Listen to the last episode:

In this episode, Tim, Jon, Martin and James continue their review of the brilliant radio episode A Sunday Afternoon at Home.  After discussion on Sykes, outtakes, fluffs and the various Doctors Who. The gang resume the main subject and look at how the cast really brought the words on the page to life with the different vocal styles and tones used throughout the episode and consider the episode to be a masterclass in acting and writing. They also look at how the brilliant Galton and Simpson  played back real events in Hancock's life with superb comic effect, consider Kenneth Williams' portrayal of Clark as his greatest characterisation in the series and discuss Hattie Jacques' significant contribution to the episode. The team suggest that they may quite like this episode by giving it a score of 11 out of 10 but Kevin McNally, who joins us once again to discuss his views on the episode, surpassed us all by scoring it 10 out of 4!
