    Simply not cricket

    How on earth did Adam manage to injure his finger so badly while gardening? Will Bob work out where to stick his plug? How many actors that Adam hasn't heard of will Bob name-drop this week?
    To find out (spoiler – the answer to the last question is quite a lot) listen to the latest episode with Adam Croft and Robert Daws.
    Adam tells us all about a survey in The Guardian looking into reading habits during lockdown (another spoiler – crime fiction fares well), Bob recommends a David Mark book and did Agatha Christie 'borrow' the idea for The Murder of Roger Ackroyd from a Norwegian author?
    We also get to hear a little insight into how radio dramas use coconuts as sound effects, while Bob tries to figure out which factor sun cream he should put on for this week's sunbathing sessions.

    Why don't we ring nanny?

    Why don't we ring nanny?

    Will Adam cope with an unexpected visitor in his studio? How is his tan coming along with this nice weather during lockdown? And just how loud are the birds in Bob's garden?
    Listen to the latest episode to hear Adam Croft and Robert Daws discuss all of the above.
    They discuss books by Sophie Hannah and Kate Atkinson, Adam fills us in on The Times' ten best crime novels by women since 2000, Bob recommends the TV show 'Blood' (again) and also reveals his 'accomplished' acting style.
    Viewers on Patreon will get an exclusive peek at both Bob's garden and his lovely painted shed, while Adam gives us a lesson on the Icelandic naming culture.

    Mosquito threatening shrub

    Mosquito threatening shrub

    Is Adam still back to front? Has Bob still got the covids? And just how good is their Ant & Dec impression?
    Join Adam Croft and Robert Daws in the latest episode for all this and more.
    They discuss Theresa Talbot’s new podcast, Adam has ten facts about one of the original four ‘queens of crime’ Dame Ngaio (you’ll never guess what type of shrub she’s named after), Bob recommends a couple of TV shows and we hear about Adam’s Indian magazine reading habits.
    Viewers on Patreon will also get to see Adam playing with his funky new graphics (we really should rename it Ooh Matreon), while Bob realises he hasn’t name-dropped in a few episodes and attempts to make up for it.

    Cakes and ale

    Have we discovered the next Tiger King? Does Bob prefer a whodunnit, a howdunnit or a howwilltheydoit? And do you want to hear Adam mangle some French? 
    Robert Daws and Adam Croft explore these questions in the latest episode. (And if your answer to the last question is anything other than an emphatic yes, then you’re listening to the wrong show.)
    They discuss Peter May’s rediscovered prophetic novel Lockdown, Scandi-noir Twin, 
    Agatha Christie TV adaptations, why neither of them has watched Tiger King and a pharmacy-based true crime that will undoubtedly be heading to your screens soon.
    You will also hear why Bob doesn’t want any lockdown drama and a big secret that Adam has been keeping from us.

    Turn those birds down

    Turn those birds down

    Can you talk about Killing Eve without having seen it? Is COVID-19 ruining fiction writing? And is there anyone Michael Sheen can’t act like?
    Thank Christie Bob is back – and feeling well enough to tackle these questions with Adam. 
    They discuss Quiz, Killing Eve (well, sort of), how coronavirus is changing fiction writing, lockdown with Lynda La Plante, what they’ve both been reading and the fallout of episode 100. 
    You will also hear Bob waxing philosophical and Adam fessing up to actually watching a TV show as it airs.

Loving these and highly recommend👍🏼

Bzcommuter ,

Super Partners in Crime!

Absolutely loving these podcasts! Found them a month ago having never listened to any podcasts before! Great interviews, especially enjoy those with crime authors. Big problem with them is...my ‘To read’ list is now bursting at the seams! So many books I want to read now including Adam’s and Robert’s books of course! Loving the chit chatting too keeping it real, what you’ve been up to, reading and watching. 100% recommend these!
