Love your show

Wish there were more. I've listened to them all.

Vox Populei ,

A mixed bag.

7 out of 10 episodes on this are terrible. Shame on you malcontents! Shame! Shame!

However,

3 out of 10 episodes are really quite startlingly good. Bravo chaps!

Prior to 2010 the BBC used to produce good, honest, often even beautiful shows. Blackadder comes to mind as a gem. But starting in the 2000's, the BBC has lost its shiny "Received Pronunciation" oomphf.

Now it's so downtrodden, pro-regulation, paranoid in tone, and anti-aspirational that it's increasingly unwatchable, and unlistenable.

Actually, I must say, that this really is one of the better modern produces of the BBC and still, so many episodes are just paranoid drivel, and so many are not quintessentially British.

It used to be very British to talk about sad things in an upbeat way.

The BBC is now speaking like the Bitter Britain that bores Boris and not the Britain I love with every bit of my boozy beard, BRIGHT BUSHY-TAILED, curious Britain!

Very sad! I mourn for you trusty, dusty ol' BBC which I loved so much. Here's to hoping the beloved brilliant chaps at the BBC who are not indoctrinated in modern journalist politics bring you back!
