Uncork the scotch and make yourself a branded instant soup as we have exciting news: the second half of series three is on the way and we're teaming up with Definitely Human Productions to make it happen.


Definitely Human have been producing podcasts since 2014, first with The Bunker, a fictional breakfast radio show set in the post-apocalypse; then with Mars based sitcom MarsCorp, the first episode of which was picked by Wired as one of their podcasts of the week. They currently produce the role playing game horror series The Infinite Bad, so The Monster Hunters should be in perfect company. It feels like the perfect fit.’ says Matthew, who co-writes and plays Roy Steel. ‘I’ve had the pleasure of working on MarsCorp and other projects with them for the last four years and I think they’re the right people to be looking after Roy and Lorrimer. I’m really pleased to have the chance to bring the story we’ve been building up to over the last few episodes to its exciting and gruesome conclusion!’


In addition to brand new episodes there’ll be a chance to catch up with the story so far as The Monster Hunters’ back catalogue will also be available. There’s a full 24 episodes to enjoy, comprising the first two series', the first half of series 3 and a number of special Christmas and Halloween episodes. But there’s still something there for long term listeners as each episode will include bonus content going behind the scenes to explore the genesis of the Monster Hunters so whether you’re a new listener or old, you’re in for a fang-tastic time.

We're thrilled to announce that Dan Starkey will be joining us for our upcoming episode, Destroy All Monster Hunters!


Dan will be familiar to fans of Doctor Who as Strax, the Sontaran butler to Victorian adventuresses Madame Vastra and Jenny. He's also appeared in Wizards versus Aliens and The Sarah Jane Adventures, as well as working for Big Finish Productions. You might have also seen Dan as a visiting artist for The Fitzrovia Radio Hour.


Dan will be playing Sir Princely Mothman, a figure who will cross the path of Roy Steel and Lorrimer Chestefield as they investigate the deaths of the country's other top monster hunters. 'It was a huge pleasure to work with Dan,' said Peter Davis, otherwise known as Lorrimer Chesterfield. 'He's a nice guy and a great performer. His Sir Princely was brilliantly funny. He also chipped in with a voice for another character in the story and he was unrecognisable, even switching from one to the other in a scene!'


Destroy All Monster Hunters, our first adventure for 2014, will be available to stream and download soon.

Dan Starkey prepares us for Sir Princely. Simon Kane witnesses.
