Mark Gatiss- The Black Butterfly (radio)

Mark is on BBC Radio 4 extra in The Black Butterfly. All episodes available of I-player for anyone able-enabled to get this. I'm going to listen to it and will post what I think/synopsis here.

Mycroft’s popularity doesn’t surprise me at all. He is, after all, incredibly beautiful, clever and well-dressed. And beautiful. Did I mention that?

Well this is written by Mark himself and he reads these stories about a just retired spy. Very enjoyable and certainly made me smile. Set in the early 1950s just after the coronation of Queen Elizabeth ll.

This is a spoof spy story. I particularly liked the names he gave his characters: Lucifer Box (a lucifer is another name for a match), Kingdom Come, Whitby Bay etc.

I loved it! It'd make a cool film.

It really amused me. Very, very clever spoof/pastiche.
