Elisabeth Pepys, wife of 17th-century London blogger Samuel, reads out another diary entry here. In The London Podcast Mr Pepys has hurtled into the 21st-century while Lizzie is left in 1669.

Mrs Pepys is played by the talented Sarah Kempton who often performs in London (and elsewhere) as part of ad lib troupe Crime Scene Improvisation (crimesceneimpro.com).
