Wonderful review - thanks, Andrew!

Andrew_Pixley :

Well... that all works very nicely. I have to admit that I was bit apprehensive before I heard it… mainly because I’d always enjoyed “The Goodies” in my childhood primarily as a visual, and it’s only in adulthood that I’ve relished how very smart the verbal content is as well.  As such, I wasn’t quite sure how the format would translate to radio, but this blend of the TV series with the smart media gags of "I’m Sorry, I’ll Read That Again" works extremely well.  Indeed, it’s emphasised to me  how very much overlap there is in terms of humour – notably puns and send-ups – between “The Goodies” and “ISIRTA”.

It was good to find so much topicality in there which was true to the original TV series – really mining some great gags and satirical barbs from the more absurd elements of the real world which we now live in. Having the approach of “The Goodies” humour applied to the modern world was rather refreshing – that lovely blend of daftness and satire which sort of defines the show at its best.

The character work was bang on as well, and the trio haven’t lost the timing that I’ve enjoyed so much over the years. I loved the fact that the script made it very, very clear that time had moved on and addressed it in all manner of very enjoyable ways; although it’s a continuation, everyone is very clear about the Goodies not having been quite as active in the last 40 years or so as they were previously. It’s a rich seam of good gags. 

Some very funny gags in there, story works very well, all moves along very nicely indeed.  Technically spot on as well.  Very, very enjoyable.  This is a series that has meant an awful lot to me, and to hear the Goodies back in action again has been massively enjoyable.

All the best

Andrew

'The Goodies: The Big Ben Theory', a new audio Goodies adventure, is now available from Audible!

http://www.audible.co.uk/pd/The-Goodies-Audiobook/B07YN6FSV2

Note for fans outside the UK: You may need to visit Audible's UK site in order to see the show.  When I clicked on the link in the US I saw this message at the top of the screen "Based on your location you have been directed to Audible.com.  Do you want to go to audible.co.uk?" Clicking on the audible.co.uk link took me to the show.

Also, I found this Audible FAQ with instructions for changing the settings in your Audible app to listen to purchases from Audible.UK (it is also possible to listen to the show via a browser and other methods).

Thanks to Barnaby Eaton-Jones for this information:

THE AUDIBLE GOODIES...

You can hear them soon. The 10th of October (the link will be posted that day).

Previously known as 'Live In Your Ear', 'The Big Ben Theory' is a corker of a new Goodies episode - as Graeme Garden explains:

"We've tried to stay close to The Goodies low-tech roots and this show has no computer generated images or 3D.

In fact, viewers in Scotland will only hear it in black and white."

THE GOODIES are back!

The Super Chaps Three return, after nearly 40 years, in a brand-new, hour-long, radio-style adventure brought to you by AUDIBLE ORIGINALS.

TIM BROOKE-TAYLOR, GRAEME GARDEN and BILL ODDIE climb back on their trandem, equipped with a fourth saddle for their special guest JOANNA LUMLEY, in a show full of Goodie-ness and recorded before a live studio audience.

As Parliament falls apart and sinister dictators threaten the world, Tim, Graeme and Bill must save the day.

They defeated Kitten Kong!
They stuffed the Funky Gibbon!
They invented Ecky Thump!

Can they save Parliament as well? 52% say yes. 48% say no. But, you just can't rely on statistics, can you?!

Starring TIM BROOKE-TAYLOR, GRAEME GARDEN & BILL ODDIE, with JOANNA LUMLEY. Featuring JON CULSHAW, KATE HARBOUR, PHILIP POPE and BARNABY EATON-JONES.

Music performed by ANDY RUSHTON, ANDREW FARRINGTON, CATH THOMAS and PAUL WOOD

Recorded by JERRY PEAL for AUDIBLE ORIGINALS

Written by GARETH GWYNN & JOHN-LUKE ROBERTS, with GRAEME GARDEN & BILL ODDIE

From an original story by BARNABY EATON-JONES

Executive Producer for Audible - SAM BRYANT

Produced by BARNABY EATON-JONES

Directed by DIRK MAGGS
