Part of Bedfest 2012


For those who missed our original broadcast as part of Bedlam Festival 2012, you can still stream the show online.

Fairly decent detective Drayton Trench stars in a brand new six-part globetrotting adventure radio serial for Bedlam Radio, “Great Caesar’s Ghost!”

Only the delightfully unassuming detective Drayton Trench and his plucky young secretary Marjorie can locate a kidnapped archaeologist in a case that will take them from Old Kent Road to Paris, the Carpathian mountains and finally to the centre of Rome as they do battle with a seductive assassin, a Transylvanian countess and a gaggle of mad classicist cultists.

Written and directed by David K. Barnes for Bedlam Radio, and starring some of the EUTC’s finest and funniest acting talent, “Drayton Trench in: Great Caesar’s Ghost” is a whimsical, exciting and hilarious comic adventure.

Starring Paul Brotherston and Catherine White with Chris Craig Harvey, Alexandra Wetherell, Connor Jones, Sarah McGuinness and Dylan Read. Produced by Celia Dugua. Musical & sfx editing - David K. Barnes
