    This classic comedy is set in the charming country home of Charles Condomine, a remarried widower. A witty and convivial evening party among friends is transformed when a seance conjures the ghost of Elvira, Charles' first wife, who delights in wreaking havoc among the living. An enchanting Coward comedy!

    This was a charming production of a very funny play. The acting was wonderful with characters who were at once infuriating and endearing. The live audience was a great addition to this audio experience as were the occasional sound effects. Overall, a great play well done.

    Dame Judi Dench and Geoffrey Palmer star as old flames Jean Pargetter and Lionel Hardcastle. Their love story was all set for a happy ending in the 1950s when Jean was a student nurse and Lionel, a young army officer. But he was posted abroad and they lost touch. Thirty-eight years later, Lionel has returned to London to publish his autobiography and, through a strange coincidence, he is reunited with Jean who has set up a secretarial agency.

    Story

    This is a great radio play closely following the BBC T.V. series. The characters are well written and charming. The situations they find themselves in are entertaining without being fantastic or unbelievable and their interactions reveal a very genuine warmth. A healthy dose of sarcasm and self deprecating humor keeps the program from becoming too sweet. I thoroughly enjoyed my time in the company of Lionel and Jean. The only improvement I could ask for is the ability to buy the next few series!

    If you could sum up Potting On in three words, what would they be?

    Delightful, Good Natured, Easy


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters were all quite different which helped create entertaining conflict without being mean spirited or negative. The stories were accessible, everyday ordeals that would try anyone but with the lovely addition of great humor.


    What does Pam Ayres and Geoffrey Whitehead bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The accents are so much fun for me as an American. They sound like a working class woman and an upper class man which is a delightful additional counterpoint to their personalities; She is hard working and fun loving while he is lazy and self adsorbed. They obviously love each other, though, which makes it much easier to laugh at them.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope Audible will add additional series of Potting On soon.

    Four classic episodes from the original TV series: Arrival, Songs of Praise, Easter Special and The Christmas Lunch Incident. Welcome to Dibley, a perfect village full of some perfectly peculiar people - including Alice Tinker and her underactive brain, Owen Newitt and his overactive bowels, and Letitia Cropley and her orange cake with Branston pickle icing.

    What did you love best about Vicar of Dibley 1?

    I loved the TV series and this is an audio only version of the show.


    What other book might you compare Vicar of Dibley 1 to and why?

    The Good Life and Fawlty Towers are two other BBC televion series transferred to audio exactly as aired with the exception of brief narration. The Good Life and Vicar of Dibley are both very warm and funny.


    What about Dawn French’s performance did you like?

    Dawn French is able to deliver barbs and sarcasm without a hint of malice, never losing that lovely feeling that she genuinely likes these kooky characters


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I had to ration it out slowly since there are (as of yet) no more in the series.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope audible will make all of these wonderful shows available soon!
