Richard Armitage has performed several abridged Naxos audiobooks, The Convenient Marriage, Venetia and Sylvster (so far). So, we asked Naxos if they would be kind enough to answer some questions about the process of producing an audiobook. Our thanks to Naxos for their cooperation and really interesting answers. The 2-page Q&A has  been uploaded to the RAC Library. (Please check out our Audiobooks and Performances page for excerpts from, and information about, Richard’s audiobooks; and you can find downloads of the excerpts posted there in our Media: Audiobook and Radioplays page.)

According to the Guardian, “Stuart Murphy, the Sky1 controller, has ordered a second 10-part series of the drama following this year’s first run.” Left Bank Pictures, which produced series 1, will produce the second series. Dan Percival, who directed the first series will write and direct the first two episodes and Andrew Benson who produced it will again produce it. (The Guardian)
