Tens of thousands of runners descend on London for one of the biggest events of the year... but there's a lot more to the Virgin Money London Marathon than just running. Over thirteen episodes crammed with some of comedy's brightest talents and the odd celebrity cameo, we get inside the minds of: a man who's entered the race by accident; an aunt being blackmailed by her niece; a ghost doomed to haunt the course for eternity; a woman who develops an unusual relationship with her phone; and a couple who are about to get engaged with disastrous consequences... among many others.

first episode was pretty good, second was even better - thought the Derren Brown bit was exceptional, really made me chuckle!

Dumped on a nowhere world by the opening of the Cicatrix Maledictum, the Red Sunz Mek mob are struggling to survive. When a call to Waaagh! rings out across the planet, the chance at survival, as well as some shooty-fun, beckons. But all is not what it seems. Only an ork with real orky know-wots can hope to overcome the False Waaagh...!

The Greek myths are amongst the greatest stories ever told, passed down through millennia and inspiring writers and artists as varied as Shakespeare, Michelangelo, James Joyce and Walt Disney. They are embedded deeply in the traditions, tales and cultural DNA of the West. You'll fall in love with Zeus, marvel at the birth of Athena, wince at Cronus and Gaia's revenge on Ouranos, weep with King Midas and hunt with the beautiful and ferocious Artemis.

I dipped into reading this book years ago, been meaning to get back to read it since then but not getting around to it. this complete edition is excellent, performances solid, really enjoyable and I hope Neil Gaiman does return to Shadow's adventures one day
