Miserable

Found this very difficult listening. Non funny political sarcasm. Very disappointed. Only bought it to listen to Miles Jupp and he only appeared in 2 episodes.

Brilliant, as always.

What would we do without the BBC to fill our Friday afternoon commutes with joy and giggles. Always worth a credit purchase!
