Angstrom review

Not every gag fires, but there are certainly enough of them to ensure you'll soon find one that does. Aptly, you're never far from a killer. Plus the story is compelling and labyrinthine enough for listeners to want to tune in next week to find out what happens next.

Steve Bennett, Chortle, 10th January 2018
