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 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. For full info and credits, visit www.longcatmedia.com/mockery-manor Enjoying the series?

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.

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.

Previously: Three years have passed since the grisly events of Season One, and Mockery Manor’s new assistant manager Parker receives an unexpected phone call from Tokyo. JJ has fallen in with a bad crowd and needs help fleeing Japan. Parker arranges for JJ to travel to Germany and begin working at Dunkelschloss, Mockery Manor's sister park in the Black Forest. At the German park, employee Gretchen tries to remain professional while greeting guests, but her colleague Tomasz (dressed as mascot Eurobear) is behaving suspiciously, ultimately sneaking off to meet with a mysterious stranger. Meanwhile, Dunkelschloss's manager Hilda telephones Jenkins, and both are convinced the other is responsible for the disappearance of a large amount of theme park equipment on its way to Mockery Manor. Finally, a hitchhiking JJ is dumped by a lorry driver in the forest near Dunkelschloss. In a hollow tree, she hides something she cannot take with her, but cannot afford to lose. In this episode: JJ begins her shift at Jack's Giant Land, Jenkins gives Parker a difficult mission, and... Bette. Where has she been for the last three years?

Previously - Flashing back to New Year's Eve 1990, a disillusioned Bette leaves her pilled-up sister partying with strangers on a Thailand beach, and finds herself spilling her emotions to Chet, an American traveller. Chet invites Bette to come with him to the Himalayas to find inner peace, which she does... without JJ. Flashing forward to the present (1992), Hilda teaches JJ to drive the People Cart in the Vegetable Patch, Dunkelschloss's dullest edu-tainment offering. JJ panics at the mention of a ride called the Trousers Meowsers Mega Coaster, and Hilda informs her that they sometimes swap attractions with Mockery Manor. She also reveals that JJ will be staying in the semi-derelict schloss (castle) during her stay. Meanwhile, at Mockery Manor, Jenkins presses Parker to contact JJ and task her with spying on Hilda, whom he suspects is running an "illegal operation" from the German park. To their surprise, Bette then arrives at Mockery Manor and asks whether Margot's offer of a full-time job still stands. Finally, back in Tokyo, shadowy figures are disposing of a body. It seems unlikely that "the girl" is their colleague's killer, but they are determined to find her and retrieve the item she was supposed to deliver - a priceless, stolen Vermeer. In this episode: a desperate Bette is given a mission, while JJ seeks help from an unsavoury contact, settles into her new lodgings, and makes an unlikely friend. Mockery Manor is written and directed by Lindsay Sharman. Music, sound design and editing by Laurence Owen. Hayley Evenett was JJ and Bette, Laurence Owen was Parker, Jenkins and additional voices, Lindsay Sharman was Hilda, Margot and Davina, Alasdair Beckett-King was Tomasz and Dodgy Eric, and Abbie Eastwood was Gretchen.

Previously: JJ takes the scenic route to Hilda's office by riding The Elves of Europe and jumping off the boat at the Italy show scene. Using Hilda's phone, JJ contacts Dodgy Eric (her old flame, and generally an unsavoury character), and asks for his help selling her mysterious package - a stolen Vermeer painting - which he agrees to do. She is then escorted by Tomasz to her lodgings in the semi-derelict schloss at the centre of the park, which has no toilets. Meanwhile, Bette unexpectedly arrives at Mockery Manor and tells Margot, Jenkins and Parker that she has had a baby and needs a job. Jenkins presses her into spying on Hilda and the Dunkelschloss operations. Later that evening, JJ meets Gretchen sneaking around the park. They part ways at the toilets in Baba Yaga Land, but Gretchen tells JJ to be careful... She thinks there is something going on in the park. Something dangerous. JJ laughs and says "that's statistically unlikely". In this episode: Tomasz reports to Hilda, the twins are reunited in the Black Forest, and Parker starts an investigation of his own. Mockery Manor is written and directed by Lindsay Sharman. Music, sound design and editing by Laurence Owen.

