Join Anthony Head, Richard Johnson, Geoffrey Whitehead, Tom Allen, Sarah Hadland and David Mitchell in the second volume of this magnificent Dickensian comic epic first transmitted by the British Broadcasting Club's Radio 4. Volume two of "Bleak Expectations" follows Pip Bin as he ventures through Victorian Britain in constant battle with his evil and badly named ex-guardian Mr. Gently Benevolent. On the way he builds a national railway network, blows up parliament, joins an East End gang, smokes a lot of opium, gets married twice and takes on the might of the Martian army. Revel in the many fine quips, characters and scenarios in these six glorious episodes written by Mr. Mark Evans and produced by Mr. Gareth Edwards, previously renowned for their craftsmanship on the works of Messrs. Mitchell and Webb. '...enough one-liners to stock an entire series of most sitcoms...the comedy show of the year' - "Times".
