Customer ReviewsSee All
What a joy to discover this wonderful series! With its wonderfully surreal setting and characters, absurd plot lines and, above all, terrifically delivered, hilarious dialogue, this is, genuinely, far better than anything on television. Oh, the joy of laughing out loud again at a comedy series that actually manages to be funny! My only complaint is, having discovered this, the horror at seeing that the last series ended in 1018. Is this it?! Say it ain’t so, Piffling, say it ain’t so...!!
Everything about this podcast is spot on.
I’m honestly shocked I didn’t come across this at 6pm Radio 4. You’ll laugh the first time you listen, then again when you re-listen and then again as you listen for quotes to populate the letter your angrily writing to the Director General about overlooked radio sitcoms.
Also, I’ve never written a review for anything before so in a very real way they’re changing lives.
Even if they never write another series (which would be heartbreaking) I’m excited to see what’s coming next from these guys: writers and actors alike.
Best podcast ever.
