Shooting Stars

Simon Brett's Charles Paris stories are always sheer delight, especially when performed for the BBC with Bill Night his lugubrious, worldly self. Funny, quirky and seeped in behind the scenes acting and family rivalries, they are a joy not to be missed. This one is no exception.
Worth every penny/ credit.

Another Charles Paris triumph!

Jeremy Front is a genius at updating Simon Brett's Charles Paris for a modern radio audience; Bill Nighy is superb at extracting the maximum louche appeal from the title character, and Susanne Burden is a perfect foil for his accidental adventures. I hope the BBC commission more adaptations - and when they do, that Audible publishes them!
