Elsinore: The Complete Series 1 and 2: Hamlet. Claudius. The Beginning. The Truth. Audiobook

Elsinore: The Complete Series 1 and 2: Hamlet. Claudius. The Beginning. The Truth.

Author: Sebastian Baczkiewicz Narrator: Full Cast, John Heffernan, John Light Release Date: February 2021

Hamlet. Claudius. The Beginning. The Truth. How did Claudius become the man he is in Shakespeare's Hamlet? What were the real reasons behind the murder of his brother? How does he really feel about his nephew? These questions will be answered in this drama spiced with ghosts, pirates, magic and political skulduggery. Set in an alternative Europe in the 1930-50s, Elsinore is a prequel to Shakespeare's Hamlet. This compelling drama imagines the turbulence of the Danish court in a world where Denmark is a powerful, militarised country with a small empire around the Baltic that it is fighting hard to maintain. There is more than a hint of totalitarianism in the air. In this uneasy setting, Elsinore delves into the troubled, not to say murderous relationship between King Hamlet and his brother, Claudius: one of the most interesting characters in the Shakespearean canon. Realism meets with moments of otherworldliness as the story unravels, taking in pirates and magic, rebellion and betrayal. A dark, exciting drama that touches on the events and people in Shakespeare's play and brings us to the moment where Hamlet begins. From the extraordinary imagination of Sebastian Baczkiewicz, writer of the successful Pilgrim series. Directed by Marc Beeby and Sasha Yevtushenko.

Pilgrim: The Timbermoor Imp: The BBC Radio 4 fantasy drama series

Author: Sebastian Baczkiewicz Narrator: Full Cast, Louis Jay Jordan, Paul Hilton, Stefan Adegbola Release Date: January 2021

Pilgrim walks again between the worlds of magick and of men in this eerie supernatural adventure Fated to eternally walk the line between the worlds of faerie and men, reluctant hero Pilgrim finds himself facing an old adversary in this superbly uncanny two-parter. When he donates a priceless portrait to the struggling Timbermoor Museum to ensure it stays open, there's one particular shabby exhibit Pilgrim hopes to keep safe. So he's disconcerted to hear that the item in question, Cochrane's Boot, has got lost in transit. But someone has found it - and unleashed the spirit within it. Troubled teen Rabbit Owen has been shunned by the townsfolk since he unwittingly caused the death of his friend, but now, with the help of his 'auntie', it's payback time... Meanwhile, guilt-ridden museum curator John Wayne pays a visit to the exclusive, elusive Grey Lodge Chalets, situated in an ancient grove deep in the heart of the woods. He needs to speak to one of the residents, but first he must deliver a tithe to the sinister supervisor, Mr Buttoner. John is willing to pay - but he has no idea how high the price will be. With the Timbermoor Imp, Sally Mop, liberated from her prison, Rabbit is riding high - and as Hallowe'en arrives and the locals prepare to gather around the Sun Stone for their annual celebrations, the stage is set for a much darker ritual. Can Pilgrim save John from a dance with death, turn Rabbit away from revenge, and prevent a terrible sacrifice? Cast: William Palmer ..... Paul Hilton John ..... Stefan Adegbola Rabbit .....

The Pilgrim: The Winter Queen: The BBC Radio 4 fantasy drama series

Author: Sebastian Baczkiewicz Narrator: , Carolyn Pickles, Fenella Woolgar, Paul Hilton Release Date: January 2019

Every year, on the winter solstice, the small town of Melcombe observes an annual custom, the roots and meaning of which are lost in the mists of time. A torch-lit procession to the ancient tomb of Cairndale Knapp, overlooking the town, puts the old sun to bed, and greets the new sun in the morning, restoring balance to the year. This year, however, Mr Sam Notice has bought the Knapp, and has set about landscaping it. And, with the felling of an ancient yew tree, the roots and meaning of the old custom spring malevolently to life, as the Winter Queen is finally released from her prison, and bent on revenge. Told over the two days of the winter solstice - Pilgrim walks again between the worlds of magick and of men.
