A comedy radio play is always good fun, but isn’t it satisfying to get to know the characters a little better? Fans of Cabin Pressure and Wooden Overcoats will love our collection of multipart audio sitcoms.
Purdy and Chase is a laugh-a-minute four part comedy series featuring enthusiastic novice private eyes Pen Purdy and Daisy Chase. Mounted on grumpy lady cycle Margot, they fearlessly tackle the insurance fraudsters and nice hotels of small town Wexton. Drayton Trench, diminutive detective, is on the case of a missing uncle. Based in a semi-converted phonebook, she will stop at nothing to find him. From the pen of David K Barnes, writer of Wooden Overcoats. Gino Ginelli, meanwhile, is very much dead, leaving his estranged sons to go back to the seaside town they grew up in and pick up the pieces of his business empire.
If ancient Rome in the style of Frankie Howerd is more your scene, Ray Galton and John Antrobus have a treat for you, in the form of ‘Not Tonight Caligula‘. The audio equivalent of a carry on film.
