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.

The Monster Hunters may have finished its successful run at the London Horror Festival for this year, but there's still some great productions to see at both the Etcetera Theatre and Wilton's Music Hall. Why not check out londonhorrorfestival.com for details?


Of most interest to Monster Hunters listeners will be The Puppetry of Flesh, a new play co-written by Lorrimer Chesterfield himself, Peter Davis.


Using a combination of live actors and puppetry, The Puppetry of Flesh tells the tale of Sam, a man tormented by memories, dreams and voices in his head. As his worst fears are made flesh, terrible secrets about his family are unveiled, and the lines between past and present, reality and fantasy begin to blur. All the signs point to a shocking and violent conclusion. Can he lay his demons to rest before it's too late?


'It's very different to The Monster Hunters, but just as enjoyable.' Peter explained. 'Even though there's humour in it, it's not a comedy. It's a powerful, thought provoking and hopefully pretty scary horror play. And it's got a puppet in it!'


The Puppetry of Flesh runs from 23rd - 25th October, 9.30pm at the Etcetera Theatre, Camden. Tickets are £10 (£8 concessions) and are available from the London Horror Festival website.
