These low-key BBC productions are always high value, as Father Baldi, soul-searching philosopher, takes us through slices of contemporary society, solving not only crimes but his own frailties. Very reminiscent of Chesterton's Father Brown.

A different listening experience, TV of the mind!
What made the experience of listening to The Father Paolo Baldi Mysteries: Death Cap & Devil Take the Hindmost (BBC Radio Crimes) the most enjoyable?
The voices of the different characters were easy to follow & kept the story flowing. I usually listen to unabridged versions & thought a dramatization would be easier to catch on to the story. But it is an entirely different beast. The fad outs for scene shifts, the background noises, & lack of narrative descriptions are dramatization techniques I had to become familiar with to enjoy the stories. And enjoy I did. These are clean, simply entertaining, Irish accented radio plays, on the par with other Simon Brett stories. I bought this title on an Audible sale & am glad I did.
