Andrew's Radio Times

Congratulations to Norwich Writers' Circle member Andrew Stephenson, who has had a letter published in the 12-18 February 2011 edition of Radio Times.

Andrew's letter reads as follows:

I am enjoying Episodes (Mondays BBC2) greatly. This, in the face of criticisms - from RT amongst others - that it is not funny, or has not got moving, or otherwise has not the critics's fire. If its creators sold it on that pretext, they were wrong. It is satire.

Comedy tries for laughs. Satire sticks sharp things into deserving targets. Whilst straight-facedly exploring what's wrong with the world, as a natural corollary it commonly manages to be hilarious in ways comedians struggle to fathom.
