The week of Monday 13th - Friday 17th February 2017 sees the third outing of Stef Penney's radio series entitled Modesty Blaise: The Silver Mistress, which will be aired on Radio 4 in the 15 minute drama slot. That's at 10.45am, repeated at 7.45pm every day. There will be an omnibus on the following Sunday, and, of course, it’ll be on iPlayer for a week after. The story is an adaptation of The Silver Mistress by Peter O’Donnell - one of Stef's favourite Modesty novels.
Here us a summary of the show:
Beautiful, intelligent and the catsuit wearing queen of hand-to-hand combat, Modesty Blaise was once the head of an international crime operation. Now, having given up her nefarious ways, Modesty and her faithful side-kick, Willie Garvin, offer their services for more respectable causes.
In this new adventure, adapted from Peter O'Donnell's novel by Stef Penney, Modesty invites Sir Gerald Tarrant of British Intelligence to join her for a holiday at the Gorges du Tarn in the South of France. But, after stopping on the cliff road to help two nuns who have broken down, Sir Gerald's car is found smashed to pieces at the bottom of the ravine.
With gorgeous music by Will Gregory, arranged by Ian Gardiner and performed by the National Orchestra of Wales, conducted by Ben Foster.
Sound by David Thomas.
Directed by Kate McAll
