Summary

Stephen Fry, Daniel Rigby and Tamsin Greig star in all three series of the poignant BBC Radio 4 comedy drama.
Warhorses of Letters is the world's finest and best-loved equine, military, epistolary romance, comprising the newly discovered love letters between two horses united by passion but cruelly divided by conflict.
Set against the sweeping backdrop of the Napoleonic Wars, these 12 episodes introduce us to Copenhagen, the Duke of Wellington's frisky young racehorse, and his hero, Marengo, the seasoned, famous and just-a-little-bit-short mount of Emperor Napoleon.
From the early days of the Peninsular Campaign to the Battle of Waterloo and its aftermath, we follow our horse heroes as their romance blossoms, their fortunes fluctuate and uncertainty and jealousy put strains on their burgeoning relationship. Can they ever be truly together, or are they doomed to remain sundered by fate?
Written by Robert Hudson and Marie Phillips, this moving, surreal comedy stars Stephen Fry as Marengo and Daniel Rigby as Copenhagen, with Tamsin Greig as the narrator. Totally unique and utterly entertaining, it will appeal to all lovers of horses, history and humour.
Duration: 2 hours, 50 mins approx.

Marvellous radio

Funny and well played, an inventive series that manages to be very compelling listening. I would highly recommend as a listen that you can drop in and out of.

Short but very sweet

Beautiful, hilarious and brilliantly narrated. A complete gem of a story. Well worth a listen.
