The Experiences of an Irish RM: Classic Serial 05-10-2008 12-10-2008

Christopher Fitz-Simon's two-part adaptation of the comic novels of Somerville and Ross, set in late-19th century Ireland.

From The Telegraph

I love the works of Somerville and Ross, the Anglo-Irish female cousins (and possibly lovers) who wrote about what they knew - Anglo-Irish life in late-19th-century Ireland. Yet I know lots of people who hate them, and I can understand why. This is the Ireland of rogues and good hearts, of hunting and social hierarchies, they say, all too diddly-de-dee for its own good. They will then chide me for sentimentality plus a peasant tendency to grovel whenever there's a proper gentleman about.

We will, therefore, divide sharply over the new Sunday Classic Serial on Radio 4, wrongly entitled The Experiences of an Irish RM, wrongly because the real title is Some Experiences of an Irish RM, and the sequel is Further Experiences of…, but that's not good enough for the prigs of Radio 4, who can't believe anyone actually still reads such books. They did the same for The 39 Steps, inserting female characters to bring John Buchan a bit more up to date with his gender balances.

It won't do. Classics, however little they fit new sensibilities, deserve proper representation. Major Yeates, Mrs Cadogan and Flurry Knox are robust comic characters and Christopher Fitz-Simon's adaptation does them proud, as does Eoin O'Callaghan's production for the most part (for the lesser part, he has a terrible tendency to put music, and very diddle-de-dee music it is here, under dialogue: a distraction and a waste of good actors).

If you do not care for the works of Somerville and Ross, nothing I say will convert you. If you do, you'll love Alex Jennings as the Major and Marion O'Dwyer as his housekeeper, the peerless Mrs Cadogan. Let October winds rattle the windows: we are safe in West Cork in such company.

By Gillian Reynolds
