Publisher's Summary

Charles Dickens' classic novel stars Alex Jennings as Charles Dickens and Pauline Quirke as Mrs Boffin. Adapted by Mike Walker. Following his father's death, John Harmon returns to London to claim his inheritance. But he finds he is only eligible if he marries Bella Wilfer. To observe her character he assumes another identity and secures work with his father's foreman, Mr Boffin, who is also Bella's guardian. Our Mutual Friend was Charles Dickens' last complete novel and is a satiric masterpiece about money. This complete Woman's Hour Drama, which contains all 20 episodes, was first broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in 2009.

Great cast but the plot has been butchered

Our Mutual Friend is my favourite Dockers novel so I'm horrified by the liberties the adaptor has taken with the plot. Some quite major changes have been made. This BBC version is nowhere near as good as the 1984 one starring Michael Kitchen and Simon Cadell, unfortunately.not available on Audible.

I thought it was an audiobook :(

I thought it was an audiobook :( But it was nice to listen to anyway. Pauline was very good.
