Hancock fans may as well buy this otherwise...

If you are a Hancock fan I recommend you buy this regardless if this Sid James sounds like Robert Dorning. Sid does have this tough gruff side but there's no way Hancock would get conned by a thug tough teddy boy. However Sid had a friendly disarming tone which is why he was very good at conning people with a smile. He had a tough side but he didn't show it off and it would have ruined his con schemes anyway. This is a must have to hear these lost episodes otherwise its like a mystery novel with a final missing page. Now if only they could do the lost TV series as well. Ps I feel this Hancock could be a little slower with more poignant pauses like the Kenneth Williams character who is more Kenneth than Kenneth.

Why only one episode?

I think Judith Lucy is the funiest female ever, Denise Scott is really good too. They go well together, just no bs saying the tragedy as it is. Fantastic stuff.

I wonder whether this one had deliberate audio crackling in some of the episodes as a slight sabotage to flog the other small ones that only go 2 hrs. Eg this has the dog one, the aussie car offer millionaire one, girls go by, and rock band which are all flogged on another whole fools album with a better recording of them. Omg I would have been willing to get the smaller ones if they weren't copies of this one. I mean omg audible are worse than the Trotters at flogging something that was free with all these other ones on this one. Ie only get this one and if audible can do another batch of 20 different ones to this will I get another fools and horses one otherwise you're as good as a fool or a flogged horse haha. This is my fav sitcom and this one is the best horses one to get but I will get another dad's army audible after this cause they don't double up on their series recordings like fools and horses audible audios do.

Pity this second series doesn't have James Beck

I do love this album but I just wish it had Beck in it because both these radio series were done together or back to back i thought so if Beck was in the first radio series it must have been extremely unfortunate timing also for the radio plays.

Wtf i thought it would be a comedy festival.

Denise was great with Judith in disapointments but just reading a boring story didn't do it for me. Put me to sleep with cardboard characters that is more for kids yet they try and be clever and say its more for adults cause it has some naughty bits.. Aussie stereotypes, yawn.

I've changed my opinion now about immersive sound

I had no idea of immersive sound ie without headphones it sounds whoosh because your ears are hearing it in dif directions. However the make voice maybe mono only so you can hear him in all directions but the females may be in stereo or wide stereo with on left or right speaker only. If you play this without headphones and voices are garbled do strange things to how you hold your mobile ie above or below you upside down or about facing the other way and diagonal left upper or right lower etc until the female voice becomes audible at that direction from the uni microphones they speak from in one direction only. Otherwise only play this with headphones not just recommend it you actually have to so you don't have to keep moving it around like a moon to a planet to hear it in correct directions.
