Arthur Darvill in Gulliver's Travels

Arthur Darvill will be lending his voice to a new adaptation of Jonathon Swift's Gulliver's Travels for BBC Radio 4.

The Doctor Who actor will feature in three one-hour episodes which tell the story of all four of Gulliver's epic voyages.

Gulliver's exploits in Lilliput have been told many times, but less well-known are his adventures in the other lands.

Brobdingnag, where as a miniature man Gulliver must fight for survival against rats the size of dogs and a dwarf who is 40 foot high. And then onto Laputa and Glubbdubdrib, where Gulliver encounters mad scientists and the ghosts of the great and good. Finally, he lands at The Land of the Houyhnhnms, governed by intelligent and gentle horses, where humans - the Yahoos - are vermin.

Gulliver's Travels is adapted for radio by Matthew Broughton. Other members of the company are Matthew Gravelle, Sam Dale, Bethan Walker, Judith Faultless, Richard Nichols, Chris Pavlo, Claire Cage, Lynne Seymour, Gareth Pierce, Ewan Bailey and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

The three-part series begins airing on BBC Radio 4 from Sunday 5th February at 3.00pm.
