The Excess of Evil
Dick Barton, hero of the BBC's 1940s radio serial, is back in this, the fifth part of the critically acclaimed and hugely successful series of musical comedies. All of the episodes work independently of one another.
The Excess of Evil cleverly departs from the usual formula of the episodes and through an unexpected device fills in the story of how Richard Barton met his sidekicks, Jock and Snowy and became Dick Barton, Special Agent.
