Irreverent Comedy

I enjoy the series very much. Satan has his own take on “the fall”. He has assistants, various pits of torture, a surprising number of famous personages and one in particular who argues with him. The sounds effects are amusing; the description of his main imp is gag-worthy, but I sympathize with with the imp’s tender feelings. I just really enjoy this series. Satan’s voice is perfect. Hahaha

Not my favorite of the series

This really isn't a Christmas tale. It may have been aired around Christmas, hence the title ...
Has an interesting storyline but not one of the better ones.

Brilliant as always

I love Andy Hamilton and all of his works but Old Harry's Game is the best thing he has ever written and this is no exception!! From puns to peculiar punishments it excels at delivering Hamilton's genius and the skill of the performers