Hilda believes Jenkins sent JJ to Dunkelschloss for a reason, and she wants to know what it is. Elsewhere, JJ is approached by a strange woman – it's Bette, in disguise. Bette gives JJ a letter from Mockery, a spy camera and a listening device, and leaves as quickly as she came. Back in England, Parker is clearly traumatised from the events of three years ago. Kelly tells him he needs 'closure'. Parker is inspired and resolves to talk to someone who can give him answers. JJ reads the letter. It's from Jenkins, who tells her to bug Hilda's phone and take photos of the contents of Dunkelschloss's lorries. Thomasz arrives and JJ asks him to drive her to the village. Elsewhere, Danil and Bohdanko have heard something interesting on the criminal grapevine – a man called Dodgy Eric has been making indiscreet enquiries while trying to sell a Vermeer. Bohdanko is dispatched to Amsterdam to have a word with him. In the final scene, Parker is led into a prison room and comes face-to-face with... Matty.

Previously: JJ went to the Cuckoo Hotel to ask Bette why she'd asked her to spy on Hilda. Mid-conversation, they discover Tomasz spying on them, and it emerges that Hilda had asked him to spy on JJ.

Matty refuses until Parker comes back with info on where Jenkins hid the body. In Amsterdam, gangster Bohdanko questions Dodgy Eric about JJ's whereabouts. In Germany, Hilda makes phonecalls to bring the mysterious Wizzzard 'Committee' together, so they can decide what to do about Jenkins.

Previously: In a flashback, Gretchen performs with her band Frostwald in the Dunkelschloss Battle of the Bands, but bandmate Gunther seems distracted. He tells her that something big is about to happen in the park. He has, of course, since disappeared. In the present day, JJ realises she cannot possibly sell the Vermeer, and breaks down in front of Bette, while Thomaz leaves to find Gretchen. JJ reveals that she arrived to drop off the painting in a Tokyo apartment to find her contact dead, and Russian gangster Bodhanko waiting to kill her, only narrowly escaping herself. Broke as they are, the twins agree they have no choice but to work for Jenkins. Meanwhile, Parker realises that Matty knows nothing about Smithy, and has been toying with him. But something Matty says hits home. Why does Jenkins keep taking the law into his own hands? What kind of man would do that? Desperate to escape, Parker phones the twins and tells them he is coming to Dunkelschloss.

Previously: Convinced that he is hiding something, Margot searches Jenkins' office. A panicked Davina radios to tell her that Jenkins is heading straight for her. When Jenkins arrives, Margot tells him she has been reminiscing about the days after the Mockery Manor fire. After they share an uncomfortable slow dance, Jenkins asks Margot what she is really doing there. Meanwhile, Bette borrows JJ's spare Dunkelschloss staff uniform so she can investigate in the park unnoticed. They agree to reconvene at the Schloss later that night. JJ does not yet know that Gretchen has escorted an injured Dodgy Eric to her room. Dressed as Eurobear, Thomaz escorts Giuseppe (manager of another Wizzzard Entertainment attraction) to Hilda's office in the Elves of Europe ride. While Thomaz waits outside, he is startled by Bette, who has followed them in. Exasperated, Thomaz insists that Bette steps inside the Eurobear suit with him, so as to avoid Hilda's security cameras. Together in the suit, they listen at Hilda's door. She says that "The Committee" will be here soon, and that there will be a reckoning. In this episode: Bette continues investigating, Parker makes his way to Dunkelschloss, JJ falls back into old bad habits, and Gretchen makes a discovery...

Previously: Crammed together in the same Eurobear costume, Thomaz and Bette have been eavesdropping outside Hilda's office as she speaks to her associate Giuseppe. They hear her mention "The Committee" before Thomaz helps Bette escape via an Elves of Europe boat. He tells her that he regularly escorts mysterious visitors to Hilda's office, and then to hidden rooms in the castle. Bette swears she's going to find those rooms. Meanwhile, Gretchen, having escorted a wounded Eric to JJ's room, finds one of these secret rooms - behind a bookcase deep in the crumbling castle. JJ finds Eric convalescing in her bed after being attacked by Bohdanko - the same gangster who nearly killed her in Tokyo. She is horrified that he got as far as finding Eric in Amsterdam, but Eric assures her he didn't tell Bohdanko anything that could lead him to her. But that's not all - Eric has found a buyer for the Vermeer, and JJ reluctantly agrees to go ahead with the sale. Meanwhile, Parker hitches a lift to Dunkelschloss with a slightly unsettling lorry driver, who has noticed a huge increase in the number of Wizzzard Entertainment trucks on the road... In this episode: Parker and Bette have a revelation at Dunkelschloss, Gretchen thrusts JJ deeper into the mystery, and trouble comes to town...

