Everyone deserves to get away for a bit. Even the miscreants at St Mary's. Astonishingly, Dr. Bairstow has declared a holiday. Even more astonishingly - he's paying for it. Needless to say, there are strings attached. They have to record the 1601 performance of Hamlet, with Shakespeare himself in the role of the Ghost. It doesn't go well, of course.

Another great story...only marred by being short.

Would you listen to The Great St. Mary's Day Out again? Why?

Bought on day of release - read the same day...as usual.Lots of references to previous stories, just spoilt by being FAR TOO SHORT.Roll on the next full length story.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The Bristolian...who else?

What does Zara Ramm bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Excellent Narration. I found myself wondering how many accents she has to do in one short story?

Any additional comments?

Bring on the next one.....fast.
