Throw another pumpkin on the fire, becase The Monster Hunters are back in a brand new adventure for Halloween!


Sir Maxwell House has assigned Roy Steel and Lorrimer Chesterfield their most dangerous and taxing assignment yet - checking up on an friend of his who's gone a bit funny. But things take a darker turn when they are introduced to a new craze sweeping through high society - personal waxworks. Could these lifelike reproductions be almost too lifelike?

We're happy to announce that The Monster Hunters are back for a brand new episode!


Following a bit of time off for good behaviour, Roy Steel and Lorrimer Chesterfield are back on the case in a special Halloween adventure called The Doll's House.


"Both Peter Davis and I have had a bit of a busy year with other projects this year,' Matthew Woodcock (Roy Steel) explains. 'We've been itching for a chance to get back to besting monsters and it's finally come together in time for Halloween!'


When Roy and Lorrimer are asked by Sir Maxwell House to check on an acquaintance of his, the trail leads to a sculptor of private waxworks. Is this the ultimate vanity project for wealthy industrialists or is something more sinister going on?


The Monster Hunters: The Doll's House should be ready for your ears on 31st October.

The scotch and the book. It can mean only one thing...THEY are returning!

Draw the curtains, stoke the fire and attach an intravenous drip of scotch because it's time for The Monster Hunters Christmas special!


Roy and Lorrimer are back in (we hope) their most chilling adventure yet. Summoned by Telex and the promise of danger to a remote Swiss castle, Roy Steel finds that he may be too late to save Lorrimer Chesterfield from a fate created by his own curiosity. What links the mysterious creature stalking the grounds to the writings of minor 17th century philosopher Simon Diablo? What does cream of scotch branded instant soup actually taste like? What is the reason for Frau Goesler's gallows humour? All or some of these questions will be answered as we settle down for the Monster Hunters ghost story for Christmas, available to download or stream ethereally, much like a spectre...


Written and directed by Peter Davis and Matthew Woodcock, with Matthew Woodcock as Roy Steel, Peter Davis as Lorrimer Chesterfield, Laura Marshall as Frau Goesler and Simon Kane as Klimt and Sir Maxwell House.

A terrible box that must never be opened...

An ancient horror, its talons on a mission to kill!

A dark night, a fearsome tale, an instant soup. It can only be The Monster Hunters Christmas Special!


Join us for The Box of Desires, our ghost story for Christmas, written by and starring Peter Davis and Matthew Woodcock, with Laura Marshall and Simon Kane. Coming to haunt your ears very soon.

We’ve got a halloween treat for you, as the Monster Hunters live special – A Knife at the Museum is now available to stream and download!


When an old face from Sir Maxwell House’s past returns, Roy and Lorrimer embark on an adventure that takes them from a high class London restaurant to the disused underground station of Devil’s Halt. What links Sir Maxwell to a gruesome and bloody death? Join The Monster Hunters for an adventure that could possible shake them to their very cores! Or not.


This episode was recorded in front of a live audience at the Etcetera Theatre, Camden as part of the 2014 London Horror Festival. This means that it might sound a little different to our regular episodes but it should still, we hope, be an enjoyable ride.


Written by Peter Davis and Matthew Woodcock. With Matthew Woodcock as Roy Steel, Peter Davis as Lorrimer Chesterfield and Slenderweave, Laura Marshall as Genevieve and Ada, and Simon Kane as Sir Maxwell House.
