I liked itReviewed in the United Kingdom on 30 July 2015
Frederick Davidson reads like Kenneth Williams putting on a posh voice, which is fine by me. Recorded in 1993, so can we forgive him and the producer for using a "Jewish" accent for a minor character? Still, I wish he'd done more Simon Bretts. This is a wonderful satire of variety and television (written in the 70s).
Not Bill NighyReviewed in the United Kingdom on 30 January 2015
This consists of 6 disks read in a monotonous tone by Frederik Davidson, with a slight American accent and a perpetual sneer in his voice which he seems to think is an ironic tone. The packaging on the disks I received was dated 1993. I could not listen through to the end of even the first disk of this set. It is quite dreadful. I had not realised just how good Bill Nighy is. This is nothing like the BBC Charles Paris dramas.

a good taleReviewed in the United Kingdom on 13 August 2018
Not Bill Nighy I agree, but a good listen and intriguing tale.

Charles Paris at it againReviewed in the United Kingdom on 15 March 2014
Simon Brett's creation Charles Paris is so well written that one almost always knows what he'll do next ,but even so the depiction of theatre/radio life is believable. A good rainy day read.
