Crackanory

Warwick Davis has appeared in a few fantasy stories in the past, so he's an ideal pick to read 'The Untangler'. It's a story about a man who tries to apply his gift for sorting out things to the task of wooing a princess. Meanwhile Emilia Fox - who was previously tangled up in all that killing business in The Wrong Mans - reads a story called 'Murder He Wrote'. Toby Davies and Nico Tatarowicz are the writers behind the twisted tales. Dave, 10pm. Guide

Also: Trish loses her mobile phone in The Job Lot. There's a mix of stand-up, panel show and sitcom repeats too. Schedule
