Judge Death is being held prisoner in one of Mega-City One's
Iso-blocks. A terrorist group have threatened to set him free.
It is down to The city's chief lawman, Judge Dredd, to stop
the parallel universe superfiend from making his escape and
sentencing all living creatures to death...
the second in Big Finish's 2000AD Judge Dredd collection
of audio adventures. The
first adventure, Wanted: Dredd or Alive, was of an
incredibly high standard and Death Trap is every ounce
Gatiss, of The League of Gentlemen fame, guest stars
as Judge Death. And while Toby Longworth's portrayal of Dredd
is wonderful, Gatiss's Death is a little wide of the mark.
He doesn't sound nearly as rasping and evil as the character
is depicted in the original comic strips and he comes across
sounding like an impression of the undercover police officer

links, in the style of a futuristic radio show, help to add
a humorous touch. And Walter the Robot's (now doing community
service) new owner provides additional comic relief.
is a twist towards the end of the episode which sees Death
having an unlikely helper. Oh, and watch out for the Stallone
Judge Dredd movie reference - nice touch.
you are a fan of Judge Dredd then you really should
be collecting this series.
