    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.'

    found the music in the middle a bit irritating.

    overall good light listening. Try to buy it on offer though because I think it was a bit expensive full price.

    Yet another hearty laughable story. Great.

    Brilliantly written and so humorous! The characters are so endearing and fabulous. I wish there were more to listen to.

    Enjoyable, if a bit frantic

    Probably about halfway down - enjoyable, not memorable, and a little bit "excitable".
