Publisher's Summary

A BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of Henry Fielding's rollicking comic masterpiece. Found one evening in the bed of the rich and benevolent Mr Allworthy, baby Tom grows up in the guardianship of the kindly squire. He develops into a good-hearted fellow who is nonetheless resented by Allworthy's mean-natured heir and nephew, Blifil. Tom's naive inability to resist a pretty face lands him in hot water when the gamekeeper's daughter declares herself pregnant. Since Tom has fallen in love with the squire's daughter, Sophia, who is herself betrothed to Blifil, the foundling finds himself banished from the Allworthy household. In pursuing the runaway Sophia to London, Tom embarks upon a series of riotous, and frequently amorous, adventures. However further trouble, and the revelation of his true identity, await him in London.

Starring Anton Lesser as Tom, with Annette Crosbie, Hannah Gordon, Sarah Badel and Martin Jarvis.

    "Great voice acting"

    Smutty, humorous, and enthralling. Another great BBC dramatization! Listen to it all in one day. Worth the price considering how long it is.
