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.

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
