A must listen for anyone who enjoyed PGW back in the day or anyone who enjoys harking back to an Edwardian ambience and music. I imagined Hugh Lawrie and Stephen Fry as the lead characters and most of the other characters as portrayed in the teledrama but with a storyline much more faithful to the original. Radio drama is always better than an audible book, not only at catching the true essence of the story but also speeding the story along, avoiding some of the unnecessary flourishes of the author. Strongly recommended for light relaxation and good humour.
