The Monster Hunters get their claws into a terrifying mystery this April, as the team travels to
Devonshire on the trail of a werewolf.
In The Heir of the Dog, The Monster Hunters are summoned by Tony Hands, England’s Richest Man, to his stately home, where not even his high tech golden security system can protect the team from a beast stalking the moors, killing people and breaking fences without remorse. As night falls and the evil prepares to strike again, the situation is complicated by the mysterious and beautiful Madeline Lockheart.
Joining Peter Davis and Matthew Woodcock are Monster Hunters regular Laura Marshall as Madeline and Panny Skrivanos as Tony Hands, making this episode something of a re-union for all involved. The whole cast had previously worked together in Sherlock Holmes Strikes Back! for award winning audio producers The Wireless Theatre Company. ‘It was only a matter of time before we got the gang back together, it was just a question of finding the right parts.’ said co-writer Peter Davis. Panny has previously appeared with Louis De Bernieres in Sunday Morning at the End of the World
at the Southwark Playhouse and is no stranger to horror, having performed in Grand Guignol for
Theatre of the Damned.
The Heir of the Dog will be an important episode for Lorrimer Chesterfield. ‘Lorrimer isn’t good around women, and this is the first time a woman has been interested in him who doesn’t want to drink his blood.’ Peter said. ‘But just what caused Lorrimer’s fear of women will have to wait until episode three…’
You can hear Sherlock Holmes Strikes Back! for free at the Wireless Theatre Company’s website, where it is still one of the company’s top five downloads following its release in September 2011. The Heir of the Dog will be available on iTunes and here at the Monster Hunters website on the 1st April.
