Delighted to have recently worked on a Radio Times commission for the Radio 4 series "Old Harry's Game". Written by Andy Hamilton.
"This two-part special inspired by the unavoidable and almost upon-us Olympic Games. Satan (the devilishly good Andy Hamilton) has seen it all before, ever since 776BC to be precise. Fellow inmate Edith (Annette Crosbie) the historian who who apparently committed suicide while watching Midsummer Murders, is delighted by the prospect. Satan has no choice but to correct her rose tinted view and carts her off to meet the Ancient Greek Olympics committee. They are all in hell, and we soon understand why. (lets hope the same same fate does not await Sebastian Coe). Next week's edition returns the wretched underworld losers to 2012. Satan agrees to take Edith to the London Olympics, but its more a case of going for Gehenna than Gold."
Great fun to revisit this character again for Old Harry's Game. To be broadcast Thursday 12th July. Can be seen in the current edition of the Radio Times, out on newsstands today:
