Conquest Marches On: A Norman Conquest Thriller: A Full-Cast BBC Radio Drama


Set during the Golden Age of Detective Fiction, where every story promises a 'Thousand Thrills!', with ingenious plots, full of twists and surprises, driven along with exciting action and tongue in cheek humour.

Norman Conquest is off to the theatre, when our fast talking, hard hitting adventurer finds himself accused of assaulting a pretty young lady on the underground. It’s only when our hero “1066” discovers that the young lady is the victim of a mysterious blackmailer known as “The Voice”, that he marches into yet another hell-for-leather action packed adventure in search of the baddies.

“It is pure 1930s, when the hero did say to the villain: "Good grief! You're a cold blooded killer!" and the heroine did affectionately call her hero "a cockeyed chump!" To all concerned “Jolly good show, chaps.” The Times

“Christopher Cazenove seems to relish his role as Norman Conquest, a hero about who dashing is the least that could be said! Atmospheric and great fun for those who prefer older-style detectives.” Daily Express

Also available as part of the THRILLER PLAYHOUSE BOX SET, eight episodes featuring Max Carrados, Norman Conquest and Ben from the popular BBC Drama series.
