"What good enjoyable radio drama should be"
Witty engaging fun
This is one of a series of BBC crime drama serials that have been available on audible. They all follow the format of two self contained dramas based on one central character. In this case it is father baldi a priest on a sabbatical who uses his skills in semiotics to help the garde solve murders that he has a lose connection to. It is particularly good as he has a "love" interest with one of the lead detectives which creates an interesting tension in the series.
All in all very enjoyable what SATURDAY Night theatre on Radio 4 used to be enjoyable without being too cerebral.
Can we have Saturday night theater on Audible?
