I knew what to expect when I downloaded this series - as I've listened to it when I can catch it on Radio 4. It's brilliant.
What I didn't expect, was how much my family would love it, too. My teenage girls play this when they wash up, or when we go out in the car. It's clever, hilarious and fantastic entertainment - and though risque at times, it's not crude.

Clare in the Community Series 1: My sister recently sent me this CD and I found myself laughing out loud in the street while listening on my i-pod. It sucks you right in from the beginning with strong narrative drive and great characterisation which plays on social stereotypes, while gently satirising social workers, teachers and the more ludicrous aspects of our increasingly PC world. Sally Phillips, who was so good in the TV series Smack the Pony, is perfect as the self-obsessed social worker bemused by her lack of popularity and oblivious to the needs of her long-suffering partner, Brian, her work colleagues and her clients. Her handling of her student Megan is hilarious, if slightly troubling! I?m definitely hooked and will be signing up for the subsequent series.

A decent enough listen to pass the time, it just wasn't as funny as I hoped.
