Summary

Here is the award-winning BBC Radio 4 comedy starring Christopher Douglas, John Fortune, and Stephanie Cole. Ed Reardon (Christopher Douglas) – author, pipe smoker, fare-dodger, and master of the abusive email – returns for another series.

In these six episodes, Ed performs at the Berkhamsted Festival of Literature (in a jazz band), writes the links for TV’s Japanese Night (with his own episode of Tenko as the centrepiece), and finds himself in hospital with his beloved laptop.

Written by Christopher Douglas and Andrew Nickolds, Ed Reardon’s Week includes supporting roles from Stephanie Cole as Olive, John Fortune as Felix, and Barunka O’Shaughnessy as Ping.

Ed Reardon’s Week was voted Best Radio Programme by the Broadcasting Press Guild.

As good as the first brilliant service...

I'm delighted to say that Ed Reardon's Week series 2 is as thoroughly enjoyable as the fantastic series 1.

The characters are more established and the blend is very strong. The cast remains mainly the same with the exception of Barunka O'Shaughnessy who is parachuted into Ping's shoes and really takes the character up a notch or two.

Ed's life continues to struggle along from one disaster to another with a couple of moments to give him something to smile about.

His banter with Jaz Milvane (played by Philip Jackson) just gets better and better.

I'm becoming a big Ed Reardon fan. Where can I buy an Elgar t-shirt?

If you could sum up Ed Reardon's Week: The Complete Second Series in three words, what would they be?

Good frustrating funny

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did want to listen to each series in one sitting as it was enjoyable
