If we are going back into the past one my colleagues and I used to listen to at work years ago was called Married about a guy who wakes up in a parallel world and horror of horrors he is married. Hugh Bonneville and Stephen Frost on top form.
"Married" was excellent. Very dark.
There have been some good repeats lately. Kerry Godliman's "Kerry's List" was fun, delving into some dark-ish places, even if Kerry herself can become a bit wearing. She's about to reappear in a repeat of Jack Docherty's excellent "Start/Stop".
Gerard Foster's wonderful "At Home With The Snails" is getting another run. It's 17 years old now but hits very dark heights. Probably a young Miranda Hart's best ever performance.
And Katherine Jakeways' "North by Northamptonshire" is tonally sublime, balancing humanity with character assassination.
I'm finding "Josh Howie's Losing It" funny enough in parts but derivative. Hullo Tom Wrigglesworth. Unlike Wrigglesworth, Howie too often takes the easy way out using his narration for his gags.
