Simon Brett's radio sitcoms

I'm so enjoying listening to Simon Brett's sitcoms. No Committments and After Henry are two of my favourites and yes, I've heard them before but they all bear a second or third blast. You can't fault the characterization and he's got some cracking actors on board. I met him at one of the CrimeFests and he's a lovely person too.
