The central idea of this very welcome return for the legendary comedy trio is that Britain is in such a state that the country needs The Goodies to run it and, having listened to 'The Big Ben Theory', I can confirm that Britain does indeed very much need The Goodies (and unfortunately also that Britain is in one heck of a state!).

It is so marvellous that, nearly forty years on from the last of their television exploits, Audible have retrieved The Goodies and their trandem from deep storage in the bowels of the former BBC Television Centre, blown the cobwebs off Bill, Tim and Graeme, oiled the bike's chains and brought our heroes back in audio form.

The result is a mix of all that there was to love and laugh about in The Goodies with an added soupçon of one of the trio's other successes, the radio sketch show I'm Sorry I'll Read That Again - and it's all highly entertaining, well written, superbly performed... and as well as The Goodies, there are also the vocal talents of Joanna Lumley, Phil Pope, John Culshaw, Kate Harbour and Barnaby Eaton-Jones to enjoy. And enjoy you will...

Britain needs The Goodies. The world could do with them, too!

MORE!!!!
