The Scarifyers is a series of rip-roaring tales of comedic supernatural intrigue set in 1930s Britain, distilling the likes of Dick Barton, The Avengers, The Devil Rides Out and Quatermass into cracking new audio adventures. The Scarifyers is broadcast on BBC Radio 4 Extra, and has been described as 'rollicking good fun', 'a slice of audio perfection', 'the smartest and most enjoyable thing on British radio' and 'like Tintin but with the lights out.'
This is the first Scarifyers adventure.Christmas 1936. Ghost story writer Professor Dunning (Terry Molloy) doesn't believe in the supernatural.
So he's more than surprised when an invisible winged demon appears in his drawing room.The Metropolitan Police's longest-serving officer, Inspector Lionheart (Nicholas Courtney), doesn't believe in the supernatural either, wings or no wings.
So he's less than impressed when Russian emigres begin dying impossible deaths all over London.Together, Lionheart and Dunning must face quarrelsome Generals, sinister clowns and Russian demons as they unravel The Nazad Conspiracy.

Entertaining in a fluffy frosting sort of way

This was a fun little story. More music filler than I prefer. Solving supernatural crimes in 1936 England. Delightful idea with the right mix of skepticism and the unexplainable. I'll probably listen to another to see if the get their feet under them and keep delivering interesting stories that don't require your full attention. Perfect for falling asleep to as they're not long and if you have the timer set, easy to pick up from your starting bookmark and catch up to where you fell asleep.
