Summary

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 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 fifth Scarifyers adventure.

Intelligent and funny

I've just discovered this series having heard one on BBC R4Extra. Great characters, enjoyable plots and brilliant acting and sound effects.
Jolly good fun and usually some references to other classic films which adds to the enjoyment.

Light hearted humour

Funny and unpredictable. The characters are Fun and adventurous with out being serious. A good dramatised story for listening to in the afternoon.
