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.

Expectations exceeded

I came late to the Bleak Expectations series having missed it on Radio 4 but after a few friends praised it I thought I would give it go on Audible. I wasn't disappointed and chuckled my way through the cod-melodrama of seasons one and two; particularly enjoying the moustach-twizzling evil of Anthony Head. The third series is the strongest to date and won't disappoint. Do start at the beginning if you have never listened before, you won't be sorry.
