Happy all 7 dramatisations are in one collection

I love all the bbc radio dramatisations of not only P. D. James but also of Agatha Christie however I had them on CDs from years ago and were therefore harder to access . Now that all of P D James radio dramatisations are in the one collection , it is far more convenient to listen to them and therefore more pleasurable to listen to . in fact I was missing a couple of the PD James dramatisations so I now have a complete set .And the dramatisations are superbly done .

Love These Dramatisations

The books are brought to life and are just the right length. PD James interviews are interesting and worth listening to.

Desert Island drama

This collection is a treat. Sîan Phillips, Anna Massey, and many other brilliant actors shine throughout nearly seventeen hours of dramatised James. I particularly enjoyed Robin Ellis in the role of Dalgliesh. Although I knew whodunnit in these stories because
I’ve been a James fan since I was a young teenager, I still loved listening to the mysteries as they unfolded once more. I highly recommend this to anyone who loves a good British mystery with beautifully done dramatisations from talented actors.
