Review

Radio Times makes a cameo in the first of the stories here. It’s a cautionary tale, Richmond Hammond informs us – attempting an ominous smile. It’s also a silly one: a postman becomes the perfect boyfriend by reading someone’s mail.

Second in the storytelling chair is comic actress Jessica Hynes, who is much better at sinister. Written by Holly Walsh, it’s about a woman who wakes up hung-over to find her eight-year-old self staring at her from the foot of the bed. This one is more satisfying, although is more likely to give you nightmares than fits of giggles.

Summary

Actress Jessica Hynes and TV presenter Richard Hammond narrate more amusing stories for adults, featuring a postman who reads his crush's mail to learn what makes her tick. A woman also meets her eight-year-old self.
