Paul G. Abel

Well I thought this was an excellent production.  I was actually in two minds whether to listen to it, as I didn’t want to here some bad impersonation of Patrick in some sort of far-fetched drama, but in fact it was nothing of the sort.  It’s quite clear that much of the dialogue has been inspired from Martin’s book, and the whole thing is well written, funny and rather poignant in places.  It brought back a few memories for me when the chap playing Patrick calls his producer Paul Johnstone and bellows down the phone ‘Hello Paul, Patrick Here!!!!!’- that was exactly how he was when he called me.

I never met Patrick’s monther, but the lady playing her gives an excellent performance.  A good job all around I think and a very accurate description of Patrick’s early years.
