Publisher's Summary

Trevor Peacock stars as ancient, earthy, inspired chef Warwick Hedges, in Series 1 of the comedy drama set in an idiosyncratic restaurant in the Cambridgeshire Fens. In these four episodes, a mysterious young man brings his mother for a special meal; Warwick drives his son mad with his constant interference in the kitchen; the dark tale of the twisted eel seems about to repeat itself; and Jack asks his nephew to take care of things so he can get away for a few weeks.

Captures the true strangeness of the Fens

Would you listen to On Mardle Fen (Complete Series 1) again? Why?

Well written, more blackish comedy/drama than plain comedy but all the better for it. Sparingly written at the right times (the Fens are a spare land) but comedic when it needs to lighten the mood and well-observed when not.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Samuel says very little and often imparts meaning by what he doesn't say. A genuine Fen sound to his accent rather than the ridiculous local-yokel faux Dorset that most TV and Radio think of as Fen (presumably because they rarely leave the confines of Broadcasting House or Notting Hill).

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The denouement of the final episode when David realises his carefully laid plans have come to naught.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I live in the Cambridgeshire Fens and although Mardle Fen is fictional it's probably not far from Sutton Gault by my reckoning. Reminds me of where I'm from when I'm on the long commute into the TOWIE land that is Essex.

Love it!

This is so relaxing to listen to! Just lie back and let the story unfold. Nick Warburton is a supremely good storyteller. Horrible old Warwick is a marvellous creation. He owns a restaurant on Mardle Fen, which he runs with his son. But, years before they cheated Warwick's other child out of her share of the restaurant, and when her son discovers this he seeks them out, and plots his revenge. So well acted. A real treat.
