    "Great radio drama/mystery"

    I'd never heard of this series before I bought it. Was just looking for "radio dramas." These police procedurals work surprisingly well. I thought the plots were more inventive than what you get in TV police dramas and had a nice, fast pace. The characters interact like real human beings, and the actors were excellent. Leave it to the BBC to keep good radio drama alive. This was a great surprise find for me.

    "BBC Radio at its Best"
    What did you love best about Stone, Series 2: The Deserved Dead, Collateral Damage, The Bridge, The Night (BBC Radio 4: Afternoon Play)?

    Stone is played brilliantly by Hugo Speer. His character is a police detective with two other characters reporting to him. I got really engrossed in the story lines which were gritty and relatable. Internal and external problems arise and Stone has to manage it. He has some demons which come out in the story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Stone, Series 2: The Deserved Dead, Collateral Damage, The Bridge, The Night (BBC Radio 4: Afternoon Play)?

    When Mike's wife woke up in the hotel not knowing how she got there after a night out.


    Have you listened to any of Hugo Speer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've only seen him in The Full Monty where he plays a totally different character - great acting but not comparable


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Inspector Stone Mysteries


    Any additional comments?

    So enjoyable and brilliantly produced.

    "Radio 4 drama at its best"

    I love the Stone series and Hugo Speer is excellent in the title role. This really is Radio 4 drama at its best- gritty storylines, superb casting and a Manchester setting!
