S5E14 – 2023 Almanac Part 1

2023 Almanac Part 1

What a year! James and Alasdair are counting down the top 14 (fourteen) episodes of 2023 (twenty twenty-three). This is only part one, so prepare yourself for eight of our highlights from last year. (Yes, it would have made more sense to do seven, but we got carried away.)

If you don’t want to know the results, look away now…

  • 14: The Spitting Ghost of Haddon Hall
  • 13: Denizens of Another World
  • 12: The Vampyre with Sacha Coward
  • 11: The Devil’s Hoofprints
  • 10: The Queen Rat with Tom Mayhew
  • 09: The Flaming Head of Norton Mill
  • 08: The Denham Tracts
  • 07: Kelpies of Kintyre

There’s also a cameo from Geordie Samuel L. Jackson.


The Loremen are Alasdair Beckett-King & James Shakeshaft.
