In this episode we take a look at two of the Slough House novellas, The List and The Drop, with guest Matthew Bradford. We discuss whether there’s a sadder sack than John Bachelor, what the worst thing Herron has done to one of his characters and Matthew shares a piece of Hollywood advice he got that you won’t want to miss!
Find Matthew Bradford on Twitter here or on his site Double O Section.
Each month we’ve explored a different book in the series. All leading up to the release of Book 7, Slough House.
Next up Matthew returns for a look at the Slough House novella The Catch, the short story The Last Dead Letter and we talk about the upcoming AppleTV+ adaption.

Is that a real location in the photo? Or a film set? Looks wonderful either way!
That is a photo of the real Fischer’s in Maryleborne, London. https://www.fischers.co.uk/
Fabulous discussion, reminded me of so much I’d forgotten about these great little tales. However, very difficult to negotiate… No progress bar, no indication of how long the discussion is, unable to pause and come back to it! So if I switch off partway through I’d probably have to to start from the beginning again. Would this just be my aged laptop and Windows 8.1? Or maybe it’s just today? Perhaps I’ll try again later…
Many thanks anyway, it really is a very enjoyable discussion, so many points I’d forgotten and I’m going to have to go back to the fountainhead! Cheers!
Hmm. That’s odd. I’m seeing the podcast player in both the Safari and Chrome browsers. If you still are having trouble when you try again, let me know what browser you’re using. Thanks for listening! Or at least trying to!
Yeah, thanks Jeff – I think it was a glitch at my end! The recording stopped suddenly mid sentence about five minutes from the end, so I refreshed it and the progress bar was there – but it was starting from the begining again. I reckon it’s because I don’t have a fast connection here (the old copper wire!) and I wasn’t using Google Chrome. If I could find out how to edit my comment I’d just leave it at the praise for the podcast! Many thanks!
