Ed Reardon Series 3 – Coming Soon

Regular readers will know that I’m an enormous fan of Ed Reardon’s Week.
The paperback of what’s effectively the first series recently came out, and with any luck, next March should see the release of the CD of series one.
But more imminently, at 11.30am on Friday 15 December, the first of six episodes of series 3 is broadcast on Radio 4.
BBC Radio 4 dips back into the world of Ed Reardon – writer and liver of life at the cutting edge. Or above The Cutting Edge, to be accurate. Ed has lived on his own in a one-bedroom flat above a hairdresser in Berkhamsted since his wife and grown-up kids left him, forcing the sale of the London home.
The regular cast return for this new series of the comedy, with: Christopher Douglas as Ed; John Fortune as his agent, Felix; Phillip Jackson as Jaz Milvane; Sally Hawkins as Felix’s assistant, Ping; and Stephanie Cole, Geoffrey Whitehead and Rita May as the Pensioners. There are guest appearances from a wealth of acting talent including David Warner, Morwenna Banks and Sean Lock.
