In his first radio venture, for BBC Radio 4, Rupert voices the character Nigel Molesworth in this adaptation of Willian's Down with Skool.
Nigel is a schoolboy at St Custard's, a fictional (and terrible) prep school located in a carefully unspecified part of England. Nigel's spelling is extremely uneven, a feature found endearing by fans. In his diaries, Nigel details the happenings at St Custards and how he deals with them.
Nigel, who describes himself as the "curse of St Custards" is joined in the story by his younger brother Molesworth 2 (who is described by Nigel as "uterly wet and a weed it panes me to think i am of the same blud") and also Nigel's "grate friend", Pearson.
