“A shovel and a trip through Eagle Hill Cemetery at this hour? You sure know how to show a girl a good time, Sabrina.”
Sabrina Stuart nee Jennings meets up with her cousin by marriage Amy Jennings, still at Collinsport after the events in last month’s The Happier Dead. Weaning Amy away from her studies, the two head out to the cemetery to dig up the corpse of Gerard Stiles…who like Judah Zachary before him, is bereft of head…
“Root, petals…what’s the difference?”
“Well, one’s a potion that neutralizes a voodoo priestess, and the other’s a marinade that goes quite nicely with fish.”
A weird old man with an affected voice delivers the traditional voiceover bringing us into yet another episode of the Big Finish take on Dark Shadows. This month’s story? A disarmingly romantic adventure cum horror that moves straight from light diversion into what appears to be a recurrent focus for the line on tragedy for all involved.
