''Ed Reardon's Week'' is a BBC Radio 4 comedy, written by Chris Douglas and Andrew Nickolds. It follows Edward Reardon, a divorced, washed-up, pence-pinching writer who makes it through the day with a combination of drink and acerbic wit. Once a moderately promising novelist, he is now reduced to writing coffee table, "impulse buy" books about celebrity pets to keep body and soul together. His favorite coping mechanism is making misanthropic observations about life, most of which he relays to his journal or his cat, [[Music/EdwardElgar Elgar]].
