Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

Um... for a book (and this radio play) set in London, and London Below... why would anyone expect the cast to be anything except English?

He's from Glasgow, originally, and I think the US show you're referring to is actually the X-Men movies!

I was surprised at just how many of the cast of 'Band of Brothers' were British or non-American! :shock:

Just an example. ;)

But why have the first episode on Radio 4 which I can listen to on any radio in the house and then all the remaining episodes on Radio 4 extra which is digital so I can only hear it via my laptop. :roll:

Digital reception is rubbish down here in the gorge so it's internet or nothing.
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Doesn't your laptop move around the house?

Not on it's own.

Actually it doesn't move much, the power cable is looped down behind my desk to a surge protected socket as the electric supply here can be pretty variable (I get through 6 or 7 lightbulbs a month) and as it's an old Dell the battery doesn't last long anymore and they want £175 for a new one which frankly is more than the laptop is worth. It may be a laptop but it may as well not be for all the portability it effectively has.
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..
