Publisher's Summary

The complete Series One of Andy Hamilton's award-winning BBC Radio 4 comedy set in Hell.

It's not easy being Satan. Thrown out of heaven, he is condemned for eternity to listen to Edith Piaf and Elvis Presley. Still, there are new arrivals to welcome: the Professor (James Grout), whose unerring optimism is a nasty blow and Thomas (Jimmy Mulville), one of the vilest people around. Andy Hamilton stars as Satan in the comedy that's satirical, philosophical, inventive, topical - and timeless.

A great show

I love this show. Series one introduces the Prof, as well as Scum Spawn and Thomas Crimp and the Devil himself. Following the adventures of Satan as he tries to convince the Professor that Hell is not just an illusion caused by a coma, each episode is full of gags and topical humour.

Some of the jokes may be a little dated but 9 out 10 hit the mark even today.

An absolute joy to listen to and cant wait to get the rest of this series.

Andy Hamilton is a genius

Thomas is a wonderful character. I have met a few like him in my time. Satan and Gary hilarious and the professor so smug and fantastically annoying. I can really recommend it had me laughing out loud.

A cheerful Devil ?

Super comedy,well crafted and well presented. In the episodes we discover that people we wouldn't expect to be are in hell, and God has a first name. The Devil tries very hard to convince a new resident that he really is in Hell.

A rainy day pick-you-up

Some very funny moments and situations.
It didn't have me splitting my sides but was funny and definately worth a listen.

I almost know it word for word now

I love this show I own them all yet every time they are on the radio I listen too. I have listened to them that many time I almost know the script myself yet I never get sick of hearing them.

The characters are well written funny and likeable which says a lot when one is Satan and one is Thomas the most despicable man to have ever lived.

Cannot recommend this enough to anyone lucky enough not to have heard it before 7 series of fun await you.

Just Brilliant - what more can be said

Where does Old Harry's Game rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the best I've listened to - and I listen time and again

What was one of the most memorable moments of Old Harry's Game?

I love the part where Thomas realises that he has arrived in hell

What about Andy Hamilton’s performance did you like?

Andy Hamilton's "poker faced" (yes I know it's an audio book) delivery of some side splitting one liners is wonderful

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I've listended to it in one sitting at least half a dozen times

Any additional comments?

Do buy it. And if you like it, buy the others

Hilarious from beginning to end

The genius of Andy Hamilton. There are seven series and a Christmas special, all absolutely first class. Superbly witty, brilliantly performed, a must-have for the collection.

Leaves You Wanting More

It's Andy Hamilton's clever, and understated, humour.

Its unpretentious style means that you don't have to stress about missing a line or two, it still works.

I was disappointed that I couldn't find more audiobooks by Andy Hamilton - hope they have made some since.

Old Harry at his best

Would you consider the audio edition of Old Harry's Game to be better than the print version?

Outstanding first series of comic genius Andy hamiltons comedy series.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Without doubt the Devil played by Mr Hamilton is the best character of the in the book.

What does Andy Hamilton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

His dry wit and sharp humour.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did listen to it in one sitting!

Any additional comments?

I will have no hesitation to buy second series
