Just a quick update to say that the epic, 100-minute, Bernice Summerfield charity special Many Happy Returns is now available to order on download. All proceeds go to the charity Invest in M.E. and everyone involved in the project gave their time for nothing!

Nostalgic, sometimes sentimental, but above all fun, this special celebration of twenty years of Benny features a vast cast, including: Lisa Bowerman (Bernice Summerfield), Stephen Fewell (Jason Kane), Steven Wickham (Joseph), Miles Richardson (Irving Braxiatel), Louise Faulkner (Bev Tarrant), Harry Myers (Adrian Wall), Thomas Grant (Peter Summerfield), Ayesha Antoine (Ruth), David Ames (Jack), Marcus Hutton (Leonidas), Katy Manning (Iris Wildthyme), David Benson (Panda), Nicholas Briggs (The Curator), Sylvester McCoy (Late Arrival), Sophie Aldred (Dave Stone), Christopher Allen (Adam), John Ainsworth (Casino Robot) and Gary Russell (Vice Chancellor)

Some people have also been asking who did what, so here’s a quick breakdown of the various sequences (hopefully spoiler-free) for those who want it…
