Publisher's Summary

Fielding's rollicking comic masterpiece sparkles with life in this BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatization. Abandoned child Tom is raised by the rich and benevolent squire Mr. Allworthy, much to the chagrin of Allworthy's mean-natured nephew Blifil, and develops into a good-natured rake. But Tom's inability to resist a pretty face lands him in hot water when he impregnates Blifil's betrothed.

When the lovely Sophia runs away to London, Tom pursues, embarking upon a series of riotous and amorous adventures. However, further trouble and the revelation of his true identity await him in London.

Rollicking fun

What rollicking fun! It had me laughing out loud at the mad confusion and the bawdy seduction scenes. All the actors are terrific especially Anton Lesser (charming as Tom), Annette Crosbie (wonderful as the wench Mrs Waters) and Peter Jeffrey (hilarious as the earthy Squire Weston). Fast paced and full of jollity, this is a great version of Fielding's ribald tale.

not Fielding’s classic

It is a dramatization, and it is sexed up to “modernize” it. It is heap, tawdry filth from the BBC. It’s also a rip-off because it’s mislabeled
