A Victorian epic of awful schools inc the aptly named St Bastards, worse prisons, nuns at St Bitches, giant rabbits, and long lost super-hero aunts, in the style of Charles Dickens after far too much gin.
If you liked Blackadder then this historial romp is very much up your street.

Dicken's with tonque firmly in cheek
I've been eagerly waiting for the BBC to release this ever since it was first broadcast. I'm not a Radio 4 drama person at all but I came across this by accident and it made me howl with laughter. The comparison with Blackadder is very much deserved. This is a great yarn with a fabulous cast (Anthony Head is a true gem), and perfect for anyone who is fan of Dickens and Victorian sensational and sentimental novels.
Great gags, love, loss, friendship, mystery and of course, the obligatory 'evil genius', what more could anyone want? Brilliant.

Genius, at last
For anyone who can no longer laugh at the spiteful PC 'observation' ramblings of most current comedy. Here it is! The solution, something to make you remember how much you enjoyed clever humour. If you love early Eddie Izzard, Harry Enfield, Alan Partridge or I'm sorry I haven't a clue. Then buy these and savour them one at a time...
If you are a comedy writer, listen, learn, think positive and create something new..
