This week we continue the comedy series that may best be described as “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
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, Ripely Fecund
Geoffrey Whitehead — various invariably‐doomed members of the Clampvulture family.

This week “An Alrightish Life Savagely Frozen to Bits” and “A Writerly Life Made Dreadfully Different”.

Pip races to Antarctica to thwart another fiendish plot by his evil ex‐guardian, Mr Gently Benevolent. Then Pip and Charles Dickens engage in a novel‐writing showdown to find out who is the greatest writer in Britain.
