Originally broadcast on Christmas Day 2003, the I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue Players present their unique interpretation of Dickens' A Christmas Carol, starring Humphyre Lyttelton as Ebenezer Scrumph, Colin Sell as his downtrodden assistant Crotchet, and Graeme Garden, Tim Brooke-Taylor, and Barry Cryer as the Ghosts of Christmas Future, Present, and P*ssed. This Yuletide extravaganza is not to be missed.
Plus, there's a generous stockingful of silly games and pointless revelry from the merry gentlemen of the Clue team, including some memorable moments from the much-missed Willie Rushton. Join them for a feast of festive fun with all the seasonal trimmings!
bah humbug - I dislike christmas shows.
But I laughed out loud several times and groaned in pain at the puns far too often listening this, the special edition is more scripted than most but definitely not to it's detriment, the structure just allows the cast to do what they do best with more regularity.
It's Clue with everything to love about it, and as with other collections of I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue it's something to listen to over and over - no matter what time of year.
With all the favourite cast from the classic Willie Rusthon era up to the best of special guests from recent years there's something to please everyone - god bless them one and all.
Very funny beginning, amazing wit by all on the show, but let down by a mediocre second half. Worth the money for the first show alone.

Hilarious. Love the old format... Samantha, Lionel etc. Listen time and again and still laugh. BBC radio 4 at its best.
Nice selection of classic ISIHAC seasonal shows. Always brings a smile to my face.p whatever my mood.

Humph, the team and a few special guests bring all the old favourite rounds into the Christmas Carol, with Scrooge and all the other characters. Do not wait until Christmas to listen.
This may be nearly 10 years old but it is as fresh and funny as the day it was first broadcast. I originally bought it in cassette form, then upgraded to CD and now mp3 for my ipod. That's how much I enjoy listening to it. Full of traditional Clue fun this is a must for any fan of the show and ideal for those new to the genre. Right from the outset the laughs come quickly even when you've heard it time and time again. To give your a clue (pun intended) as to how good this is, I even bought additional CDs for friends and family and have a copy in my car for long journeys. I never tire of this and neither will you.
