Critical ReceptionEdit

The story is based on the life of the Somerset and England cricketer Harold Gimblett, an extraordinary man who committed suicide to end a life that frequently strayed close to clinical insanity. Perhaps as interesting as the story itself is the way the production explores the use of radio sound, mixing words with music in a way that will not please every ear. But it mostly works, even if there are moments when the one intrudes on the other. The Times.
