Newgate Productions are pleased to announce a second series of The Monster Hunters will commence in the spring.


Kicking off the new series will be the ever-so-cryptically titled They Stole Lorrimer’s Brain!, which will see Roy Steel race against time to recover his friend and flatmate’s most vital organ. But hang on, flatmate? ‘If you’ve heard the Christmas special, then you’ll know the status quo changed quite dramatically for Roy and Lorrimer,' said Matthew Woodcock. ‘It’s something that we’ll certainly be exploring early in series two. Just how do Roy and Lorrimer get along with each other when they’re stuck together at home?’


So what fiends from the depths of hell await our heroes this year? ‘I don’t want to give too much away, but Matthew and I sat down with a big book of monsters and looked for the ones we haven’t faced yet,’ explained co-writer Peter Davis. ‘It was effectively a game of monster bingo.’


As with last year’s series, there will be an on-going story running through the episodes. ‘It’s something you’ve heard of before,’ Matthew said. ‘We dropped a reference into the last episode of series one, so if you can’t wait a few months, go back and see if you can work it out!’


More titles and information will be revealed here in the next few months…

By now you'll have heard our special 45 minute Halloween episode. If not, why not? Pop over to the episodes page now and come back. There, did you like it? If the answer is yes then you're in luck, because we're back at Christmas with another brand new special!


Entitled The Haunting of Roy Steel, the episode will resolve the unexpected cliffhanger to the Halloween special, which saw Roy coming face to face with a figure from his past, as well as pit the team against the supernatural. There will also be some jokes as well.


'We're always looking for ways to enrich the characters and world of The Monster Hunters,' said Matthew Woodcock, co-writer and the voice of Roy Steel. 'As we had spent a lot of series one exploring Lorrimer's background, it seemed right that we look into Roy's past as well. It's a chance to see how Roy will react in the last situatuion you would expect him in.'


To find out just how Roy will cope with the shocking return of the one person he hoped he would never see again, keep your eyes on the website: we'll be posting more information very soon.
