The best thing radio 4 never commissioned

Oh so funny
Oh so dry
And oh so human
Worth all of your time.

Made me snort-laugh. Unattractively. A lot.

I don’t know if binge-listening is a thing, but if it is, that’s what I did with Wooden Overcoats - all three seasons in under five days. Absolutely loved it, perfect dry humour. I live in hope of a fourth season.

An Absolute Treasure!

The performances from the entire cast are wonderful, and both larger than life and also incredibly genuine and truthful. The writing is clever, witty and heartfelt, and has on multiple occasions left me tearing up or howling with laughter.

I discovered this podcast late last year (2018) and my only regret is that I didn't find it sooner! Completely hooked from the start, I sailed through all 3 Seasons, and all the extras, and now I am desperate for more! I sincerely hope the team will be making future seasons as the stories of Pifflingvale are not done yet!

If you listen to one new podcast this year, make it "Wooden Overcoats"! Enjoy yourselves!
