The Monster Hunters are back, and ready for their most dangerous adventure yet!


Someone is targetting the world's monster hunters and their sights are set on Roy Steel and Lorrimer Chesterfield. To unmask the culprit and ensure they live to fight, drink and pun another day, our heroes must travel from the mean streets of London to the mysterious northern city of Leeds. But is a power capable of destroying all monster hunters just too much for them?


Written and directed by Peter Davis and Matthew Woodcock. With Matthew Woodcock as Roy Steel, Peter Davis as Lorrimer Chesterfield and Silas, Laura Marshall as Karla, Sarah Whitehouse as The Lizard Girl, Simon Kane as Sir Maxwell House and Dan Starkey as Sir Princely Mothman and Lord Chislewood.

We're thrilled to announce that Dan Starkey will be joining us for our upcoming episode, Destroy All Monster Hunters!


Dan will be familiar to fans of Doctor Who as Strax, the Sontaran butler to Victorian adventuresses Madame Vastra and Jenny. He's also appeared in Wizards versus Aliens and The Sarah Jane Adventures, as well as working for Big Finish Productions. You might have also seen Dan as a visiting artist for The Fitzrovia Radio Hour.


Dan will be playing Sir Princely Mothman, a figure who will cross the path of Roy Steel and Lorrimer Chestefield as they investigate the deaths of the country's other top monster hunters. 'It was a huge pleasure to work with Dan,' said Peter Davis, otherwise known as Lorrimer Chesterfield. 'He's a nice guy and a great performer. His Sir Princely was brilliantly funny. He also chipped in with a voice for another character in the story and he was unrecognisable, even switching from one to the other in a scene!'


Destroy All Monster Hunters, our first adventure for 2014, will be available to stream and download soon.

Dan Starkey prepares us for Sir Princely. Simon Kane witnesses.

Rejoice! It's July 1st, which means the latest episode of The Monster Hunters is available to stream and download.


In X: The Terror from Beneath, Roy and Lorrimer travel to the village of Unstable to investigate the potential nest of the mythical Beast of Albion, but could what they discover be both inner and extra terrestrial?


Meanwhile, Griselda Promogrew, Roy's mysterious new girlfriend, is making her presence felt. It's something Lorrimer is none too pleased about...


This episode, we're delighted to welcome Daniel Lomas to the team. Daniel provided us with some fantastic sound effects for this episode and we'll be looking forward to working with him in the future. 'We were looking for some suitably other worldly sounds to represent the terror from beneath, and Daniel was happy to oblige.' Said Matthew Woodcock. 'I hope you find them as unsettling as I did!'


If you want to hear some of Daniel's electronic music, why not head over to his soundcloud page here?


Written and driected by Peter Davis and Matthew Woodcock. Starring Matthew Woodcock as Roy Steel, Peter Davis as Lorrimer Chesterfield, Claire Suarez as Dr. Alison Wellbeloved and Katy Danbury as Freda, with Susy Kane as Griselda Promogrew and Simon Kane as Sir Maxwell House
