Publisher's Summary

The complete seventh series of the fiendishly funny award-winning comedy, starring Andy Hamilton, Annette Crosbie and Timothy West.

Jean Paul Sartre said, 'Hell is other people'. But, as Satan will tell you, Hell is actually a fiery, unendingly cruel domain where Oliver Reed can never quite catch the barman's eye and Yves St Laurent is forced to wear a donkey jacket. But Hell is about to become more hellish for Satan himself (Andy Hamilton).

Not only is the historian Edith Barrington (Annette Crosbie) taking for ever to write his biography, An Angel Misunderstood, but everything is thrown into confusion when a dog turns up. Animals aren't meant to end up in Hell because they're not evil - well, except for dolphins of course. So why is it here?

After much licking, begging and slobbering - mainly from Scumspawn - Satan decides to keep the dog and ask God (Timothy West) what is going on. But God has decided to go on a gap year to find himself. And Hell receives another, even more inexplicable guest...

All six episodes from the seventh series of BBC Radio 4's Sony Award-winning comedy set in Hell.

    "Hilarious"

    I can't believe I missed this series on the radio! I have all of Andy Hamilton's "Old Harry's Game" series (with the exception of series 3). If you liked any of the previous series you will love this one. Here we find Satan in his domain when a dog (some cute mongrel) and a baby (which Scumspawn calls 'Satan Junior' much to Satan's annoyance) turn up. Satan knows there is a cock up and tries to get to the end of it and is seen by a couple of 'middle management' angels who tell him that God is not available. Satan requested to see God and is then seen by the Angel Gabriel whom he has some fun with before God turns up from his sabbatical to sort the mess out. Along the way Satan is brought to book by Enid which infuriates him and of course, Thomas is as despicable as ever even though he takes the dog for walkies to befriend it and ends up being 'double crossed' with his emotions. This is as good as ever and I recommend this series to everyone.

    "Still brilliant . . ."

    . . . after 7 series. Yes, it's getting a little predictable (and only a little) here and there, but there are still many a 'laugh out loud' moment.

    "Heaven or hell?"

    Once again super cast, fantastic script and as funny as Thomas's trousers full of angry lobsters ( yes I have listened to most of the series)

    "Clever & Hilarious"

    this series never fails to amuse. the performances are so good that you believe it, the writing is so clever that it never fails to have you laughing out loud,. I cannot recommend the whole series highly enough. I do hope there is another. Andy Hamilton is a genius.

    "A good ending for a good series"

    This series closes the story in a reasonable way.
    The story is well written and the performance is extremely good.

    "Cannot get enough of Old Harry's Game,!"

    I wish they would re-commence the series! Andy Hamilton is brilliant in his writing and as Satan, and the ensemble is wonderful. I am sad that series 7 is the final.:(

    "Good Clean Fun"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    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 .. This season is not as good as the rest, still good but nowhere near as good as the others. There is a feeling of more repetition .
