A series of whole stories over 5 episodes. Really interesting listening

Limelight always starts out promising but ends up being tepid and unremarkable.

All stories are about women and all lead characters for nearly all stories are women. How about some stories for male listeners. ???? VERY UNBALANCED AND SEXIST.

Def. One of my favorites, good storyline, good acting, sounds were immersive, it’s a must listen if u like action. Excited to check out other titles Spoiler on ending That’s more than I got in my account, I’d definitely be happy with that.

Great short listen, one of the better in recent memory. Please release more!

I absolutely love this podcast I’m not even sure what to call it. It’s a collection of fictional stories that last approximately 5 episodes, some of them have second of third seasons but most of them are just one off stories. Some are dystopian, some are funny, or a but spooky. I haven’t loved...Read full review »

Can you please organize each separate show into a numbered season (like the majority of other podcasts on Apple)? Its so annoying to have to scroll through all the shows. I can’t believe the show has been on Apple for so long and still remains unorganized.

It’s so disorganized. Why don’t they divide the stories into their own individual shows?
JaneBerlinH via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/17/24
The stories are mostly good but they need to be organized they are just all thrown together and it makes no sense and I can’t keep the stories separate in my mind.
Ladiwanderinstagram via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/12/24
These series of stories are so good. I look forward to hearing each one and they keep me gripped until the end. Wonderfully characterised and narrated by great voices and the special sound effects are brilliant! Thank you.

While the production quality is excellent and the actors’ performances great, the stories are highly biased Marxist narratives against capitalism and white people. The most recent stories (Cobalt and Sabine) both advocate for illegal actions (theft, torture, destruction of property) against white...Read full review »

Story telling at its best!
Flick Harris via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/11/24
So I listed to Cobalt and I LOVED it. As an African it brought me so much joy to hear African voices, African accents, and African stories being told. But why are all Africans the same????? 😅😅😅😅😅the auntie on the plane is such an African auntie. And it’s true, in African culture everyone is...Read full review »

I dearly love this podcast for its audio quality and fabulous story series. Adored English Rose and Harlan series the most.

I am a huge fan of all of your podcast.
ck do ufk via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/01/23
Consistently great concepts and stories, but too often having weak/rushed endings. Even if you’re going to have additional seasons later, the lame endings really need work. Please.
moppet_mi via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/30/23
The stories are mostly good and enthralling. But for the love of god, if you’re not going to make each story it’s on podcast under your channel, at least separate each story into seasons so that we can find what we want faster and listen easier. You just slap new crap up with no care in the...Read full review »

Without a doubt, of all of the many, many fiction podcasts I have listened to, the two five-part Aldrich Kemp series' are the most clever, witty, well written and well acted I have come across. An absolute must listen for any fan of podcast fiction.Read full review »

Among the most engaging, high quality, suspenseful audio drama series I’ve encountered so far.
parkrangerno7 via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 11/05/23
I don’t usually listen to this genre but I am loving this. Love the stories the styles and actors voices. Brilliant
1scotslass via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/17/23
Got fed up trying to listen to the story through the distracting background music. The distraction causes the story to ramble and I can’t decide what to focus on. Shame as I like the idea.

Enjoyed every minute of it

Not sure what it is about the writers of this podcast. But every episode has a very good buildup for the storyline, but the ending seems very rushed and basic. It’s like this at the end of each Story.
POstal Papi via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/17/23
Absolutely magnificent production(s), the soundscape, the voiceacting, the thematic research: This defines the standard of audio drama & storytelling.
ndjuxhhehaijdbehbbxk via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 08/01/23
Intriguing, suspenseful series, well written with good voice acting 🎭 the first series I've listened to on Limelight but I'll be trying some more 👍🏼Read full review »
RicksPickle via Apple Podcasts · Thailand · 07/11/23
Well-written and acted, and presented by “Slow Horses” heartthrob Jack Lowden, it is the rare true crime podcast that centers the victims. Its fifth and final episode packs a wallop. Quite moving.
Robstantinople via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/15/23
I first listened to the Tom Clancy story and loved it. Saw “Who is Aldrich Kemp” and couldn’t wait to listen to the next episode. Hoping he’s not really dead in “Who Killed Aldrich Kemp”. I want to keep going! Fun, exciting and mysterious. Makes the ride to work so much better!!

As brilliant a quirky English show as you would ever hope you find. Binged over the weekend and loved every bit. So glad Mrs Boon featured more this time around. Great sequel. Really hope there’s a third series for Clara & Co.

In the somewhat continuing story line that Simpson has created, we find some of our favorite characters as well as new ones. Excellent acting and sound, I just wished there where more episodes. I assume in Simpson’s next podcast we will see where Kennedy is in her search and also hope we hear...Read full review »

Why the BBC commissioned this incoherent drivel I just don’t know. The normally excellent BBC podcasts like Cryptoqueen and coming Storm are lessened by this rambling mess. Avoid far better available.
Simon C M via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/19/23
Limelight became a stable in my audio life. Always waiting for new stories to appear.
jozfcbkkufdrgb via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 01/27/23
Loved this series. Just like playing the game. I wish they’d bring it back. Great sound quality. If you loved the game, you’ll love this special series.
Miss worldwide via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/29/22
One of my absolute favourite podcasts. The stories vary enormously in terms of subject matter but they've all been superb. 'Who is Aldrich Kemp' is especially good, but the two Harland serials were also excellent. I eagerly anticipate each new release. Highly recommended.Read full review »

I appreciate that it’s an audio drama, but the dialogue is written like an 50s detective novel, leaving noting up to the imagination. The even use the word nemesis! Like WTF.
GalCapone via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 12/23/22
What’s the podcast version of a page turner? Amazing stories with fantastic actors.
Hnp589 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/20/22
I don’t ever remember abandoning a thriller action mystery type fiction podcast before. I persevered but just couldn’t manage this one. Bad script and even worse sound mix.
SR75756 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/16/22
I love most of limelight stories But Splinter Cell, although much acclaimed by some, I found it far too busy, boring and noisy.
Anynamewilldo22 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 12/16/22
Omfg I cannot believe there is a STRAIGHT character in The System. It adds nothing to the plot. I wish they’d stop shoving this far right nonsense down our throats. See what it sounds like the other way round? Inclusion is nothing bad. Just because a podcast has LGBTQ+ representation doesn’t...Read full review »

What’s the point of making these available on the Apple podcast app when none of them play? Even the ones from last month say they are unavailable. Disappointed because the write up looked interesting.

Such an interesting niche podcast in “Exemplar”. Good narrative and technical details on audio forensics. Investigative storytelling also draws you in. So well done. BBC continues to impress.
maggie_lc via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/19/22
Amazing - enjoyed every episode!!
JaneC5607 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/01/22
Exemplar… Great cast, great production, interesting characters and premise. Loved Juliet S in episode 3. My only criticism was that the show works best when it’s one contained story per episode. The episodic Mother story line seemed unnecessary. But really good stuff otherwise.
