Episode: May 15th

Jonathan observes the Count climbing down the wall from his window several more times, and notices that the Castle is built on an outcropping so it is only accessible from one side. Once the Count was out of the castle, Jonathan goes exploring and finds the the front door was locked, and the key missing so he might not escape. He discovers a door which appeared to be locked, but which gave under pressure. The view from the window is breathtaking, and the furniture suggested that he stumbled into a disused ladies’ boudoir. Jonathan marvels at how untouched the castle is from Nineteenth century modernity. Follow us on Twitter.com/CryptiCanticles, Facebook.com/DraculaRadioPlay, and at crypticcanticles.com

Episode: May 12th

Jonathan Harker continues to be a guest of the Count. The Count begins to ask questions about how business is conducted in London, and whether he might employ multiple solicitors so that the whole of his business isn’t known by one man. He then asks Jonathan to write to his loved ones and tell them that he will be staying with the Count for a full month. Jonathan understands that protest is futile, so he does as he is asked. He notices that the Count is conducting business of his own, and has left a pile of letters on the table, whose destinations Jonathan notes. The Count returns and tells Jonathan that should he explore the castle, he must not fall asleep anywhere except in the rooms that are known to him. Whist exploring the Castle, Jonathan is alarmed to see the Count climb out his bedroom window and scurry down the exterior wall, head first, as a lizard climbs.
