This is a BBC Radio adaptation of J. M. Barrie's classic satire about the changing fortunes of Crichton, the perfect butler.

Liberal aristocrat Lord Loam favours a return to nature, with masters and servants living together as equals, but Crichton is the perfect butler and the perfect snob who adores the intricacies of the class system. He cannot help but be horrified by his master's opinions, and it will take a sea change to alter them.

Directed by Fiona Kelcher, The Admirable Crichton stars Russell Tovey as Crichton, David Bannerman as J. M. Barrie, Beth Chalmers as Lady Mary, David Timson as Lord Loam, Martha Howe-Douglas as Lady Agatha, Gunnar Cauthery as Ernest Woolley, Lizzy Watts as Tweeny, Adrian Grove as Rev. John Treherne, Stephen Hogan as Lord Brocklehurst, and Tina Gray as Lady Brocklehurst.

    " A fun little play, though a bit of a bitter-sweet ending. Marriner gives it 5-stars, it's just the sort of thing he loves. And I enjoyed it a lot, too! I promise, 3 stars is a very respectable rating from me! Just a little sad that he didn't get the girl :( "
