Stunning

This is a brilliant comedy, no two episodes are ever the same. Both the acting and writing is beautiful and very clever.

The comedy is funny and the characters develop during the series.

All in all the podcast puts fun in funerals.

Not Ready to Let This Go

Honestly I need the next season so very much but I’m not ready for it to end

Now look here!

Lovely little gem of a podcast. So good I assumed it must have been picked up by the BBC but no it’s truly independent. A cast of losers who you want to win, a group of winners who are really losers as well, they just don’t know, and a fictional channel island that feels like it’s modelled on Guernsey - faded glory, single track roads that won’t allow a truck bigger than a milk float, never quite achieved its zenith before its fall, and an underground hospital built during WW2. The story gives all of us hope that we can achieve less than we set out to in life, if we really try.
