Riddley Walker Part One – The Curiously Specific Book Club
Lloyd and Tim are back in Kent, scene of their adventures with Moonraker and Stig of the Dump. This time they’re retracting the footsteps of Riddley Walker, the eponymous star of Russell Hoban’s extraordinary 1980 novel. In the first episode they attempt to track down Riddley’s home in How Fents, and travel to Canterbury Cathedral to find the frieze of the legend of St Eustace, the original inspiration for Hoban (and, they discover, an episode of Call the Midwife!).
