Merry Brandybuck

Pipeweed aficionado, squire to a king, ringleader of a conspiracy... it can only be the one and only Meriadoc Brandybuck. In this week's episode of in-depth Lord of the Rings character guide Not Another F**king Elf, we're going back to the Old Forest to assess Merry's leadership skills, and Paul remembers an old Radio 4 sitcom called Stockport, So Good They Named It Once. 

Every week in this podcast, Paul Ridd and Catherine Bray look at a character’s place in Tolkien’s mythos, their place in pop culture, literature and adaptations. We look at Peter Jackson’s adaptations, Ralph Bakshi’s Lord of the Rings (1978), the 1979 Mind’s Eye radio adaptation, Return of the King (1980) from Rankin-Bass, the 1981 BBC Radio adaptation, and the 1990 Rob Inglis and 2020 Andy Serkis audiobooks.
