This review is from: An Inspector Calls (Classic Radio Theatre) (Audio CD)This is the second audiobook in the BBC Classic Radio Theatre series to feature a play by J B Priestley and is a distinct improvement on the first (Time and the Conways). Originally broadcast on Radio 4 in May 2010 it boasts an ideal cast with Toby Jones absolutely right as the mysterious Inspector Goole. It is he who exposes the well-heeled, middle-class Birling family headed by industrialist Arthur Birling (David Calder) as complicit in the suicide of a young working-class girl. Priestley's classic morality play has never sounded better on radio and the director, Jeremy Mortimer, is especially good in establishing the cosily complacent atmosphere of the opening scene and in controllng the essential dynamics of the play. A special word of praise to Morven Christie, who is perfect as Sheila Birling. For some reason the running time is given as 2 hours 40 minutes when it is actually no more than 1 hour 30 minutes.
