Just the one today - finishing off the small Bafflegab backlog with a first run through The Scarifyers - The Curse of the Black Comet.
Seriously been looking forward to this one. Nick Courtney, Terry Molloy and the very loud force of nature that is Brian Blessed...😊
My favourite of the whole series. And it's a fabulous series!
Oh my goodness..I do not think I have burst out laughing as much I did listening to this tonight. Another glorious escapade with Lionheart and Dunning. So much to take in. Some near the knuckle lines that are so near they are practically down to the bone (with out a doubt Brian Blessed got the best lines and did he know it!), Basil's eccentricity and his joyful rendition of his old school song...🤣, lovely nods to Star Wars and Raiders Of The Lost Ark among others, a nurse who wouldn't have been out of place in a Carry On film, the plague, the 'Submaureen' and the 'Black Comet'..🤣. And of course 'Handy'....
Overall an enormous sense of fun packed into under two hours. Loved it. Absolutely loved it. 😊

The Horror at Red Hook, courtesy of Dark Adventure Radio Theatre. A fine production that takes one of Lovecraft's more xenophobic stories and accentuates the cosmic horror while not overtly wallowing in the racism of the author.
