Summary

Set during World War Two, Hut 33 follows the adventures of a team of codebreakers at Bletchley Park as they work tirelessly to break German codes, matching wits with the fabled Enigma Machine. Unfortunately, they hate each other.

Archie is a stroppy Geordie socialist revolutionary while Professor Charles Gardner is a toffee-nosed snob. In theory, the immensely stupid 3rd Lt. Joshua Featherstonhaugh-Marshall is in charge of the hut, but he is still struggling with even the most basic concepts, such as his name. They are joined by child prodigy Gordon and the silent Winstanley. There's also Mrs Best, the lascivious landlady, and the hut's Polish secretary, Minka, the only competent member of the team - although her answers to everything usually involve violence.

Starring Tom Goodman-Hill as Archie, Robert Bathurst as Professor Charles Gardner, Alex MacQueen as 3rd Lt. Joshua Featherstonhaugh-Marshall, Fergus Craig as Gordon, Lill Roughley as Mrs Best, and Olivia Colman as Minka.

Produced by Adam Bromley.

Code breaking at its funniest

A very funny show that am glad to have in my collection (prior to this release only series 2was available).

Sitcom based at Bletchley Park in WW2.

Oh lovely, lovely stuff! Very funny!

I really enjoyed this series. Great writing and wonderful performances - especially Olivia Colman.
It's not Cabin Pressure (but then again - nothing's THAT good,) but it's the same kind of thing, with consistent characters bouncing off of each other each episode.
Have no fears in ordering this - you can't fail to enjoy it.

Extremely Funn

James Cary has created a wonderfully funny comedy in this radio classic. Once started its hard not to stop listening to each episode as the characters and storylines are so embracing. Olivia Colman (Minka) and Lill Roughley (Mrs Best) play some great characters and have a tremendous range of accents...superb! I also cant believe that Hugh Grant is not the well spoken Charles as every episode you actually believe its him being the well spoken professor. Josh, Archie and Gordon are great characters too and together the whole cast really immerse you into WW2 Bletchley Park. Hut 33 thoroughly enjoyed and hard to put down. Fantastic and well recommended

This is one of the best things I have listened too. Great script, very funny, superb casting. All actors were excellent. Shame it was only 3 series.

original and best thing to come from UK in years

I spent my first ten years growing up in the UK. My family has always enjoyed British humor and the familiar themes of Fawlty, Porridge, Dad's Army, etc. I have enjoyed them in the past, but for a few years now they'd grown stale for me. Hut 33 brought back to me just how good Brit humor can be in a nice fresh way. lots to like in the characters - my fave a psychopathic Pole - strongly recommended

Milk snorted out of my nose

I am a sucker for anything with Olivia Colmen, so of course I got this. Hut 33 is about a group of people during WWII who are suppose to be cracking codes, but other things happen. Like class warfare, the visit of a royal, or even air raids. The acting is great, the lines wonderful. Do not drink while listening.
