Satan may rule the roost, but he's beset by the poor unfortunates condemned to sit out Eternity with him. Amongst them is the Professor, who is convinced that societies evolve and mature until Satan introduces him to Bill Clinton.
There's also Scumspawn, with his large expanse of nothingness between the ears, as was always expected and as for Satan himself, he is persuaded to attempt to improve his image on Earth, to remake Casablanca (with Bogart, Bergman and a mutant alien) and starts a football match in Hell which invokes God to send a couple of Archangels down to see what all the fuss is about.

What made the experience of listening to Old Harry's Game the most enjoyable?
This series manages to combine some seriously silly schoolboy jokes with the thought provoking nature of Dante's Inferno. but it's much more fun than you might expect, It is clever, arch, silly, but with lots of unexpected plot twists. Andy Hamilton's writing is on top form. A great audio recording, excellent quality with great sound effects... the clip clop of Satan's hooves make me laugh every time!
Who was your favorite character and why?
My favourite character is Satan: "Master of Flesh and Ruler of the Abyss". He's bubbling with sly witticisms, and has a sneaking respect for The Professor, an atheist with a good heart, who is condemned to hell by the caprice of a sulking God (who he doesn't believe in). The professor is also sharing eternal damnation with Jane Austen, Will Shakespeare, and a whole host of demons,(amongst them Gary and Scumspawn) popes, tax collectors, and many other people you would expect to find in the "Other Place".
Have you listened to any of Andy Hamilton and Jimmy Mulville ’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Having bought the first two series of this comedy, I was eager for more. This doesn't disappoint.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I found it funny and thought provoking.
Any additional comments?
To quote another review from TV tropes… The show is lighter and funnier than it sounds, and usually manages to avoid being Anvilicious in its handling of weighty philosophical issues.

laugh out load entertainment
The actors are great, really better than a lot of movies who get awards. I have listened over and over just for the one liners which bring a smile. You won't need a lot of knowledge of culture, just some broad outlines of life and death. really worth every dime

The fun Continues
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, depends on your humour but this is good old clean funny. I highly recommend getting a few seasons and if you like the first few episodes .. if you like them get all the series as with the exception of season 7 they are all excellent, season 7 good just not quite the same and a little more repetition .
