Publisher's Summary

The first four series of the original BBC Radio 4 fantastical drama series set in a world almost, but not quite, like our own.

Paul Hilton stars as William Palmer, the immortal, reluctant and unthanked hero protecting mankind from an enemy they resist believing in: the Grey Folk.

Thrilling, dark and contemporary, the dramas are set in a recognisable present day but one haunted by the folktales of the British Isles: drowned villages, changeling children, werewolves and unruly nature spirits.

    "Pilgrim "

    Superb. enthralling. I was so disappointed when it ended . rather than one reader or was a host of talented actors. I would truly recommend this production.

    Story
    "Fairytales for grown ups"
    Would you listen to Pilgrim: The Collected Series 1-4 again? Why?

    This is my third time listening through this series and it still has not got old. The characters are exceptionally well written and easy to identify with, the stories contain all the fantastical elements of childhood fairytales and intersect with each other fluidly and naturally. Once the journey begins it's very hard to tear yourself away.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    "Baby" Kingsley and his "parents". The dialogue is so rich with description and implication, so easy (and perversely delightful) to visualize.


    Any additional comments?

    Magical in the sense it can take you far, far away from the daily grind. Wonderful.

    Great Characters, great production and great story. Took me an episode or two to really get into it, but was hooked after that.

    Wonderful stories, poetic dialogue. Love the modern fairy fantasy. The central performance especially (Pilgrim) is great.

    "Very well acted good story line"

    I haven't listened or read much fantasy fiction but I'm very glad I gave this a try. The author blends lots of different historical and mythical tales to come up with a series of interlinked stories. The cast are excellent. I can't think how I missed this on the radio it's a gem.
    I'm now off to start series 5 - 7.

    "I really loved this."

    great radio play, playing to the feel of a wicker man type world, where the super natural meets the normal, and William Palmer is our reluctant guide. some dodgy story lines but the cast really pulls it back on track and can get drama from the most strange occurrences.

    "Brilliant"

    A first class fully cast radio serial which kept me addicted from start to finish. It was so well presented it was actually amazing that I took three sessions to listen to it.

    It blended humour fantasy and suspense and you felt sympathy for Pilgrim who after nearly a thousand years just wants to die ( not a spoiler as this fact is made clear from the beginning of the first episode).

    There are treacherous characters and those you can really sympathise with all done with a full cast in an excellent way by the BBC,

    Just got series 5 - 7 and I am hoping the excellent standard continues
