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 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.
Written by Christopher Douglas and Andrew Nickolds, Ed Reardon's Week includes guest appearances by Sean Lock, Laura Solon, Mark Watson, Morwenna Banks, and David Warner.
Ed Reardon's Week was voted Best Radio Programme by the Broadcasting Press Guild.

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.
