Two Pipe Problems

Michael Chaplin's drama returns to The Old Beeches retirement home for elderly thespians and the company of William and Sandy, two actors who still nurse a certain affectionate animosity towards one another since they starred as Holmes and Watson in a 1960s TV series.

Part 1 - The pair become embroiled in making sure that the course of true love does run smooth. It begins with a proposal of marriage, but they are once again pressed into service to solve a mystery. Just why does the bridegroom suddenly call the wedding off?

Sandy Boyle ...... Stanley Baxter
William Parnes ...... Richard Briers
Dolores Sweet ...... Julia McKenzie
Sir Trelawney Hope ...... John Rowe
Godfrey ...... Joseph Mydell
Mary Winter ...... Jillie Meers
Isadora Klein ...... Susan Wooldridge
Hugo ...... Stephen Critchlow

Frances Lass, Radio Times reviewer: The path of true love never runs smooth, even in Pinner's home for retired thespians, the Old Beeches, where those irascible partners, Sandy and William, spend their days being rude to each other and solving the odd mystery or two - just as they did when they played Holmes and Watson on TV in the 60s. Stanley Baxter as the Watsonian Sandy is the perfect foil for Richard Briers's Holmesian William and his gloriously bilious, acerbic put-downs. As sedately paced as a zimmer-frame user, yet packing enough plot punch to keep you guessing, the duo's latest outing is full of comedic nips and tucks. When love-struck Trelawney asks fellow Old Beeches resident Dolores to marry him, everyone is in a party mood. But when the groom pulls out at the last hurdle, William and Sandy get on the case to find out why. And why is that Nice Young Man so attentive to Dolores? There is another slice of octogenarian delight tomorrow.

Part 2 - Sandy appears in the Honours List, but a trip to Buckingham Palace to collect his award provides another mystery for the veteran sleuths to solve.

Sandy Boyle ...... Stanley Baxter
William Parnes ...... Richard Briers
Karen ...... Tracy Wiles
Postman ...... David Shaw-Parker
Charles, Equerry to HRH ...... Julian Rhind-Tutt
Doctor Mortimer ...... Geoffrey Whitehead
Marvin ...... Stephen Critchlow
Elsie ...... Linda Broughton

Directed by Marilyn Imrie

A Catherine Bailey production for BBC Radio 4.

Frances Lass, Radio Times reviewer: When Sandy gets a "gong from Brenda" for his services to charity, he and William go to Buckingham Palace for his investiture, where another mystery unfolds for the elderly sleuths. Elements include a jammed lift, a lost ceremonial sword, and a lot of anti-Royal comments from William. Trouble is, he's starting to lose his marbles, so how can he apply those observational abilities? As with yesterday's mystery, it is not so much the criminal as the human heart that lies at its centre. Who needs Precious Ramotswe when we have these two on the case? As British as cucumber sandwiches on a summer's day.


Suing Mr Spargo

By Christopher William Hill.

When a student gets abysmal A-level results, her parents attempt to sue her school. But who is really to blame?

Mike Spargo ...... Geoffrey Hutchings
Connie Young ...... Penelope Wilton
Harry Kitto ...... Philip Jackson
Gwen Kitto ...... Sylvestra Le Touzel
Harriet Kitto ...... Joannah Tincey
Kevin Childs ...... Sam Pamphilon
Colin Barnes ...... Simon Treves.


A King's Speech

By Mark Burgess. It is 1937, the day of the Coronation, and the newly-crowned George VI must broadcast to the nation and the empire - a terrifying prospect for perhaps the most notable Briton to have suffered from a stammer. This play focuses on the close working relationship between the King and his speech therapist.

King George VI ...... Alex Jennings
Queen Elizabeth ...... Joan Walker
Lionel Logue ...... Trevor Littledale
Myrtle Logue ...... Moya O'Shea
Sir John Reith ...... Crawford Logan
Robert Wood ...... Chris Stanton
Patrick ...... John Evitts
Queen Mary ...... Jean Trend
Princess Elizabeth ...... Emma Yeomans
Princess Margaret ...... Agnes Fouch

Directed by David Blount.


On the Field - Endgame

A sequel to the comic drama On the Field about British troops in Iraq, by Annie Caulfield.

Life on the army base in Basra is closing down - they would all rather be in Afghanistan. Terry has got no money, the CO wants him to sing in a talent contest to boost morale and he has got woman trouble. But he is just about to get his lucky break.

Terry arrives, fresh to Basra, with his best mate, Connor. He wants to grow up and be a man for his girlfriend back home, who's about to give birth. But he struggles with the practical details of real life – like money – and gets into debt. And he'd rather be in Helmand fighting the Taliban – not in Basra.

Mundane fears wear away at the soldiers while they're expected to be heroic or believe in a new Iraq. They talk about overdrafts while bombs go off and are obsessed with getting a working water system in one block of Basra streets rather than saving the world for democracy. Terry and Connor talk sharp and like to look good – they're tough, but not tough enough for this life.

The CO wants Terry to sing a song in a talent contest, although he isn't keen – it doesn't seem the right time or place to be singing. When his girlfriend leaves him for a better prospect, however, Terry is devastated. And, when Connor is injured in a car bombing, Terry feels he's losing everything. However, Connor asks Terry to sing for him and he can't refuse.

He starts to sing Jimmy Cliff's reggae classic, The Harder They Come, to him in the hospital tent – a song of survival against the odds. When one of the men on the ward films the song on his phone and sends it back home, the musical clip turns into a YouTube hit and things begin to look up for Terry.

Mahmoud ...... Paul Chahidi
Terry ...... Ricardo Coke-Thomas
Padre ...... Stephen Critchlow
Conor ...... Rasmus Hardiker
Angie ...... Helen Longworth
Jocelyn ...... Endy McKay
Sgt Billy ...... Paul Mundell
CO ...... Paul Rider

Directed by Mary Ward-Lowery.
