Episode 2

Lionheart is missing. To track him down, Professor Dunning has joined forces with his old colleague Harry 'Thumper' Crow. But meanwhile, strange things are happening all over London: magicians are being murdered, and a dead music-hall star has come back to life.

Can Crow and Dunning find Lionheart? A terrible truth awaits, as they unearth the long-buried secrets of The Magic Circle.

This is the sixth story in supernatural comedy series 'The Scarifyers.' The series follows the exploits of 1930s ghost-story writer Professor Dunning (Terry Molloy) and Detective Inspector Lionheart (Nicholas Courtney), who together investigate weird mysteries under the auspices of top-secret government department MI-13.

In 2011, Nicholas Courtney passed away. 'The Magic Circle' introduces a new lead character, played by David Warner, and serves as a farewell to both Lionheart and to the actor who played him.
