BBC Thursday – 28th of April


Hello again! Today I’ve got only two dramas for you (not for the lack of trying, but I just didn’t find other ones interesting enough).

Today is a day of crime novels. Listening to them all will take only 4, which is not that much if you have something to do with your hands ;P.

1. Condition Purple (P Division #6) – Peter Turnbull

Chief Inspector Donoghue’s men are on the case when the body of a prostitute is found in Blythswood Square, in the heart of Glasgow’s prosperous business quarter.
Published in 1989, this is Peter Turnbull’s sixth P Division novel about his Glaswegian cops.

This is something I’ve only just started listening. It might be interesting. I’ve listened to the previous story in series and it was OK. A good drama to add to your daily dose of crime novels ;).

2. Agatha Christie’s stories

Magnolia Blossom – Theo is ready to leave her husband when a financial scandal intervenes. Mike Walker’s revamped whodunit starring Emilia Fox.
Philomel Cottage – When Alex meets Terry she’s swept off her feet. He persuades her to leave her job with a dot com company and set up a business with him – based in an out of the way cottage in the country…
In a Glass Darkly – A jealous lover is haunted by a fellow pilot’s death and a vision of murder. Mike Walker’s revamped whodunnit with Neil Dudgeon.
The Dressmaker’s Doll – A creepy doll with a mind of its own causes alarm along London’s catwalks. Mike Walker’s revamped whodunnit with Juliet Aubrey.

Here’s a set of 4 short stories from Agatha Christie. I admit I do like listening to the dramas based on her books. I’ve finally decided to go a step further and got myself two actual novels from Miss Marple series :). I do prefer her over Poirot.

Anyway, I’ve listened to 3 of these stories already and they were good, but not great. Still enjoyable, so give them a try. I did like the Philomel Cottage.

Happy listening!
