All New Brief Encounters: The Demon Barber

April 5, 2021

We have a surprise for you today. The debut of an all new Brief Encounter adventure from Paul Williams featuring the Fifth Doctor and Turlough – The Demon Barber.

London 1800. People are disappearing from the streets near the barber’s shop of Sweeney Todd. The Doctor and Turlough chase an alien rodent to the house of Todd’s lover. Turlough finds a tunnel to the shop, with bodies inside, but the Bow Street runners find and arrest him. Charged with murder he and Todd stand trial at the Old Bailey. The Doctor uses his political connections to hire a young but skeptical lawyer.

They have two days to save Turlough’s life by proving the existence of an alien that looks like a rat and hides inside bodies. With the lover, who harbored the creature, dead there is nobody to help them.

They search through graveyards and abandoned houses for a spaceship the size of a cardboard box. Finding nothing the Doctor leaves, apparently defeated. Meanwhile the gallows is being built, the crowds are arriving to watch the executions and somewhere nearby the alien is hungry again.

The Demon Barber is available to download free in PDF format which can be read on your PC, laptop, eReader and tablet.
