Thanks A Lot, Milton Jones!

Mention Milton Jones to most people and the first thing they think is ‘Help!’.

After finishing five series of “Another Case Of Milton Jones”, the king of the one-liners returned BBC to Radio 4 for an amazing 10th series in a new format where he has decided to set himself up as a man who can help anyone anywhere - whether they need it or not. Because, in his own words - “No problem too problemy”.

But each week, Milton, and his trusty assistant Anton (played, as ever, by Tom Goodman-Hill) set out to help people and soon find they’re embroiled in a new adventure. So when you’re close to the edge, then Milton can give you a push...

The show is written by Milton with James Cary (“Bluestone 42”, “Miranda”), and Dan Evans (who co-wrote Milton’s Channel 4 show “House Of Rooms”) and the cast includes the Miltonic heroes Dan Tetsell (“Newsjack”) and Ben Willbond (“Horrible Histories”) - and features the one and only Josie Lawrence working with Milton for the first time!

The music is, of course, by Guy Jackson who also did all the music for, deep breath, The Very World Of.... The House Of.... and Another Case Of...

The second series started its run in December 2015, back with the regular cast and a whole lot of new problems for Milton to help with including the case of the fake champagne and the case of the missing Bermuda Triangle in Anton's Bermuda Shorts...

Thanks A Lot, Milton Jones!
