    "genius"

    I can't get enough of this series. never fails to make me laugh regardless of how many times I listen. very clever writing and absolutely stunning performances. my only problem is that I would like each series to be at least 8 hours long.

    "Very funny series"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Heartily recommend this audiobook, very funny satirical comedy, Andy Hamilton is the perfect Satan, the Professor is the great as a counterpoint to the dry humour of Satan, Science v. Fantasy makes for great listening and v. Enjoyable series. Although this is a 1990's series still v. Relevant and funny. Best listen I have had for ages. Found it first on bbc 4 extra and just had to download all the series in audible as couldn't wait for reruns to catch up. Well worth the credits


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Old Harry's Game?

    The professor having a bet with Satan that mankind is inherently decent!


    Have you listened to any of Andy Hamilton’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Series 2 builds on series 1 and just gets better and better


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    V. Funny, laughed out loud and got some v. Strange looks on the tube!

    Story
    "Raising hell to new heights"
    If you could sum up Old Harry's Game in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, clever, provocative


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Old Harry's Game?

    Scumspawn's attempts at ingratiating Satan a.k.a Old Harry


    Which character – as performed by Andy Hamilton – was your favourite?

    Andy Hamilton only plays Satan, the Devil, Lord of Darkness, Beezlebub, Old Harry: all titles of the ruler of hell. There are different actors playing the other main roles and the incidental roles. The main characters (apart from Andy Hamilton's Satan) are the professor; the financial whizz kid who killed the professor; and Scumspawn, the demon who wants to please Satan and be his deputy. They all have their strong points, but If forced to choose then Scumspawn comes above Satan in my estimation of humor and narrative force, although the professor and his relation to his nemesis is often central to the plots.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Dare to laugh at the Devil


    Any additional comments?

    Complete second series and the name and role of the assistant demon has changed so listen after the complete first series to derive maximum comprehension and enjoyment.

    "Brilliant"

    This is my favourite radio comedy programme ever, works on every level, as a sitcom, a comedy about big ideas, genuine pathos, and very funny slapstick/ broad humour too. Contours up fantastic images. I just love it....

    "Never disappoints"

    Series two as good as series one though I do miss Gary a bit. Scum spawn is a delightful addition to the cast. I really do enjoy old Harrys game and am off to download series three. Would recommend to anyone

    "Old Harry rules the roost "

    Andy Hamilton has written another super script for the denizens of hell. Will the devil find more ways to torment Thomas? Will Scumspawn get to be second in command? Will the professor win an argument out right? Listen and some questions may be answered!!

    "Hilarious from beginning to end"

    The genius of Andy Hamilton. There are seven series and a Christmas special, all absolutely first class. Superbly witty, brilliantly performed, a must-have for the collection.
