"Mr. Tourney seems to have a good understanding of his scenery, and his dialogue has a nice unmannered period feel. He gives us just enough of a 16th-century culture to establish the appropriate tone." (The New Yorker)
My second listen if this and it's still great.
In short: Tony Jay (RIP) is fantastic
The writing is solid
And the overall story (a murder mystery surrounding Shakespeare and him uncovering the truth) is a great take on the many theories about his life.
Give it a listen.
