What is The Springheel Saga?

The 39 Steps… with Monsters! An epic radio SF/Fantasy drama series set in the Victorian era, full of action, adventure, and suspense.

Series Two of The Springheel Saga – The Legend of Springheel’d Jack, set in 1845, follows on eight years after the first series. When Maria Davies is murdered by a manically swazzling, spring-booted killer, Springheel Jack is immediately blamed. However, Detective Inspector Jonah Smith isn’t so sure, and quickly finds himself framed for an equally hideous crime…

Starring Christopher Finney, John Holden-White, Andrew Shepherd and Josephine Timmins, with Nicholas Parsons.
