I listen rather than read on train journeys as I can't stand being jostled by other travelers, and walking & listening is so easy

    Overall

    I haven't laughed as hard for AGES as I did while listening to this - not only is the script incredibly well written, but the performances are brilliant, and the actors who are doing the voice work are all great



    The concept is amusing in itself, but add in the comedy stars who acted this and you have comedy GOLD! One of the best things is having Sophie Winkleman playing the Elven princess, because imagining her in the role will make any red blooded man smile



    I'm buying the second and third series as soon as I can to continue listening to the adventures, and hope that they're as brilliant as the first one is, or even hope that they're better - I will certainly look forward to the work of these writers on any radio broadcasts or audio books I find



    Giving this anything less than 5 stars would be impossible for me as this was the funniest listen I've had in AGES - long live ElvenQuest!

    Stephen Mangan stars as fantasy novelist Sam, who is whisked off to a Tolkien-style parallel universe by a noble elf, a sexy warrior princess and a feisty dwarf called Dean. It seems that Sam's dog is 'The Chosen One' destined to save 'Lower Earth' from the evil Lord Darkness (Alistair McGowan).

    Story

    While I love the ElvenQuest series, you can tell that this has lost one of it's writers, because there is no real cohesive story between the episodes in the 3rd series, while the previous 2 seasons had a running story, with the characters actually following a "path", and the ending of this series leaves you "wanting more", where the previous series had a firm ending point.

    The characters in this are fabulous, and the actors really know each other at this point, so the way they interact is fantastic, it's just a pity that the writing isn't as good as it was - the jokes are as good, and the delivery is still brilliant, but this feels like several unrelated episodes rather than a real story.

    One great example of the "average" writing is that Lord Darkness needs to find a bride in one episode, approaches Penthiselea and is (obviously) turned away, but the following episode there is no mention of him needing a bride - clearly it was only setup for the jokes that could arise from the situation, with no thought of where it fits within the overall storyline... Anil Gupta is good at the jokes, but not so good at a story...

    Stephen Mangan (Green Wing, Free Agents), Alistair McGowan (Alistair McGowan's Big Impression) and Sophie Winkleman (Peep Show, Red Dwarf) star in this fantastical new BBC Radio 4 surreal science-fiction comedy by Richard Pinto (The Armstrong & Miller Show) and Anil Gupta (The Office). Stephen stars as fantasy novelist Sam, who is whisked off to a Tolkien-style parallel universe by a noble elf, a sexy warrior princess, and a feisty dwarf called Dean. This is the third series of the six-part BBC Radio 4 series.

    Philip says: "Good, but not as good as the previous 2 series"
  • "Worth re-listening MANY times"

    Overall

    It's great when you find a radio show that is so engaging, interesting and educational that you just HAVE to listen to it again and again, and this is such an example

    The show goes from strength to strength, with Stephen Fry giving the overview and experts in the fields along with comedians - this is just a complete and utter joy to listen to

    If you love the English language, this radio show in an audio book is a MUST buy - I'm only dropping to 4 stars because it's so short, if it was longer I could enjoy more of the information that the show imparts, and give it all 5 stars

By day he made thousands of dollars a minute. By night he spent it as fast as he could, on drugs, sex, and international globe-trotting.

    During the height of its popularity, almost the entire country listened to the fifteen-minute, Monday-through-Friday adventures of Amos and Andy. Department stores open in the evening piped in the broadcasts so shoppers wouldn't miss an episode; movie theaters scheduled their features to end just prior to the start of Amos 'n' Andy so they too could pipe it in. The characters were members of the Mystic Knights of the Sea Lodge, of which George Stevens was "the Kingfish."
