Great stories are all about great characters. Virtuous, courageous and heroic.

Mel and Sid are not those characters.

Mel and Sid are the people we never read about in novels. Selfish, cowardly and stupid - they are the characters who inhabit the world the likes of Poirot, Jane Austen and Willy Wonka. They're Sherlock Holmes' next door neighbours. They're sailors aboard the Hispaniola. They're Christian Grey's cleaners. And now it's time to hear their stories!

Each episode, we join Mel and Sid inside the world of a different novel. Join us for the recording for the first two episodes!


EPISODE 1: Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde
EPISODE 2: 1984

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
