Episode 2 – Lost Hearts

Lost Hearts (1973 TV version) ScreenshotThis week we tackle Lost Hearts by M.R. James, a spine-chilling tale featuring ghostly orphans! Talking rats! Diabolical alchemy! Gore! A shower scene! (sort of).

Also in this episode:

  • Mike tweaks his hurgy gurdy around the house
  • Will says ‘Dun Dun Duuunnn!’ more than is strictly necessary
  • We both says ‘evocative’ more than is strictly necessary and then get really, really depressed

A big THANKS goes out to Kirsty Woodfield who brought a much-needed touch of class to the proceedings by doing an excellent job with the readings.
