The Strange Case of Springheel’d Jack – A Three Part Audio Drama

Looking for some audio adventures on ye olde streets of London then The Strangecase of Spingheel’d Jack  may be right up your cobbled street. Although I’ve only listened to the first episode of this three part audio drama, launched  by the Wireless Theater Company  I’m already hooked. It’s got fantastic acting, action and some great effects which really helped with the scene setting. The story follows the adventures of the Jonah Smith as he seeks to uncover the truth behind the urban legend of Spring-heeled Jack perhaps finds something far darker emerging on the streets of London.

One of the cast is Julian Glover who will be familiar to Indiana Jones fans as he played chief baddie Walter Donovan in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
