My 2 favourite detectives

Postby daniellesa » Fri Dec 16, 2016 10:12 pm

I've just been reading the Brother Cadfael chronicles again, when looking the series up on wikipedia, I discovered that Michael Kitchen narrated Dead Man's Ransom in 1995.

It would be so nice to hear that audio of the novel, as Foyle and Cadfael are my two favourite detectives.

Me too, I think they are both great. I can read the Cadfael Chronicles over and over. There's a wonderful book called 'Brother Cadfael's Book of Days' and it's a daily nugget of spiritual or material wisdom gleaned from the original books. Very readable!

It's not an audio book, Danielle; it's a dramatisation done for BBC Radio (Philip Madoc plays Cadfael). Mr K's narration gives background information and links the scenes; most of the recording is the drama. The audio cassette is available from Amazon UK; at the moment, a used but good copy can be obtained at a very low price. Here's the Amazon listing - on the page you can listen to a clip from the recording, and it begins with one of Mr K's bits of narration ... Amazon UK: Dead Man's Ransom audio cassette

A list of Mr K's radio recordings is on this board ... Michael Kitchen Forum: Voice sub-forum: Topic - radio recordings

There is also a list of audio books ... Michael Kitchen Forum: Voice sub-forum: Topic - audio books

Sorry, I meant dramatization.

I wonder if the BBC would replay it one day, they have done so with some Cadfael's, which I much enjoyed, but I must have missed this one when they last did so.
