Halloween – the traditional day for trick or treat and fancy dress parties; a season heavily marketed by “haunted” hotels and theme parks; an evening where everyone half expects something to go “bump” in the night.
And this evening, at Dunnem Inn – a hotel nominated for “Britain’s Most Haunted” – something has gone “bump”. Or rather, someone… as Lesley Downe, wife of Count Downe, co-owner of Dunnem Inn is dead.
The question is… was she scared to death by their ghost – or is there a much more earthly cause of her demise?
Yvonne Bitemeneck – Self-proclaimed vampire hunter.
Fond of twilight and late evenings, Yvonne is a seductive Goth, prone to flights of fancy.
Count Downe – Owner of Dunnem Inn.
Always smartly dressed in his dark suit and cape, Count Downe has a fondness for full-bodied wines.
Carrie Onwailin – Receptionist at Dunnem Inn.
Easily frightened, pale and ghostly, Carrie Onwailin is scared of her own shadow, especially when dressed up for Halloween!
Seymour Gools – Celebrity ghost hunter.
With a tweed jacket and an array of electronic gizmos, Seymour is ardent in his pursuit of spectral anomalies.
Lisa Cauldron – Local apothecary.
Somewhat cranky and best to be avoided when working, Lisa is usually dressed in dishevelled black and is often found talking to herself.
Lucas Fang – Night porter at the Dunnem Inn.
Somewhat hairy and prone to howling at the moon, Lucas has a bit of a split personality. You never know quite where you stand with him!
