The eighth series of the wickedly funny BBC Radio 4 comedy. Financial expert Alvin Hall stars in a remake of 'The Italian Job', Michael Parkinson's legendary interviewing technique is turned on his local branch of Pizza Hut, Patrick Moore applies to read the football results on Sky Sports and gravelly-voiced Doctor Who makes enquiries about interstellar travel on the London Eye. There are apparent appearances from a host of other celebrity favourite’s too, including Kirsty Wark, Thora Hird and - of course - Brian Perkins. Jon Culshaw, Jan Ravens, Mark Perry, Kevin Connelly and Phil Cornwell give us their impressions of the people we love to laugh at in this quartet of quality episodes. NB: The contents of this release may differ slightly from the episodes as originally broadcast.
This might not appeal to American readers as the comedy is steeped in British culture but for British readers who are also addicted to Radio 4 the experience is unbeatable. I am especially fond of the wicked Brian Perkins who has committed the most terrible atrocities and Charlotte Greene whose alter ego in Dead Ringers makes her say the most awful things! Highly enjoyable.
