Hurrumble! Bleak Expectations returns!

Published on

My secret BBC contacts have let slip that a third series of the excellent radio series Bleak Expectations is being recorded next month.

I already have season 1 and have just ordered a high quality copy of season 2 so that I can remind myself of what has gone before, and fill in the missing episode after a software failure stopped my PVR from recording the conclusion.

This show is described as being “in the style of Charles Dickens after too much gin” and is well worth a listen; the cast is excellent too, featuring Anthony Head and Geoffrey Whitehead.
