Presented by Scott Turnbull

Time is running out for Detective Charlie SMOG. As he falls from the Swallow Hotel in Stockton High Street he considers love, life and whether he left £4.50 out for the window cleaner. Meanwhile, down below in Teesside 2049 a supernatural fog has descended and things are getting weird. Even weirder than usual… 

Twin Peaks meets The League of Gentlemen inTales from The SMOG, an absurd, sci-fi comedy-noir with live animation and spooky stories. And a multi-dimensional alien invasion that will make your eyes water and your nose bleed.
