Publisher's Summary

Vincent Franklin, Rebekah Staton, Kieron Hodgkin and Julia Deakin star in four episodes of the BBC Radio 4 sitcom written by Jack Bernhardt.

Welcome to The Lentil Sorters, a sitcom set in the Office of Local & National Statistics which, depending on who you ask, is either where the real power of government resides or the place where fun goes to die.

In 'Standard Deviation' the team uncover an unexpected statistical correlation between eyebrows, strawberries and dangerous dogs....

In 'Multiparameter Database Search', a database linking of Ribena and MI5 makes Graham reach for his Stress Cardigan.

In 'Researcher Bias' Daniel and Audrey fight over the Welfare State with the aid of a can of strong lager, a fake police uniform and a beloved British character actor.

And in 'False Positives' a stag do, a stats conference and a blood test all combine to make Graham's life substantially worse.

With special guests Steve Brody, Phil Whelans, Charlie Quirke, Morgan Jones and Jo Unwin as The Narrator. Written by Jack Bernhardt and produced by David Tyler. A Pozzitive Production for BBC Radio 4.

Light entertainment

This was light entertainment - I'll probably listen to it again some time in the future.

One of the best shows

This (along with Cabin Pressure) are the best shows I have found on Audible. I have listened to at least six times!

2045

Death sept over the land. a dead body lay on the ground
Crows had picked of its face.
The cdc can not stop it.
God can.
But he is dead.
And the last flower is gone.

Quirky and funny

If you could sum up Lentil Sorters in three words, what would they be?

Quirky, strangely compelling.

Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favourite?

All characters stand up well.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes and have listened to all four episodes several times.

Great.

Took a punt on this one and wasn't disappointed. Hope there's going to be another series.
