Publisher's Summary

The complete series nine of the popular BBC Radio 4 comedy, starring Christopher Douglas as Ed Reardon.

Ed Reardon, ‘the curmudgeon's curmudgeon', leads us through the ups and downs of his week in this ninth series of the award-winning radio sitcom, written by Christopher Douglas and Andrew Nickolds.

In these six episodes, Ed writes a personal statement and applies for a proper job; finds himself becoming the oldest intern in town (and sharing an office with Ping); and pens a script for Jaz Milvain's latest movie. In addition he enrols in a clinical trial, takes up a professorship at a prestigious writing retreat and shows off his general knowledge in a radio quiz.

As he continues his quest for literary success, Ed must draw on all his talents as a freelancer and freeloader to keep body and soul together (and trusty companion Elgar in Value catfood). But is his luck changing at last?

Christopher Douglas stars as Ed, with Jenny Agutter, Stephanie Cole, Philip Jackson, Alison Steadman, Barunka O'Shaughnessy and Geoffrey Whitehead.

So glad to find this ! Hilarious.

I hadn't realised there was a new series out and was delighted to find it ! The standard is just as high as before and the chapter where Ed does a spell as an intern had me choking on my breakfast lol. Also loved the way social media starts invading his life in this latest series - not in a good way.

The sheer asininity!

A farrago of juvenile asininity produced by a bunch of 12 year olds at the BBC and fit only for the type of rebarbative plankton that “consumes” great literature on their “smart” phones. Although what’s so smart about a phone is a mystery to me. I mean, honestly.

If it’s timeless drama you’re after, you should buy the box set of Tenko instead. It’s still available on Betamax at the South Herts University thrift shop.
