Millport: The Complete Series 1-3: A BBC Radio comedy sitcom

Unabridged Audiobook

Date: July 2021

Duration: 8 hours 21 minutes

Summary:

All 18 episodes of the BBC radio sitcom about a thirtysomething barmaid living on a tiny Scottish island

Irene Bruce spends her days pulling pints in Millport, the only town on the Isle of Cumbrae, a few miles off the west coast of Scotland. Frustrated and going nowhere fast, she yearns to escape to the mainland for a better life - or at least a bit of fun. Just over the water, there are clubs, cinemas and discos, so why is she stuck at home with tea, Scrabble and her boring sister Moira?

In these three series, Irene tries her hand at matchmaking, celebrates her 33rd birthday, faces a dilemma over a talking dog, and finds romance where she least expects it. And as Cumbrae is beset by strange events and emergencies - from a missing pensioner, to a threat to the local pub, to a media makeover that risks ruining the island's integrity - she keeps trying to leave town, and keeps being pulled back. But when push finally comes to shove, she's forced to consider where her heart really lies: on the mainland, or in Millport...

Written by and starring Lynn Ferguson (No Angels, Chicken Run) as Irene, this bittersweet comedy drama boasts an all-Scottish cast and a panoply of vibrant, eccentric characters. Comedian and impressionist Janet Brown plays Moira, with Lewis MacLeod (Dead Ringers, Spitting Image) as café owner Alberto and Robert the Dog.
