My radio recommendation this week is the Afternoon Drama on Radio 4 Slipping, starring Andrew Scott and Charlotte Riley and written by Claudine Toutoungi.
Elena and Sean come together in unusual circumstances – he is designing her new prosthetic eye. They soon discover an undeniable attraction, but the compulsive liar within both of them makes a relationship more and more difficult. As the date of Elena’s eye operation looms, the realities of each others lives come more and more into focus.
It’s gripping stuff, and the two principal leads give wonderful performances. At fourty-five minutes long it’s perfect to listen to as you cook the dinner (as I did) and you have five days left to do so. Catch it here.
