A Gem of a Find

I'm a big fan of The Colonial Radio Players, especially the Father Brown series. I had never heard of Jarrem Lee- Ghost Hunter before and really liked this. Will download the whole series. And yes, I know the English accents are a bit dodgy, sometimes a bit Dick Van Dyke in places but as an English person this makes me laugh and is part of the appeal !

Neophyte Ghost Hunters start here!

What did you love best about Jarrem Lee - Ghost Hunter - The Tollington Hall Case, The Ancient Burial Barrow, Lord Wentworth's Statue and Professor Taylor's Final Experiment?

Tollington Hall case sets the scene for the rest of the series, introducing characters, methods, and menaces. Brilliant! Ancient Burial Barrow is my favorite. Nothing in the episode is ever scene by Lee and Bennett, only experienced. This is the most subtle way to frighten. Lord Wentworth's statue is pure occult detective at the turn of the century. The episode is delightfully filled with occult references. The final episode is Professor Taylor's Final Experiment. It's a combo of science and occult both H.G. Wells, Thomas Edison, and Jules Verne would've loved. Volume 1 stands alone.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Having listened to a lot of old time radio, I expected to know all the answers and what CRT pulled off with Jarrem Lee had me ready to buy the next volume!

Have you listened to any of Jerry Robbins and The Colonial Radio Players ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Dandelion Wine, Something Wicked, Captain Blood, Ticonderoga, Jeeves & Wooster. Jarrem Lee establishes the line for Jerry Robbins and CRT in their occult detective shows.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yup; and again.
