the very few spoken word recordings to make the regular album charts

M.J.SIMPSON, SFX Magazine, Christmas 1996 issue

JUDGE DREDD, 1995:

... listening to Dirk Maggs’ award-winning ‘audio movies’ is like hearing sound in colour or watching a Cinemascope film with your eyes shut ...

CHRISTINA HARDYMENT, The Guardian, January 21st 1995

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, 1995:

... Maggs’ forte is more than marshalling the apt accent: he midwives the whole acoustic of American popular culture onto the airwaves, a rich soundtrack, along with lashings of irony. No wonder people so readily compare radio as a medium with film ...

ANNE KARPF, The Guardian, January 21st 1995

 

... Dirk ‘Mr Genius’ Maggs, as Brian May calls him, is Writer Producer Director behind Spider-Man ... Were any Archers fan to tune in, their eyebrows might be raised at the adventure and the ground-breaking effects (and wall-smashing, bomb-exploding effects for that matter)...

NICHOLAS BARBER, Independent on Sunday, 5th February 1995

 

BATMAN KNIGHTFALL, 1994:

... Dirk Maggs, who wrote and produced, threw everything into the pot and stirred vigorously. The result was richly textured, highly flavoursome, original and wonderfully energetic ... Maggs struck just the right balance between Gothic horror, gung-ho heroism and camp humour, and maintained it. This sort of speed and density is all too rare in radio ...

NIGEL ANDREW, Daily Telegraph

... summoned up Gotham’s nocturnal horrors more effectively than the movies...

DAMIAN THOMPSON, Sunday Telegraph

 

THE ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN, 1990-1993:

...Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s sheer quickfire genius in the most sensationally produced ‘comic strip’ ... The Adventures Of Superman...

MAIL ON SUNDAY 1992

 

THE MARX BROTHERS’ FLYWHEEL, SHYSTER & FLYWHEEL, 1990-2:

...for me, the Dirk Maggs version is a flattering improvement...

NAT PERRIN, Creator/Co-writer of the original 1932 Marx Brothers Radio series
