Start to Seasonal Reading

Bleak Expectations: The Complete BBC Radio 4 Series - Macmillan Digital Audio, Raquel Cassidy, Anthony Head, Mark Evans, Celia Imrie, Jane Asher, Geoffrey Whitehead, Richard Johnson, David Mitchell

With the Festive Tasks in full swing, Halloween reads behind me, and the end of the year in sight, I'm turning to seasonal reads. 


While Bleak Expectations is obviously a spoof on Dickensian works and themes, and while I am not a fan of Dickens (tho I still want to read A Tale of Two Cities), the programme is brilliant and has had me laughing out loud all morning. There is a stellar cast here who bring out the silly while still keeping the tone in line with what I expect from a Dickensian tragedy.


Oh, and Anthony Head - already a firm favourite - playing the arch nemesis is priceless.
