Hamish & Dougal 2 - from BBC Audiobook


Hamish and Dougal - two of the most popular characters from the hugely successful Radio 4 series I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue - now have their very own radio series.


In this brand new BBC Audio CD of the second series, Barry Cryer and Graeme Garden star as the two elderly Scotsmen, alongside Mrs Naughtie, a cleaning lady cum housekeeper played by Alison Steadman, and the local Laird, played by Jeremy Hardy.

In The Vampire of the Glen, our heroes are suspicious after the Laird asks them to dig a hole in his allotment large enough for a coffin-shaped wardrobe, while in Fame Idol, Hamish and Dougal are anxious to enter 'Fay McAdemy', the famous Highland talent contest.


A contest of a different kind is on the agenda in The Fitness Club, when the Laird challenges Dougal to a MacAthlon- an endurance test, which involves swimming Loch Crankie, cycling to the bottom of Ben Kingsley and then running the length of Glen Close.


The daffy duo try to discover the identity of the author of a series of unsettling anonymous letters in The Poison Pen Letters, and accidentally manage to hook the Loch Jaw Monster while out fishing in The Monster in the Loch. And to round off proceedings, in Trapped they find themselves stuck between floors in a trip to a well-known department store on London's Oxford Street.


Hamish & Dougal 2 is published on CD by BBC Audiobooks on 04.04.2005.
