Publisher's Summary

Miles Jupp stars as fussy food writer Damien Trench in the final series of the much-loved BBC Radio 4 sitcom.

Well-known cookery writer (and neurotic perfectionist) Damien Trench lives with his (rather more laid back) partner, Anthony, in Queen's Park, London. Damien longs for simple perfection in all things, but life has a habit of not quite working out the way he wants it to....

In these six episodes, Damien is offered the chance to present his own TV series about street food and persuaded to appear on a panel show and is forced to go to a music festival. He and Anthony rent a narrow boat for the weekend, look after a baby, and plan their wedding.

Beautiful ensemble comedy

I am a big Damien fan and I own all the other series on audio book also, so I this was not a blind purchase.
Not since Sue Townshend have a group of characters from an uptight and oblivious male's diary gripped me so.
Hilarious plots, jokes very densely packed and some of the best written support characters that I have ever had to joy of discovering.
Start with series one and work your way to the top. This gentle and yet acerbic comedy, for yes I do believe it is comedy, will not let you down.

Series 1-3 was better, bit this one is still fun!

The author in series 4 is different from series 1- 3.You can sort of tell this just from the style and humour which changes in series 4. but it's still worth listening to if you enjoyed the previous series.

Perfect!

Every now and then, I feel I need something gentle to perk me up, so I listen to this. Foolish, funny and immensely calming.

Heartwarming, gentle comedy

Having listened to the first three series the fact that a fourth existed eluded me for several years - my heart skipped a beat when I saw it was in fact, available to download and I binged the whole thing.
It's so beautifully written, clever, hilarious and heartwarming with just the right measure of jeopardy and suspense. I have all the 'feels' for this book.
Wishing Anthony and Damien all the very best wishes !!
