01: THE NAZAD CONSPIRACY
Ghost story writer Professor Dunning (Terry Molloy) doesn't believe in the supernatural. So he's more than surprised when an invisible winged demon appears in his drawing room.
The Metropolitan Police's longest-serving officer, Inspector Lionheart (Nicholas Courtney), doesn't believe in the supernatural either, wings or no wings. So he's less than impressed when Russian emigres begin dying impossible deaths all over London.
Together, Lionheart and Dunning must face quarrelsome Generals, sinister clowns and Russian demons as they unravel THE NAZAD CONSPIRACY.
This is the first adventure of THE SCARIFYERS.
“Terry Molloy (aka Davros) plays a professor and writer of supernatural stories who gets drawn into a part-criminal, part-spooky nightmare with a policeman played by Nicholas Courtney (who used to assist the Doctor as Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart). It's got a ludicrous plot involving demons, the Romanov family and an attempt to bring Rasputin back from the dead, but it's rollicking good fun as well.”
“The first story in the Scarifyers series, The Nazad Conspiracy... is, in many ways, the bastard child of Douglas Adams and a sort of period Avengers, with all the quintessentially deadpan wit that implies… It tries hard not to be laugh-out-loud and for that very reason, is exactly that - peppered with the sort of unflappably dry and English wit that has been sadly lacking in recent British light drama… For its three-week-run, it was quite simply the smartest and most enjoyable thing on British radio.”
