John Finnemore's Double Acts is back for another series. In the first one his Cabin Pressure co-star Stephanie Cole plays Queen Victoria and Kerry Godliman is Mabel, a commoner sent to Osborne House to amuse the sovereign. Victoria is hoping for a conjuror and is disappointed to find Mabel is actually here to introduce her to her newly invented voice recording apparatus. Furthermore, she hopes to persuade the Empress of India to allow her voice to be heard by her subjects all over the world. Does she cooperate? You'll have to listen to find out.
