  • "The brilliance continues..."

    Story

    Ed Reardon's Week continues where it left off at the end of series two. and is certainly as brilliant as the first two series.

    The now established characters continue to entertain with entertaining snippets of their back stories adding flesh to the bones.

    Sally Hawkins returns to the role of Ping, playing her with a straighter bat than Barunka O'Shaughnessy did in series 2.

    Episode three is a particular gem thanks to the return of Bert Wang (played by Geoff McGivern). Philip Jackson (as Jaz Milvane) oozes self-assurance and the chippy banter between Jaz and Ed is very clever.

    It's funny, it's clever and it's acerbic.

    It's brilliant.

    Ed Reardon (Christopher Douglas) - author, pipe smoker, fare-dodger, and master of the abusive email - returns for a third series. In these six episodes, Ed finds his literary juices are flowing after a new commission, and a visit by his father brings thoughts of inheritance to the misanthropic writer's mind. As well as venting his spleen writing corporate scripts, Ed also uses his skills to update obituaries - and produces a savage profile of an old friend.

    I'm delighted to say that Ed Reardon's Week series 2 is as thoroughly enjoyable as the fantastic series 1.

    The characters are more established and the blend is very strong. The cast remains mainly the same with the exception of Barunka O'Shaughnessy who is parachuted into Ping's shoes and really takes the character up a notch or two.

    Ed's life continues to struggle along from one disaster to another with a couple of moments to give him something to smile about.

    His banter with Jaz Milvane (played by Philip Jackson) just gets better and better.

    I'm becoming a big Ed Reardon fan. Where can I buy an Elgar t-shirt?

    Here is the award-winning BBC Radio 4 comedy starring Christopher Douglas, John Fortune and Stephanie Cole. Ed Reardon (Christopher Douglas) - author, pipe smoker, fare-dodger and master of the abusive email - returns for another series. In these six episodes Ed performs at the Berkhamsted Festival of Literature (in a jazz band) writes the links for TV's Japanese Night (with his own episode of Tenko as the centrepiece), and finds himself in hospital with his beloved laptop.

    Story

    Ed Reardon's Week is sublime.

    Ed is a recently divorced writer in his 50s, living the life of a hack-writer and scraping for cash and food as he goes.

    The writing is scrumptious and the performances are very, very good and as it's a BBC production, the technical production and quality are superb.

    Each episode can be seen as a standalone but there are running themes and arcs to link it all very nicely together.

    The cast, lead by Christopher Douglas as Ed, are without doubt one of the best I've heard since the Hitchhikers Guide - speaking of which, listen out for Geoffrey McGivern in various roles - it's like a little game of 'Where's Ford Prefect?'.

    More importantly it does have massive re-read (or re-listen!) appeal. The stories really do lend themselves to repeat visits.

    Looking forward to series 2....

    Ed Reardon is a failed writer, fare-dodger and master of the abusive email. Living with his cat in a one-bedroom flat, this bearded divorcee grumbles at a modern world seemingly run by 12-year-olds, while churning out books such as Jane Seymour's Household Hints and Pet Peeves (to pay the bills) and trying to live off the royalties of his 1982 episode of Tenko (£17 per annum). We track Ed's attempts to gain the literary success he feels is due in this painfully funny and extraordinarily clever sitcom.

    Berlin, Summer 2011. Adolf Hitler wakes up on a patch of open ground, alive and well. Things have changed - no Eva Braun, no Nazi party, no war. Hitler barely recognises his beloved Fatherland, filled with immigrants and run by a woman. People certainly recognise him, albeit as a flawless impersonator who refuses to break character. The unthinkable, the inevitable happens, and the ranting Hitler goes viral, becomes a YouTube star, gets his own T.V. show, and people begin to listen.

    Well hello to you dear audiobook browser. Now I have your attention it would be rude if I didn't tell you a little about my literary feast. So, here is the thing: is it just me or does anyone else find that adulthood offers no refuge from the unexpected horrors, peculiar lack of physical coordination and sometimes unexplained nudity, that accompanied childhood and adolescence? I am proud to say I have a wealth of awkward experiences - from school days to life as an office temp - and here I offer my 18-year-old self (and I hope you, too, dear listener) some much needed caution and guidance on how to navigate life's rocky path.

    A guy walks into a bar.From here, the story could take many turns. A guy walks into a bar and meets the love of his life. A guy walks into a bar and finds no one else is there. When this guy is David Sedaris, the possibilities are endless, but the result is always the same: he will both delight you with twists of humour and intelligence and leave you deeply moved. In Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls, Sedaris remembers his father's dinnertime attire (shirtsleeves and underpants), his first colonoscopy (remarkably pleasant), and the time he considered buying the skeleton of a murdered Pygmy. The common thread? Sedaris masterfully turns each episode into a love story: how it feels to be in a relationship where one loves and is loved over many years, what it means to be part of a family, and how it's possible, through all of life's absurdities, to accept oneself. With Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls, David Sedaris shows once again why he has been called 'A humorist par excellence, he can make Woody Allen appear ham-tongued, Oscar Wilde a drag' (Observer).
