Fairly decent detective Drayton Trench stars in a brand new six-part globetrotting adventure radio serial for Bedlam Radio, “Great Caesar’s Ghost!”

Only the delightfully unassuming detective Drayton Trench and his plucky young secretary Marjorie can locate a kidnapped archaeologist in a case that will take them from Old Kent Road to Paris, the Carpathian mountains and finally to the centre of Rome as they do battle with a seductive assassin, a Transylvanian countess and a gaggle of mad classicist cultists.

Written and directed by David K. Barnes for Bedlam Radio, and starring some of the EUTC’s finest and funniest acting talent, “Drayton Trench in: Great Caesar’s Ghost” is a whimsical, exciting and hilarious comic adventure.

Starring Paul Brotherston and Catherine White with Chris Craig Harvey, Alexandra Wetherell, Connor Jones, Sarah McGuinness and Dylan Read. Produced by Celia Dugua. Musical & sfx editing - David K. Barnes
