British Podcast Awards 2020 'Best Fiction' Nominee. Summer, 1989. Mockery Manor's new staff have moved into the on-site lake house, ready for the re-opening of Britain's most eccentric theme park. It's a teen dream of a job (as long as you've never seen Friday the 13th), and eighteen year old twins JJ and Bette are determined to leave a difficult year behind them and have a summer straight from the movies... if they don't kill each other first. But something's happening at the park. People keep going missing, and JJ has a horrible feeling the screams she heard in the scare maze were more than just a frightened guest. And why is feline park mascot Mr Crackles covered in blood? Mockery Manor is a full-cast production best enjoyed using headphones.

A sneak preview of the Mockery Manor theme tune, composed by Laurence Owen. Episode 1 of this new narrative mystery series arrives on October 31st, 2019. Strap in!

Despite arriving forty-seven minutes and three days late for her first day of training, 18-year-old JJ is keen to explore Mockery Manor, the peculiar theme park she now calls home. Seasoned staff member Parker shows her around, but after an unnerving trip to Dreamland, JJ is certain that something is very wrong at Mockery Manor...

Previously on Mockery Manor: JJ is shown around the park by seasoned employee Parker. While exploring the sinister Dreamland, which records snippets of guests as they explore it, JJ hears a recording that sounds suspiciously like a woman being attacked. Parker says that he and his new girlfriend, JJ's twin sister Bette, are going to break into the park after dark, and JJ decides to tag along.  In this episode: JJ is sharing an onsite dormitory with the intimidating Sonia, who is determined to make JJ's life miserable. An after-hours jaunt around the park with Parker and Bette leads to tensions in the group, and Parker reveals that they aren't the only residents of Mockery Manor. The park's founder, Margot Mockery, still lives in the decrepit manor house at the heart of the park... and they're being watched.

Previously on Mockery Manor: JJ, Parker and Bette sneak into the park at night to explore. They meet fellow employees Matty, Sonia and Emma, who have snuck in too. Sonia accuses JJ of stealing something from her dorm room, and JJ and Bette have an argument. Meanwhile, Parker explains that Margot Mockery, the park's founder, still lives in the manor house. Margot and her associate are keeping a watchful eye on the kids via their security cameras. Parker hears a scream and runs off to investigate. In this episode: JJ dupes Manager Norton with some quick thinking, and Parker is forced on a strange mission.

Previously on Mockery Manor: JJ is caught in the park after hours by Manager Norton, but fools him into thinking she's Bette - her twin sister. Meanwhile Parker investigates a high-pitched scream, and finds a terrified Matty cowering in a supply cupboard, having seen "a big cat". Parker leaves him, laughing, and bumps into Emma, who has Sonia's bracelet in her possession (which everyone thinks JJ has stolen) and he takes it from her. Parker then realises Matty is right: Winnie, a cougar kept by Margot in secret, has escaped. Parker tracks Winnie to the Heart of Darkness ride, and finds her eating the body of Nick, the caretaker. Horrified, Parker calls Jenkins, whose suspicions are now confirmed. People are being murdered in the park... again. In this episode: the park is now open! A frustrated JJ is determined to get some answers... and more blood is shed.

Previously on Mockery Manor: Everything is open, but Parker hasn't been seen for days, as he is now living in the Manor house. Emma tells JJ that Parker has Sonia's stolen charm bracelet (despite everyone thinking JJ is the thief), and tells her to make Parker give it back. Furious, JJ sneaks into the Manor to find Parker. He tells her that he is now head of security, and has been keeping an eye on everyone while dressed as Mr Crackles. In costume, he gives JJ the bracelet during the parade. JJ is shocked to discover a tag belonging to her Auntie Janet's dog Harvey attached to the bracelet. At that moment, Sonia, who is dressed as Queen Booboos, falls hard from the top of a parade float.  In this episode: JJ learns that she may be at Mockery Manor for a reason, and Bette is pushed to breaking point.  Follow @MockeryManor and @LongCatMedia on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, and visit for more info.

Previously on Mockery Manor: After Parker shows her the photograph of Auntie Janet with Margot and the park contractors, JJ realises that Janet was the screaming woman from the Dreamland recording. She runs to call the police, but is distracted by her ex-boyfriend Graham, who has run away from his wife and unexpectedly arrived at the park. Needing a place to stay, JJ escorts Graham to the uninhabited gardener's cottage in the woods. But once he is alone, Graham becomes the third victim of the Mockery Manor murderer. Meanwhile, a terrified and dishevelled Bette reappears in the park. The twins are reunited, and Bette tells JJ that Manager Norton abducted and drugged her. Bette had awoken in the woods to find Norton digging a hole, before she overpowered him, and beat him to death with his shovel.

CW: Violence, child abuse descriptions Previously on Mockery Manor: JJ hatches a plan to help Bette escape the park and evade the police, after learning that she has killed Norton. Bette reveals that she is familiar with the park's underground tunnels, and they decide to hide there until nightfall. However, they meet Parker in the tunnels, and JJ brings him in on the plan - much to Bette's concern. Meanwhile, Margot's mother Dorothy has appeared, and Jenkins explains that Janet (Dorothy's daughter, Margot's sister and the twins' aunt) is the latest in a series of murders at the park, which appear to be connected. Back in the tunnels, Bette recognises Norton with his arm around Janet in the old photo, and Parker agrees to cover for the twins to allow Bette to escape. He lies to the police - but his cover story accidentally incriminates JJ in the recent murder of her ex-boyfriend Graham. In this episode: the police continue to hunt for the twins, tensions rise between JJ, Bette and Parker, and Dorothy tells JJ a story... Support us on Ko-fi! (
