Publisher's Summary

Baker's End: Gobbleknoll Hall brings together Tom Baker, former Doctor Who companion Katy Manning, and comedienne Diane Morgan (Philomena Cunk from Charlie Brooker's Weekly Wipe) for a tale of television ghost hunters, dead glam-rock stars and goblins.
Ghost-hunting TV show Manifest Yourself is filming an overnight vigil in the infamous Gobbleknoll Hall, deep in the murksome woods somewhat near the village of Happenstance! When Mrs Frimbly gets wind of these swervish developments, she is terribly excited: she's a huge fan of the show.
But the spirits of Gobbleknoll Hall are not to be messed about with, as the King of Cats knows all too well! Why is the crepusular mansion haunted by the jangling of ancient glam-rock anthems? What is the secret of the phantom boozer in the basement? And what the fudgeknocking blazes is Mrs Frimbly playing at?

What the Critics Say

"As totally insane as its predecessor...this second Baker's End adventure is a delight from start to finish." (9/10, Sci-Fi Bulletin)
"Paul Magrs has done it again! This time writing a sequel to the BBC Audio Drama Award nominated Baker's End: The King of Cats that's not only is as good as the first but surpasses it!.... The kooky fun really shines through with the endless wordplay and the shades of the absurd and the macabre. When the cast is having a good time, it really shows through the finished product." (We Are Cult)
"In truth, there is nothing else out there, and nothing else quite as "out there" as Baker's End. It manages to be hilarious and heart-warming, as well as manic and melancholy too and if you enjoyed The King of Cats, then Gobbleknoll Hall is surely a must have." (5/5, Cultbox)

Bafflegab + Paul Magrs = Pure Joy

Any additional comments?

Bafflegab have produced some of the very best audio dramas (The Scarifyers) and once again they have teamed up with writer Paul Magrs (The Brenda and Effie Mysteries) for Baker’s End.

The story starts when Suzy Goshawk (narrator + played by Katy Manning) travels to Happenstance for Tom Baker’s funeral (played by himself), but not all as it seems.

Some stories are predictable, this is not. It’s bonkers and a highly enjoyable listen.

Episode 01 - King of Cats
Episode 02 - Gobbleknoll Hall
Episode 03 - Tatty Bogle

Only three episodes have been produced so far, but I do hope the saga of Baker’s End continues……..
