Dalziel with a difference

Completely off the wall, but very enjoyable. Jonathan Keeble an excellent reader, making all the characters come to life.

Enjoyable...

Who can resist the pairing of Dalziel and Pascoe? Short but sweet and tinged with regret as a great author has left us.

Not long enough to get into

Although it was excellently narrated by Jonathan Keeble, I felt the story just wasn’t long enough to get into. It didn’t have time to give us the complicated twists, turns and background stories that we usually get from these characters. It seemed as soon as I was settled into it, it was finished. It was also slightly strange being set in a future that technology hasn’t yet reached yet our calendars have already passed. Personally I was disappointed and would say it wasn’t worth spending the credit on.

Different but Reginald Hill as good as ever

Unusual to have a short story but a good read. Well narrated as ever by Jonathan Keeble.

Avoid at all costs

Normally I enjoy listening to Dalziel and Pascoe however I feel like the author had run out of ideas, why take them to space, waste of time and don’t bother

Disappointing.

This is Dalziel and Pascoe gone Scifi. Not my kind of story. I like the detective duo, but this is just plain silly. Great reading though from Jonathan Keeble - as always.

Very witty

Nicely put together short story for Dalziel & Pascoe’s 20th anniversary. The usual wit and cleverness.

Quirky short story

This is very much a tongue in cheek parody sending up lots of racial stereotypes and envisaging the retired Andy in a kind of future.

Plays up the strengths of the main protagonists and, if you can accept the setting, amusing.
