The Maltby Collection is David Nobbs' first radio sitcom and focuses on life in a small, fairly unpopular museum. The employees' complicated love lives and varied ambitions for the future are the basis for much of the comedy in the series.

Our Review: The Maltby Collection is an always-enjoyable series featuring several memorable characters, entertaining situations and a very strong cast. The show is rarely hilarious, but it is smartly written and contains many amusing moments.
