  1. Thanks for the link to the Thorndyke series. I just listened to and enjoyed the first episode. I have a book of the short stories on my one of my TBR stacks but haven't read any for ages.

    1. your welcome Joan! They are delicious aren't they! and only 15 minutes out of our time.

  2. I listened to Toby Stephens as Philip Marlowe two years ago. I'm definitely going to check out these Dr. Thorndyke episodes. Thanks for the info and the link.

    1. your welcome John! I get the newsletter from BBC Radio so I don't miss anything!

  3. This sounds better than listening to books on tape!
