Publisher's Summary

BBC Radio 2's action-packed deafening romp - with 40 minutes of previously unbroadcast peril. Sexton Blake! The name that spells hurtling adventure! The name that spells doom for villainy! In a series of thrilling adventures packed with incident and hilarity, Sexton Blake, (Simon Jones, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy) and his plucky assistant Tinker (Wayne Forester, Captain Scarlet), aided by Mrs Bardell (June Whitfield, Absolutely Fabulous) battle diabolical masterminds, bewitching thieves and sinister fiends, out-thinking them in the head and out-punching them in the jaw! Also featured in this cinematic audio extravaganza from award-winning Dirk Maggs (The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy) is a cameo from BBC Radio's original Sexton Blake - the legendary and coolly dashing William Franklyn.

Delightful Audio Romp

Simon Jones as ever is terrifically entertaining, with perfectly timed dry English comic wit and delivery; supported by a cast equally (or exceedingly) zany and the mad genius Dirk Maggs who paints a lush sonic madhouse tied together with a few inexplicable mysteries and ne'er do wells. I don't know much of the history of the Sexton Blake character, but this revival will have you hooked and eager for more audio adventures!

Short but certainly worth the money

What other book might you compare The Adventures of Sexton Blake to and why?

It has the same feeling of utter (and entertaining) madness as the hitchhikers guide to the galaxy.
