When you check out Mockery Manor for the first time, don’t be bamboozled by the trailer, which makes this story seem almost sweet and nostalgic. From the first episode, we start to understand why this is the place “where childhood never dies.”
The acting is incredible. The characters become firmly fixed in our minds, as we sympathize with the mild-mannered ones and despise those who make us feel like cowering in fear.
Backstories are cleverly interwoven, so we feel like we know the key players intimately, and the dialogue is extremely well-crafted, with comedic bits thrown in for good measure.
We know that something strange is happening at this odd theme park, and it keeps us at the edge of our seats. It has a distinct haunted house feel. Between the people who keep going missing, screams heard in the scare maze, and a cat stained with blood, it’s no surprise that this full-cast production was a British Podcast Awards 2020 Best Fiction Nominee.
Now in Season 2, listeners are brought into the story three years after the events of Season 1, and we can’t wait to see what will happen to main character JJ as she lays low at Mockery Manor’s sister park, Dunkelschloss. Nothing stays hidden for long in this story.
