Entertaining

Definitely better than the first series, nicely observed spin on village life, and worth it for the pub quiz episode alone.

2 series are just not enough

How is this little BBC gem not a huge global mega-hit? It's just superb. For a little-known series of half-hour episodes, it really punches above its weight. Well written, well acted, and very, very funny. The characters are likeable, and the world they inhabit is engaging.

More of this, please, BBC.

It's okay, just not as good as the first series

The first series was funny and charming. Sadly, the jokes are rather tired in the second one. Julian Rhind-Tutt's absence is felt.

Wonderful storyline, shame about cast change

Loved both series, however it was a shame that Julian Rhind-Tutt did not get to play Field Commander Uljabaan in the second. He played the role perfectly.

It's just very very funny

Well imagined, innovative, very well performed, and it really did make me laugh out loud

Not as good as series one

The second series was nowhere near as good as the first. The plots were stodgy and too contrived.

Good follow up to the first series

I don't usually buy anything this short but I really enjoyed the first series.

Personally I preferred the first seres but it's still good and worth picking up. The cast are excellent and provide a few hours entertainment.

While you're at it, pick up Old Harry's Game!

Jolly good!

Great writing again but some of the story lines weren't as entertaining as Series 1. Julian Rhind Tutt is missed as the Field Commander. But an enjoyable series in its own right!

Great sci-if, comedy romp!

Just as funny as the first series and I hope they make more. Sadly, Charles Edwards voices Field Commander Uljabaan in this series, rather than Julian Rhind-Tutt. Edwards is good, but his inflections lack the gleeful mischief of Rhind-Tutt's delivery. Still the rest of the cast is brilliant and the writing sparkles.

Hilarious

When it has been raining all day, and you are moody, this show cheers you up and makes you laugh. Every episode was equally funny. I would recommend this audio book to every one. It is worth the credit twice over.
