For most people a haunted chess set and the magical appearance of a horse would be enough to put anyone off their tea, but for Harry Crow (David Warner) and Professor Dunning (Terry Malloy) these are mysteries to saviour and experience. Inexplicable as these events are, a great discovery is being made in the South West of England, where the greatest discovery since Tutankhamen is supposed to happen. What all involved are not expecting is the unearthing of a 1400-year-old knight, Glewlwyd Gafaelfawl (Gareth David-Lloyd) and a plot to return Britain’s greatest hero...

The Scarifyers: The Thirteen Hallows is another rip roaring adventure from Cosmic Hobo. The eighth in the series and the stand alone audio plays just keep getting stronger and funnier. Written by Simon Barnard and Paul Morris and produced and directed by Simon Barnard with music by Edwin Sykes, the show continues the successful formula of period ghost hunting with its tongue firmly planted in its cheek.

With such a long running successful series it becomes difficult to find any higher words of praise, other than that which has already been printed. The acting is spot on with production values high enough to be picked up and transmitted on the radio. Long gone are the days when this could be thought of as a fan product, this is a truly original and professional experience.

I haven’t gone too deeply into the plot, so as not to create spoilers, but be assured that the plot is as bonkers as the previous plays. So switch off, settle back and spend a very enjoyable time with Crow and Dunning.
