|'The Beast of Orlok'
by Barnaby Edwards
The Beast of Orlok has returned to haunt us!
Germany, 1827. The town of Orlok is under a curse, haunted by the memory of a spate of grisly murders that shattered the community twenty years before. At the time, townsfolk blamed the legendary Beast of Orlok, a nightmarish creature from medieval folklore.
And now, it seems, the Beast has returned. As the killings begin again, the people of Orlok are understandably suspicious of two strangers newly arrived in their midst. The Doctor and Lucie must face their darkest fears as they find themselves plunged into a decidedly grim fairytale.
Paul McGann (The Doctor), Sheridan Smith (Lucie Miller), Miriam Margolyes (Frau Tod), Peter Guinness (Baron Teufel), Samuel Barnett (Hans), Nick Wilton (Otto Pausbacken), Trevor Cooper (Judah / Coachman / Grinsen), Alison Thea-Skot (Greta), Nicholas Briggs (Lugner / Wolf)
