Gateway to Noël Coward - UK Edition
90 minute Blithe Spirit Special for the Archers
The Archers Christmas spin-off sees characters from the Ambridge-set radio soap perform in a 90-minute version of Blithe Spirit.
Noel Coward's play tells the story of a novelist haunted by his dead wife. The famous role of eccentric clairvoyant Madam Arcati will be played by Archers am-dram queen Lynda Snell (Carole Boyd).
The standalone drama follows the build-up to the performance during regular editions of The Archers. As well as other Archers regulars, the cast will also feature Green Wing actor Julian Rhind-Tutt.
