I highly recommend this podcast. It is witty and clever. I love the characters. If you like understated, British humor you will like this podcast. Have you noticed that every single podcast on this platform is set in a post-apocalyptic world filled with ghouls and monsters? Well, Wooden Overcoats is an exception, and I find that refreshing.

What a beautiful episode. This hit me hard with the melancholy. I loved how everything was mostly resolved, too. I feel empty, though...I need more! Antigone!! Now look here--

I thought it would be hard to top season 1 and 2 but season 3 finale was fantastic.

Wow, I finally get the joke of her name and character. Clever... and suspicious, one could say. I would totally listen to a series centered around her.

Imagine a man with Doc Martin's brusque lack of any bedside manner whatsoever, coupled with Blackadder's conniving ability to turn every situation to his own self interest (or try to, at least). Now imagine that this highly unsavory character ran a funeral parlor with his morbidly depressed and romantically repressed twin sister, Antigone, and thier plucky yet overworked assistant, Georgie. Thus begins the story of Rudyard Fun, whose life of overseeing death in the small island community of Piffling Vale seems almost perfect, despite the many quirks and idiosyncrasies of his fellow Pifflingites. That is, until the handsome, successful, and annoyingly pleasant Eric Chapman moves into the abandoned delicatessen across the street from Fun Funerals, opens up his own funeral parlor, and has the absolute, unabashed gall to win over the hearts of everyone on the island. Everyone except Rudyard and his team, of course. Well, most of them, anyway. Chaos, funeral stealing, and copious amounts of bickering inevitably ensue, all of which has been painstakingly recorded from first-hand accounts for our listening pleasure by aspiring journalist-and Rudyard's one and only friend-Madeline. Who also happens to be a mouse. This quirky, sweet, and completely original story is a refreshing dose of life in a small English seaside village, coupled with plenty of jokes and just a touch of whimsy. Despite being told from the perspective of a rodent, it's definitely not a fantasy, but more along the lines of a sitcom about learning to live (and die!) alongside your neighbors, because you have little choice when you live in a town the size of a postage stamp. There are some adult themes which would not be appropriate for children, but there is a refreshing lack of foul language and explicit content (for the most part). Give it a listen and try not to laugh...I dare you!

This podcast is brilliant! I love it! Such fantastic acting and sound production too. Plus, it's hilarious and so very British! 😁❤. I wish they were going to do more seasons but it sounds like it's all wrapped up. 😭

I just found this podcast after listening to king falls and was hoping to find something similarly funny. this did not let me down. The ensemble of actors are marvelous. The story flows seamlessly. Great podcast. Well done.

This is the first podcast I have ever listened to. Yes, I am late to the party. I love this so much I am scared that I am not going to be happy with others.

A mash up of a dysfunctional family/business/town, with unique characters, strange events, and funny bits, all while hiding a heart of gold that will charm you more than you ever suspected. I may have to write it into my will that when my time comes, the phrase "Put the body in the box in the ground on time.", must be repeated several times.
