Neil Gaiman's obviously had a lot of fun writing this small piece, and that fun is contagious. Helped by Christina Pickles's priceless delivery, that story of an old lady picking up the Holy Grail for a few pence at Oxfam packs tons of humour and emotion in 27 short minutes. Being more of a "laughing inside" audience, I found myself chuckling like an idiot with my earphones on. Highly recommended.
