"...perfectly timed for the fireside", one of the Sunday Independent's "newly hatched gems" (December 2022). SEASON ONE is a twelve part story of love, madness, murder, mysteries and dead gods set in Ireland and England. Kilphaun Hall sits high on a ridge overlooking the Blackwater river in County Waterford. Abandoned and silent for so long, it echoes now to the cheerful sounds of renovation and preparations for the coming social season of winter 1925. But Kilphaun Hall has its secrets and some places are best left to rot, forgotten. Set between England and the uneasy peace of post-Civil War Ireland, newly returned Captain Jon Ross must survive both local hostility and the increasingly sinister happenings at the house as his English fiancée Elizabeth Sanderson risks London’s occultist demi-monde in a race to save him. In SEASON TWO Elizabeth comes to the fore as she sets off for Egypt in a possibly foolhardy quest for a cure for her stricken brother and now appears to have gotten herself mixed up in something very sinister, involving ancient Egyptian gods, cursed expeditions, murderous secret societies and imperial ambitions.

I’m still Evo Terra ,

Pay attention!

You may be tempted to let your mind wander as you listen to this slow-burn horror series. Yeah, don't do that. You'll miss a lot, and a lot comes at you fast. And it's good stuff!

Awesome slow-burn goodness

I’m always on the hunt for good slow-burn thrillers and this one of the best I’ve heard. If you’re looking for jump scares and gore or background chatter it might not be your thing. You need to pay attention to the details but it quickly starts to pay off.

Love the show!

Great story, great voice actors and sound effects. I’m really enjoying the relationship between John and Elizabeth, and the story gets quite brutal in places!
