From BBC Radio 4 Extra - Series 3:
With her marriage aborted, the Cotswold sleuth must return the wedding gifts and clear herself of murder.

This is the best CD. Absolutely hilarious. Some really good one liners. The stories all link but the wizard of Evesham is such a good story. Love the characters and as for Felicity Kendal well what can I say. She is perfect in the role of Agatha Raisin. A brilliant actress and so funny to listen to. Perfect for listening to in the car. A light hearted start to any rainy Cumbrian day.
These radio dramas are quite entertaining but be aware they are a departure from the original novels. Well acted, they add a spark of reality to the stories with background music and sound effects. If you like the brusque Agatha Raisin or if you simply like radio programs, you will certainly enjoy these renditions. If you haven’t yet read the novels these dramas are based on, you might want to give them a try first: much is omitted from the original writings.
This audio of The Wizard of Evesham is not a straight reading of the text, but rather a version of the story made into a form suitable for radio. It was very entertaining. There were different actors' voices for each character and all kinds of background sounds. It was also a very condensed form of the original story. I enjoyed it as a change of pace from listening to the original audiobooks.
Two stories dramatised for radio, starring Penelope Keith.

Miss Marple with attitude! It was very entertaining.
Read the murderous marriage . Only Agatha can get into the predicaments & out again only slightly disheveled.
Another delightful entertainment with my favorite, Penelope Keith as Agatha.
Did not like this book. It was off putting to me.
Love the humour in M.C. Beaton books.
