Strong characterizations, good performances and direction make these radio dramas come alive, as always!
All the Baldi collections provide good value, entertainment, and high production values.
Baldi is not a 'book' character so much as a BBC creation, but faithful to its core character, a priest drawn to solving crime, though not in quite the same way as Chesterton's "Father Brown."
These collections of radio episodes differ as much in their plotting, as in their moral lessons. All of them offer insights to criminal motivation, with much sympathy for the fallen.
Keep them coming!
