in Daily Programme

by Edward Pearse on Thursday, 19 April, 2012

Bleak Expectations: “Charles Dickens meets The Goon Show.”

Written by Mark Evans, more recently known for the TV series The Bleak Old Shop of Stuff

Starring Richard Johnson — Sir Philip (“Pip”) Bin

Tom Allen — Young Pip

Susy Kane — Pippa Bin

Anthony Head — Mr Gently Benevolent; Jeremy Sourquill

James Bachman — Harry Biscuit

Laurence Howarth — Mr Skinflint Parsimonious

Mark Evans — Mr Wyckham-Post-Forburton.…, Thomas’ lawyer whose full name took 20 minutes to say and to whom — since he charged by the hour — “his name was his greatest asset”; Revd Supermarket; Waiter; Dr Cure-Some-By-Chance; sundry boys, gentlemen and chavvies

Sarah Hadland — Lily, Sir Phillip’s daughter

Geoffrey Whitehead — the entire dynasty of various evil families with equally unpleasant names.

This week “A Youth Utterly Crocked” and “A Young Adulthood Bitterly Dismantled”.

Pip must thwart the plans of his evil guardian Mr Gently Benevolent. Can underwater squirrels, oddly placed church bells and a stint in the workhouse foil him in his noble quest? Or will Aunt Lily and her Gloucestershire racing cows save the day?
