Summary

Mornington Crescent is a game whose rules and history are shrouded in myth and mystery. Now, in this extended version of a spoof documentary first aired on BBC Radio 4, the research team from I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue shine a light in the dark. As if that wasn't enough, Humphrey Lyttelton, Graeme Garden, Tim Brooke-Taylor, and Barry Cryer also provide readings from two learned books on the subject: The Little Book of Mornington Crescent and Stovold's Mornington Crescent Almanac. From Roman times to Chaucer and beyond, Mornington Crescent has become a legend in its own tube stop. Now, at last, its true history can be told.

Thorough and detailed with one glaring omission.

A fantastic, extremely well researched and informative audio book.

It's just a shame that the High Street Premium Variant wasn't covered. This is probably my biggest weak spot and I assumed that such a popular and common version would at least be touched on.

I'm hoping that the historical information will help me to extrapolate. But other than that it's a fun way to pass the time and learn about a great British tradition.

For Mornington Crescent Fans only

I was all ready to enjoy a few excerpts of Mornington Crescent games from various "Clue" episodes. Instead, it was a collection of stories about the game itself, or based on the stations in the game. As much as I love "Clue" and British humor, this just didn't amuse me.
