Detective Inspector Lionheart (Courtney) and Professor Dunning (Molloy) have battled spirits and set up top secret departments to tackle other worldly mysteries. Their exploits have been heard by many, including audiences listening to radio station BBC7, where the series was broadcast to the public.
Since that sad passing of Nicholas Courtney this year however, the series is taking a bold new step and looks set to be just as exciting as ever:
Professor Dunning (Terry Molloy) is finding the business of single-handedly saving Great Britain from the forces of darkness rather taxing.
And Lionheart? Lionheart is missing.
When the only clue to his disappearance seems to lie in a twenty-year-old murder investigation, Dunning turns to the one man who might have the answers: Lionheart’s erstwhile colleague Harry ‘Thumper’ Crow (David Warner).
Harry doesn’t hold with supernaturalism, but over the next few days he’s going to see some very strange things indeed: a string of murdered magicians, a dead music-hall star come back to life, and a pensioner from the depths of hell.
Can Crow and Dunning find Lionheart? A terrible truth awaits, as they unearth the long-buried secrets of “The Magic Circle”
This is the sixth adventure of The Scarifyers.
