    "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.

    "Got to love Andy Hamilton.."

    Packed with the usual running gags and a character list collected from the annuls of history, Andy Hamilton brings his own unique spin to the machinations of the satanic realm.

    "Is this the end of hell?"

    As always a superb piece of writing and performing. The Prof is trying to get the upper hand with the Devil and poor Scumspawn and, not so poor, Thomas as always end up being tormented by the Devil in some hideous but inventive way.

    "GETS BETTER AND BETTER"

    This whole series is probably the funniest thing I have ever listened to. I have bought the whole lot. I am never disappointed and even though I have listened over and over again, it still makes me laugh.
    Cannot get enough of them all.
    Just wonderful.

    "Great script and story"

    Andy Hamilton is a genius. This is funny and while very dated in terms of the 'current affairs' used to silent the stories, the main themes of heaven and hell, and man's good or evil are very cleverly explored. Series 4 means we know the characters and their foibles well - and once again we listen as Satan tries to prove the fundamental evil of mankind, with Thomas doing nothing to to contradict this with his odious attitude! while the prof constantly rebutes this, and with Scum-Sporn, Satan's romantic, gentle aide in evil, they attempt to sway the prince of darkness' view point. Laugh out loud stuff. Well dramatised and the cast is excellent. VERY white, VERY English, VERY funny!

    "Perfection"

    A classic. Hamilton is superb as both voice and writer. Jokes are witty, silly, funny and naughty. Two thumbs up!

    "The fun Continues"
    Where does Old Harry's Game rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Yes, depends on your humour but this is good old clean funny. I highly recommend getting a few seasons and if you like the first few episodes .. if you like them get all the series as with the exception of season 7 they are all excellent, season 7 good just not quite the same and a little more repetition .

    Story
    "Totally, Breathtakingly, Hilarious"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Old Harry's Game to be better than the print version?

    Um...this is a radio show so I don't think there is a comparable print edition. But if there was, I would still go for audio. This way, you get actors acting out the parts and special effect music to add to the whole thing.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    What isn't interesting? Seriously, there isn't a dull moment! Hm...most interesting? I would say (spoiler alert!) the surprise appearance from God.


    Which character – as performed by Andy Hamilton and Jimmy Mulville – was your favorite?

    Andy Hamilton, who played Satan. He really convinced me that Satan, prince of darkness, was overall a nice guy. Which, now that I think about it, really shouldn't happen!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "Hell's not a place for safety inspectors"


    Any additional comments?

    Make sure to listen to it with a friend, because it is impossible not to make references and think about it after listening to it. It's just that addictive.
