The writer David Eldridge introduces his BBC Radio 3 full-cast drama, The Picture Man starring Martin Freeman, about a man who despairs of the behaviour he sees around him and decides to take action. Originally broadcast in the ‘Drama on 3’ slot on 6 January 2008.
Neil decides he has been pushed too far by the uncaring and often callous behaviour he sees around him. But when he begins to intervene in incidents by taking pictures on his mobile phone, it has disastrous consequences.
Starring Martin Freeman as Neil, Heather Craney as Janine, Emil Marwa as Hussein and Peter Marinker as George. Also included in the cast are Jake Harders, Ania Sowinkski, Bailey Pepper, Joseph Tremain, Anna Bengo, Laura Molyneux, Alex Lanipekun and Ben Crowe. Directed by Sally Avens.
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this. It was fun, had a message and was brilliantly read. Thank you!
Great fun story. Well acted. Much prefer plays to narrated books. Shame there aren't more of them on Audible
I think that Martin Freeman's performance is wonderful, but the story isn't very interesting really.
A nice piece of fiction, well performed and beautiful sound design.
Martin Freeman is the bomb-ditty.
