A copy of this \"appeared\" on my computer as well, but haven\'t listened to it yet either.

I\'m with you, I prefer to hear it all at one time. Some folks on the R7 boards were quite excited about it being on, but they didn\'t get into specifics, as I recall.

If I may add, PAW, we are also in process of cleaning up the Radio portions of the boards.

A lot of these conversations were taking place when we were trying to figure out how the moderator functions worked, and as you know, conversations can drift quickly to silliness without input from other posters. So, if you can bear with us a bit, these superfluous conversations in the radio area should be deleted, and it will be easier to follow a more Radio oriented line.

Starting new topics, in the more serious Radio area, is always helpful too. They have a better chance staying pristine if they\'re new. But the Subjects area is kind of designed to be a more loose atmosphere, something I think the R7 boards lacked. Hopefully, both can peacefully co-exist.

Anyway, glad your here, and post, post, post! :)

It\'s almost always that way for me too, Ivor. I\'ve read most of them more than once (although the Sittaford Mystery was either a new or forgotten one).

One thing about Agatha, I don\'t believe she ever cheated. The clues were all there by the time her detective solved the mystery. I hate it when mystery writers stick some out of the blue character or clue in at the last minute. It\'s dirty pool in my book.

I agree wholeheartedly! I\'m missing these already. I\'d settle for repeats of the others again, but you lot may be bored with them by now.

Oh, me too! He sort of drags out his words too, and the effect is quite suspenseful.

It really is remarkable. He is the perfect reader for it, and now that I\'ve heard him, I couldn\'t imagine anyone else doing it. Does he do Rogue Justice as well?

You know, I think I\'d heard that about ACD on the special they did a while back, and I thought it was in an old interview with his son. But my memory is touch and go, so it could have been anywhere or.....nowhere.

I\'m loving this program! Thanks Ivor for recommending this. I probably wouldn\'t have listened to this one otherwise. This is why the Calendar is such a great idea.

Flowers and chocolates!

Generally speaking, I don\'t get offended that easily. Taste is taste. What suits one, doesn\'t suit another. Remember, I\'m one of the idiots that likes GK (:P) (see R7 board for further GK clarification).

It would be a boring world if we all liked the same thing. :)

I\'ve just listened to the last episode, \'The Ferrers Documents\'. Surely, I wasn\'t the only one to spot the murderer, early on. I won\'t be a spoiler, in case there is anybody reading that hasn\'t heard it yet. Notice that, no mention of gender, so they\'re all possibles.

Do you think that ACD deliberately left the little clues that Bert Coules is picking up on, in order to do the same thing that Bert has done, should ideas dry up in his old age?


Yeah, I got it pretty early too, but I didn\'t mind. I really love these productions.

It sure seems ACD left himself room to expand. Although, I think I heard somewhere he didn\'t mind others taking his characters on new adventures. Sounds like he was a class act that way.

I haven\'t listened to these yet (though, some-evil-force, put them on my computer for future listening ;)). I find it hard to believe that Mr. Jackson felt he could get Biblical instruction through a radio production. You have to know that when you\'re watching or listening to a production, it ain\'t like the book. I would have thought that, as a critic, he would have understood this, and taken it for what it was intended. I also, find it hard to believe that he thought reading two chapters of the Bible would give him understanding of these stories. It would be like taking two chapters out of any book and being surprised at not understanding what the thing was about.

I agree, Tru, that productions of these kind sometimes incline the listener/viewer to learn more about the subject. I think this is true not only for Biblical, but other historical programs, as well.

I\'m looking forward to listening to these even more now. Thanks!
