The Lady of the House of Love

By Angela Carter. A virginal English soldier, travelling through Romania by bicycle, finds himself in a deserted village. Read by David Tennant.

This wonderful retake on the Sleeping Beauty story first appeared in Carter's 1979 volume "The Bloody Chamber".

A virginal English soldier, travelling through Romania by bicycle, finds himself in a deserted village. He comes across a mansion inhabited by a vampiress who survives by enticing young men into her bedroom and feeding on them. She intends to feed on the young soldier but his purity and virginity have a curious effect on her.......

David Tennant returns with another selection of chilling Vampire stories.
Last year in the first series we concentrated on Victorian Vampire output but in these five tales we enter the 20th Century and introduce stories with a little twist from the UK and the USA.

Producer: Clive Brill
A Pacificus Production for BBC Radio 4.
