Publisher's Summary

Here is the third volume of this magnificent, award-winning Dickensian comic epic, first transmitted by the British Broadcasting Club's Radio 4.
It's a Victorian epic of shenanigans at awful schools, worse prisons, featuring giant rabbits, and long lost super-hero aunts - in the style of Charles Dickens after far too much gin. Winner of the British Comedy Guide Editors' Award, volume three stars Anthony Head, Celia Imrie, Geoffrey Whitehead, Richard Johnson, Tom Allen, James Bachman and David Mitchell.
Revel in the many fine quips, characters and scenarios in these six glorious episodes written by Mr. Mark Evans and produced by Mr. Gareth Edwards, previously renowned for their craftsmanship on the works of Messrs. Mitchell and Webb.

Immense, clever, fast sharp fun. Get it

Any additional comments?

What can I say. I have all 3 seasons but it great.The story is creative and hilarious, add the Dickensian style and it just gets funnier. The language is sharp and witty and you often miss a joke for the sheer slickness of the delivery. If you like sharp clever language you will love this. A bit like Stephen Fry on speed. And goodness, the Admiral on his flagship, the HMS Ggghhhrrrrrr !!! Get it and annoy your colleagues with the best one liners ever. The books are comic genius, I know, I have spent so long looking for something like this.

Fantastic series, I wish there was more

I just love the surreal humour, reminiscent of the Goon Show, and the whole cast does a great job!
