Catch Shilling & Sixpence Investigate in the first series of their murder mystery adventures, out now.
February 1939. Desmund Shilling arrives in Morlington Hill, deep in the heart of Cornwall, having been given the post of Head of English at Morlington School for Girls by the hearty headmistress Lavinia Sixpence.
Not far away, at Boothby Hall, Inspector Cribbage and Sergeant Salt are investigating the horrific murder of Lord Pluck – who is to blame? His grieving widow, Lady Penelope? His impetuous son, Viscount Robert? The no-nonsense cook, or the handsome young school caretaker Joseph?
Miss Sixpence and Mr Shilling mount their own investigation, and very soon, horrible truths come to light…
“I would sum up Shilling & Sixpence Investigate as Agatha Christie meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer with a hint of Wilde,” says director Samuel Clemens in Vortex magazine. “A sprawling murder mystery epic. Be sure to keep your ears pricked up for all the juicy details that are woven through it.” Read more in August’s free Vortex magazine.
Shilling & Sixpence Investigate is available as part of the Big Finish Originals range, a new wave of original drama launched to celebrate 20 years of award-winning audio publishing. The eight-episode series will be available on download (only) from Big Finish in September 2018 at a pre-order price of £17.
