BBC Radio 4 is airing an adaptation of C J Sansom's "Dissolution" from tomorrow (Monday 3rd Sept), 10.45 and 1945 UK time. Looks good! :) Or perhap I should say sounds good.

I listened to the first part today, not sure about Shardlake's voice - he doesn't sound how I imagined he would - but it's good so far, and very atmospheric.

Agree - maybe Shardlake's needed to be deeper, more expressive? I thought Cromwell's voice was good though - suitably sinister!

Yes I thought Cromwell was well cast too.
