Well Martin Jarvis is more active at Radio Four as a producer than an actor,so those in charge do seem to continue to favour him in that role. The Afternoon Plays that he and his missus had a hand in ...

Not exactly a Christmas gift, but the December 9th broadcast of the Van Der Valk play "King Of The Rainy Country" a first for Radio4 Extra, is a welcome 90 minutes in the company of Martin J ...

Yes, last Christmas at the end of series 8 of McLevy they did mention they will be back for a new one this year.

Yes the period crime stories do have a fascination with me too, the "London Pa ...

"The Windbear" has joined the Radio 4 Extra series of plays, so it will crop up again, it is especially interesting to me living in Isleworth where the action takes place, the planes passing ...
