Doctor Who – I Scream By Lance Parkin

The planet of Galspar is know across the universe for the quality of its ice cream.
Life on Galspar is perfect, at least that’s what the eyescreens tell us.

Some will tell you that if you look in the right places and ask the right questions, this perfection could be exposed as an illusion, and a terrible conspiracy.

But haven’t there always been those intent on disruption? Those who are not happy with the jobs they have selected?

Ignore these troublemakers and you’ll see that they just disappear. But for your own safety, do not ask where they go.

Midnight In Peking by Paul French

How the Murder of a Young Englishwoman Haunted the Last Days of Old China and how 75 years later, author Paul French has discovered the probable killer.

In January 1937, a British woman named Pamela Werner was found murdered near the ancient walls of Peking. With Japanese invaders near by, the CHinese police sought desperately to quickly identify the murderer, but were unable to do so.

The victim, Pamela Werner was the 19 year old daughter of British consul E. T. C. Werner and a resident in Peking. Her murder and mutilation has never been solved. Without specific evidence, the crime was attributed to a Japanese secret society or an American organized sex ring. An English resident in China claimed that Werner’s death was in retaliation for the killing of a Japanese soldier by British soldiers in a barroom brawl. British diplomats accepted this account and did not take the matter further.

The Candle In The Skull by Basil Copper

Martin, a husband and fathers attempts to dispose of his wife’s body but all does not go according to plan. But it does give his daughter a macabre treat for Halloween.

Two strands that run in this story, the presence of the strange daughter, and the revelation of the murder of her mother, are wonderfully woven together. Following the fathers death, the perspective is switched from the murderer in the third person, to that of the victim for the conclusion which adds much to the ending. Will Kathy get her wish for Halloween? And what is her future?

Read by Gerard McDermott
