Another fine BBC adaptation, this P.D. James psychological thriller features gripping, in-the-moment performances by a talented cast. Produced with understated reserve and building the tension brick by brick until we perceive a disturbing wall of evil, this radio play is riddled with nuanced moments of emotional intensity. A perfect play to listen to on a dark, stormy night by the fire, THE SKULL BENEATH THE SKIN bears more resemblance to film noir than standard radio fare. The cast provides a realistic sense of evil lurking beneath a civilized exterior. D.J.B. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 03/JAN 04]
