I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to these five plays again. Not only are the scripts well-written, but the actors are phenomenal. (Penelope Wilton, Maxine Peake, Tom Goodman-Hill are gifted with such versatility, though all the cast members are good).
There are three sets of voices, a hierarchy, if you will: northern, posh, and American. At first it was a little distracting, but I soon got used to it. Interesting choices, to be sure!
You're sure to enjoy these stories based on the Gospel of Luke, and appreciate the way the plays bring Christ's ministry to life.

Would you listen to Witness (Dramatised) again? Why?
Yes, I am listening to Witness for the second time. The writing and performance give these stories from Luke's gospel such a sense of reality and makes them come to life for me in a a very personal way.
The historical commentary that follows each play is also fascinating and enlightening.
I decided to listen to the stories again during Holy Week.
What about the narrators’s performance did you like?
I came across Witness when searching for something else narrated by Peter Firth (after listening to hem do Tess of the d'Ubervilles). His portrayal of Peter in Witness is superbly done. Satan's role is also well done.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Witness really brings the characters from Luke's gospel to life. I have found myself recommending this to several friends.
