It's OK

This version is a dramatisation of the two stories, featuring Penelope Keith. It's similar ot the other BBC Agatha Raisin radio drama series but not quite as good; fewer character voices and realistic sound effects. This is a huge improvement on the previous unabridged reading of the two titles on offer with Audible. The two other reviews on here refer to the old version.

Not the best

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I found the story in the second one obvious, which is unusual.

If you’ve listened to books by M. C. Beaton before, how does this one compare?

It wasn't the best one so far, but I still love the series.

Have you listened to any of Penelope Keith’s other performances? How does this one compare?

She is always wonderful.

Could you see Agatha Raisin: The Terrible Tourist and Fairies of Frylam (Dramatisation) being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

They have been on TV but the main characters were way too young. Ashley Jensen always great but too young for the part. Should have been someone like Celia Imrie for Agatha, even though she is slightly older. She would be perfect.

Any additional comments?

Can't wait to listen to more of these. Love them.
