Customer Review

3.0 out of 5 stars A few interesting moments but mostly forgettable, 18 April 2012
This review is from: Stephen Fry on the Phone (Audio CD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This short series is not Steve Fry at his best. What we get are 4 episodes of short but fairly interesting interviews with some of the men (sorry ladies, apparently this sort of engineering is another boys only club) who made mobile networks and phones what they are today, padded out with some pretty lame thematic archive comedy clips. Sorry but not even Stephen Fry could save this one, it's definitely not a keeper.

However, I was also sent for review the AudioGo release of Stephen Fry Does the Knowledge, which I really recommend - so if you're looking for some archive clips strung together by Mr Fry's unique narration I would check that out first and come back for this if and only if that particular itch still needs scratching.
