Writer Frances Fyfield uses the manuscript of Dickens's last, unfinished, novel to work on the mystery of what happened to the book's eponymous hero, Edwin Drood. First broadcast: BBC Radio 4, 19 January 2012.
I had expected a version of the Dickens story, but this turned out to be a horrible mishmash of people talking about the story (often over top one another). It was weird and difficult to listen to. There was also some strange and distracting "mood music" in the background that made it even more difficult to understand. I am WHOLLY disappointed!

This short piece from Frances Fyfield is an astute and ultimately uplifting investigation into Diccken's last, unfinished novel. Riveting. Recommended.
