Fabulous: The Complete Series 1-3: A BBC Radio full-cast comedy

Fabulous: The Complete Series 1-3: A BBC Radio full-cast comedy

Faye Walters knows that today's women are sorted and stylish. They have the job, the house, the colour co-ordinated capsule wardrobe. They cope with the pressures of singledom, marriage and having kids with peanut-allergies. And they all do it effortlessly, with nothing more than a women's mag and a poem by Pam Ayres to guide them. So why can't she pull it off? Everything would be fabulous if only she could wangle an invitation to her boss's wedding, buy a flat with her boyfriend and get her mum to loan her £10,000. But even with a new kitchen, an awards ceremony and her own engagement party to look forward to, she's still anxious. And life only gets more nerve-wracking as she prepares for a royal visit at work and her hen do - especially since she's having serious doubts about whether she wants to get married at all... Starring Daisy Haggard (Breeders, Back to Life) as ditsy, neurotic Faye, this quirky comedy features a stellar cast including Katy Brand as Denise, Olivia Colman and Melanie Hudson as Edith, Laura Solon as Kim and Justin Edwards as Mark. Among the guest stars are Adam Buxton, Margaret Cabourn-Smith and Mark Lamarr.

Dirk Gently: Two BBC Radio full-cast dramas: Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency and The Long Da

Dirk Gently: Two BBC Radio full-cast dramas: Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency and The Long Da

Author: Douglas Adams Narrator: Billy Boyd, Harry Enfield, Jan Ravens, Olivia Colman, Peter Davison Release Date: 01/12/2019

The complete BBC Radio collection bringing together two full-cast dramatisations of Douglas Adams's Dirk Gently novels. In Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency Dirk Gently has an unshakeable belief in the interconnectedness of all things, but his Holistic Detective Agency mainly succeeds in tracking down missing cats for old ladies. Then Dirk stumbles upon an old friend behaving bizarrely - and he's drawn into a four-billion-year-old mystery that must be solved if the human race is to avoid immediate extinction. In The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul Harry Enfield exuberantly returns as Dirk Gently, who, fallen on hard times and dressed as a gypsy woman, is using his irritatingly accurate clairvoyant powers to read palms. He is saved when a frantic client turns up with a ludicrous story about being stalked by a goblin waving a contract accompanied by a hairy, green-eyed, scythe-wielding monster. When Detective Superintendent Gilks decides a headless body found in a sealed room is the result of a particularly irritating suicide, Dirk is plunged into a mystery where the interconnectedness of all things is tested to the limit... Starring Harry Enfield as Dirk Gently along with Billy Boyd, Olivia Coleman, Andrew Sachs and Jim Carter. Guest stars include Peter Davison (Doctor Who), Jan Ravens (Dead Ringers), Philip Jackson (Poirot), John Fortune (Bremner, Bird & Fortune), Morwenna Banks (Absolutely) and Stephen Moore (The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy).
