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 audio adventures.
The series is broadcast on BBC Radio 4 Extra, and has been described in the national press 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 second Scarifyers adventure. A melting minister... a scientific project gripped by madness... a remote village on the Kent coast where the locals have some strange habits indeed. It's all just the ticket for top-secret government department, MI-13.Lionheart (Nicholas Courtney) and Dunning (Terry Molloy) are back; to do battle with the Women's Institute, and old adversary and an inter-dimensional being from the dawn of time - The Devil of Denge Marsh.

"A pleasingly old-fashioned romp... full of pulp fun and spirited characters." (Death Ray Magazine)
"A little slice of audio perfection" (Sci-Fi Online)
Brilliantly written and so humorous! The characters are so endearing and fabulous. I wish there were more to listen to.
Every episode of the frankly sublime Scarifiers has something special about it and this more than any of the others should tickle the funny bones of adherents of Lovecraft. Faultless performances and sound design.
