Very good

This is definitely worth listening too, great acting, unusual story, plot could waver a little hence 4 stars.

The Piper

Reasonable idea. Borrow a well known creepy fairytale to discuss how poverty and electronic device dependence is leading society vulnerable to exploitation. However, the script is poorly written with holes that are often so bewildering that any suspension of disbelief is impossible. About the worse BBC drama I’ve listened to.
