The Legend of Springheel’d Jack is a three part series which picks up seven years after series One ended. From talented writers Robert Valentine and Jack Bowman, this radio play has high production value, excellent acting and a brilliant and thrilling storyline.

It starts with the murder of thirteen-year-old pickpocket Maria Davis. But was it at the hand of Springheel’d Jack?

Detective Inspector Jonah Smith is still obsessed with Springheel’d Jack. The one he hasn’t caught. Set in Victorian London, it catches the spirit and hard times of Victorian London well; The Legend of Springheel’d Jack is thrilling and it really draws you in. The characters are strong and the storyline is fun, grisly and exciting. It leaves you wanting more. I often find that radio plays are underrated and do not get the audience they deserve and I hope The Legend of Springheel’d Jack finds a very large audience as it certainly deserves it: thoroughly entertaining.

The Legend of Springheel’d Jack : The Terror of London will be released on 9th December 2013.
