Excellent

Old Harry's Game series 1 (and 2) is Andy Hamilton at his best; for me he is one of the funniest comedy writers currently living in Britain.

Old Harry rules the roost

Andy Hamilton has written another super script for the denizens of hell. Will the devil find more ways to torment Thomas? Will Scumspawn get to be second in command? Will the professor win an argument out right? Listen and some questions may be answered!!

A Hell to cheer low spirits

In true Dantesque tradition, the punishment reflects the sins committed, but freed from the constraints of literary Tuscan versification, this Prince of Darkness can indulge in more imaginative and personalised eternal torture. The incongruity of a Satan who speaks in a hypernasal Estuary English is joyful enough, but add his chief demon “Gary”, and his repugnance for Thomas, a mortal so vile that even the Devil recoils, his ambivalent relationship with the Professor, who has led a fairly blameless life, but a lifelong atheist, who initially refuses to believe in Hell, observing his new situation from the point of view of a scientist amazed at the inventiveness of his own brain (in coma/dream), who reacts to Old Nick’s most scary demonstrations with “Gosh!”.
Andy Hamilton’s “worldweary” fallen angel, in a job for eternity, despairing of the work load as the damned arrive faster than than Hell’s capacity to process them, and running out of space to house them, frustrated that he is no longer needed to spread mischief in the world, is a sharp social commentator.

Old Harry's game

Exactly my sense of humour, exactly hits the spot. The Devil is in the detail, and Satan is not very good at organization.

Hilarious

I can't remember who suggested this but I do hope that I thanked them at the time because this is hilarous.

Fantastic charactarizations and some real laugh out loud moments.

Yes, I got the whole series. Really improved long, dull journies.

Andy Hamilton is amazing

I believe this is my favourite series of Old Harry's game. once Scum Spawn is introduced everything clicks and one of the most entertaining radio 4 comedy series starts to unfold.

genius

I can't get enough of this series. never fails to make me laugh regardless of how many times I listen. very clever writing and absolutely stunning performances. my only problem is that I would like each series to be at least 8 hours long.
