Publisher's Summary

Paul Hilton stars as Pilgrim in the final three series of the award-winning BBC Radio 4 supernatural drama by Sebastian Baczkiewicz.

In 1185 William Palmer was making a pilgrimage to Canterbury. Unbeknown to him, his fellow pilgrim was the King of the Greyfolk. When William claimed that the church would eradicate belief in the Faerie world, he was cursed by the Faerie King and condemned to walk forever between the worlds of magic and of men.

In these three series, Pilgrim continues on his mission to preserve the uneasy balance between the two worlds and protect mankind from an enemy they resist believing in. His quests include searching for the Radiant Boy, a sinister harbinger of impending death; acquiring copper, silver and gold to rescue a group of people trapped in a mine by a malevolent spirit; and tracking down and punishing a former friend who has betrayed him. After so many centuries, will his curse be lifted and his wanderings finally come to an end?

Starring Paul Hilton as the immortal, reluctant and unthanked hero, this award-winning series weaves together ancient myths, magic and contemporary realism to create a dark, thrilling and enchanting fantasy epic that will stay with you long after Pilgrim's story ends.

Duration: nine hours approx.

    "Wonderful."

    What a wonderful story. Pilgrim, a man and a road travelled, that was so full of fantasy and humanity in these selfish times. More, SB ( the author ) please don't deny us more of Pilgrims travels and encounters with the grey folk.

    Story
    "Wonderous World of William or Bill, Billy if you like..."

    This is a magical series that I first heard on R4 over a period of years, sometimes missing episodes. Thrilled to be able to listen to it now, over and over again...I never tire of it, the cast is brilliant, the stories timeless and modern at the same time. It is simply perfect for anyone who enjoys moving between the worlds of hot bloods and grey folk. Sebastian Baczkiewicz has created something sublime and I thank him

    Story
    "great stuff"
    What does full cast and Paul Hilton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    As there isn't a book, this is impossible to answer ...


    Any additional comments?

    Was a little unsure after listening to the first episode in the first series, but it just went on from strength to strength after that ... downloaded this second series immediately after finishing the first one and it doesn't disappoint. The ending feels like the series is being wrapped up, but I hope there will be more at some time - it has been a thoroughly enjoyable listen, and has helped the hours fly past while weeding on the allotment. I shall miss the company of William, Bill or Billy if you prefer ...

    "just okay"

    the plot was hard to follow and blurred together in a way that the early series didn't.
