Simon Barnard of Bafflegab (the folks behind the terrific Scarifyers series) writes to say they’re working on a new horror audio series in conjunction with Hammer Films!

It sounds great!

The series can be pre-ordered HERE.

The first show The Box, will be released on June 7th. Here’s the description:

The culmination of the Wainfleet Maritime College sea rescue and safety course is a session in The Box, an underwater helicopter escape simulator. The candidates are ex-navy or air force, and The Box should be an easy exercise for such experienced men.

So why are the drop-outs gradually increasing in number? Men are seeing things when they’re submerged, and won’t talk about them when they come out…

What is the secret of The Box?

The Scarifyers: The Thirteen HallowsOur preview copy of The Scarifyers: The Thirteen Hallows has just arrived. This is the eighth Scarifyers adventure. The first was released in 2006. I’ve caught previous releases on BBC Radio – and found it to be smirkingly good stuff – a period ghost hunter send up, full of jokes, and top shelf performers.

Indeed, The Scarifyers is rather like a sweet marmalade that you really don’t mind if it gets in your mustache as you’ll be able to enjoy it all day long.

It’ll be available for purchase on December 3, 2012 HERE.

Here’s the official description:

When a haunted chess set causes consternation at the British Chess Championships, and a horse magically materialises in Kettering Agricultural Museum, MI:13 are called to investigate.

Harry Crow (David Warner) and Professor Dunning (Terry Molloy) follow the trail of inexplicable happenings to an unremarkable terraced house in South Wales, home to the mysterious Mr Merriman (David Benson). He’s very old, and very mad; but is there more to Merriman than first appears?

Meanwhile, in the South West of England, famed archaeologist Ralegh Radford (Ewan Bailey) is on the verge of the greatest discovery of the age. Britain’s Tutankhamen, the press are calling it. But what he certainly isn’t expecting to unearth is boisterous 1400-year-old knight Glewlwyd Gafaelfawr (Gareth David-Lloyd).

As Crow and Dunning unravel an unlikely plot to resurrect Britain’s greatest-ever hero, the race is on to stop sinister forces at home and abroad from finding… THE THIRTEEN HALLOWS.
