Thrill! as brave knight Sir William De Warrenne comes back from the Crusades and tries to buy a castle with a combined dungeon/gym.
Swoon! as young Lady Anne watches handyman Sam Tree grease a rusty hinge.
Sympathize! as lord of the castle Sir John hires the latest top-of-the-range horse, but can't work out what to do with the built-in ashtrays.
And Get Out Your Dictionary! as the medieval equivalent of Gordon Ramsey tries to prepare a banquet with a mandolin and some very old swear words....

This radio show is a riot! It's a great mix of period and modern crude comedy. Very funny, but pretty dirty!

I don't normally go for an audio version of a program, but this caught my eye and I risked the credit. Well worth it! The story is a kick and the delivery of the ,lines leave you almost able to picture the physical moments taking place as this is performed. Now I will undoubtedly scour the world for the videos of this hilarious sketch comedy/ comedy-soap. Oh yeah, there are a few running gags!
Love Audible!! Hope you all do too!
The story, the actors......it was all funny!
Too many to list!
Castle Comedy at it's Best!
This had me laughing out loud- very funny and well acted. Worth listening to more than once
This is brilliant but I would expect no less from Kim Fuller - I am a huge fan of much of his other work.
All the characters are hilarious and the situations that arise when they are together make for riveting listening. My husband was not really a fan of audio books until he heard this!
If you like double entendre and a dig at current affairs (which I think will stand the test of time) then this is for you. Even the incidental music between scenes is comedic either because of the title of the original piece or the way it has been adapted - they should release some as ring tones!
I really love any minute of this series. The characters are well built and the authors have created a "contemporary" medieval period in which their characters act and make you laugh. To be listened to if you like the Middle Ages...
"Funny, irreverent, BBC at it's best!"
Funny, irreverent, codpiece!
A modern day take on medieval England.
Moved is the wrong word, but the futuristic inventions are wonderful!
If you liked Old Harry's Game or in fact any BBC radio comedy plays then give this a try, you won't be disappointed. Cool codpiece!!
"The Middle Ages??"
A very funny look at a very modern Middle Ages. A fine cast showing their talent for comic timing and double meaning. I'm looking forward to the next set of stories.
"Cheer you up time"
Great fun. Really enjoyed it. The characters are very well acted. The music is funny as is the dialogue. Recommended
the book was excellent I loved it
the most memorable bit was sir William du warren in love with lady Ann but lady Ann loved Sam tree (a pesent)
the narrating was most excellent
performers were all fine
I love Old Harrys Game, Nebulous radio series and was a massive Red Dwarf fan, but I found this total bollocks.
I like the actors, it is well acted, well scripted with nice allusions to modern-day things, etc., but somehow it just isn't all that funny. Sorry.
"Simple Anachronistic Humour"
This series' humour relies exclusively on anachronisms; teenagers from the middle ages behaving as teensgaers from the 21st century, and a sidekick who keeps inventing modern appliances (such as the microwave) but giving them the most improbable names. These are funny the first time they occur, but by the second episode one grow weary of this show's utter predictability.
