"Great Fun and better than any anti-depressant…"
Mark Steel’s in Town series are non-stop fun. Whimsical, intelligent, he mixes fact and humour in his trademark style. Please release his many lectures on historical characters, and the new Series 7 soon. Thank you.
A lovely tour of British towns. Steel has a great rapport with his audience. The jokes are affectionate, almost as if the populus are taking a wry look at themselves. For those who like the political Steel - he's still there. But this is wonderful listening for anyone, especially those who have ever been strangers in a strange land. Also genuinely informative!&