Previously: Parker bumps into Bette at the entrance to Dunkelschloss. They hide from Hilda by running into The Little Mermaid's Underwater Cave System, which, they notice, has the exact same layout as Mockery Manor's Dreamland. Parker tells Bette his suspicions - that Jenkins might had his dad killed, and that he is running some sort of shady business with Hilda. Bette explains that she eavesdropped on Hilda's meeting with "some Italian guy who wouldn't shut up about Beluga whales". Parker recognises that to be Giuseppe, and it all clicks: Wizzzard Entertainment is running a Europe-wide smuggling ring... and Hilda is going to dispose of Jenkins. Meanwhile, in the schloss, Gretchen has stumbled across a hidden room, where Giuseppe and two other Wizzzard park managers are chatting. They don't know why Hilda has called them all to a meeting, but Giuseppe says he is planning to retire. They discover Gretchen listening, and she runs off to tell JJ what she heard. Of course, JJ doesn't want to know - much to Gretchen's frustration. With Dodgy Eric (currently unconscious on JJ's bed) having found her a buyer for the Vermeer, JJ says she just wants to sell her painting, grab Bette, and get out of there. An irate Bette bursts in, accompanied by Parker, and demands that JJ abandons her plan to sell the painting. But before JJ can make up her mind, a sinister figure arrives, gun in hand. Bohdanko - the Russian gangster who tailed her from Japan, and beat up Eric for information in Amsterdam - has come to collect his prize.

Previously: Oh no! At the schloss, JJ, Bette, Gretchen and Parker are held at gunpoint by Bohdanko, the Russian gangster who has been chasing JJ across Europe in search of the stolen Vermeer. While Bohdanko demands that JJ take him to the painting, Gretchen tries to throw him off the scent. He is not so easily duped, and they are both taken hostage. Bette and Parker are left tied up in JJ's room, but they are rescued by Dodgy Eric, who has been playing dead on the bed for some time. Parker runs off to call the police, while Bette takes Eric's gun and goes in search of JJ and Gretchen. Meanwhile, JJ and Gretchen try and stall for time with an ever-more-dangerous Bohdanko. After several failed attempts to lose him, Bohdanko's phone rings. It becomes clear that he has double-crossed his boss, and is planning to steal the Vermeer for himself. In a desperate attempt to lose him, JJ and Gretchen lead Bohdanko to Wizzzard Entertainment's hidden rooms in the schloss. But when they get there, JJ realises they are not alone. She hides behind a sofa, and calls for Gretchen to do the same. Suddenly, Bohdanko is shot by an unknown someone...

Previously: Bodankho's shooter is revealed to be Hilda, accompanied by Thomaz (her reluctant henchman). Hilda is convinced that Gretchen and Bohdanko are working for Jenkins, so Thomaz is tasked with taking Gretchen as hostage to the Committee meeting at The Palace of Koschei The Deathless. But JJ, hiding behind a sofa, evades capture. Meanwhile, Parker frantically searches the park for a phone, and runs into Jenkins and his silent muscle, "Max". It emerges that Jenkins has a crack team of trained operatives scattered throughout the park. As they approach Koschei the Deathless, Parker notices that the ride building is a replica of the Mockery Manor house. Jenkins reveals that he and Hilda were stationed at the Schloss during the war, and that the pair went on to design the theme park together. But Hilda has betrayed him. And not only that, Jenkins says... Hilda was responsible for the murder of Parker's father. Armed with Eric's gun, Bette bursts into the Schloss' secret rooms to find JJ standing over Bohdanko's body. Together, they briefly consider fleeing, before finally resolving to go and rescue Gretchen. Over at Koschei, the Committee members are welcomed by Hilda. They will ride the "egg buggies" through the attraction and disembark at the Masquerade Ball for a buffet reception. But among the Committee members are two surprising guests - Margot and Davina.

Previously: as the Committee arrives at Koschei the Deathless for Hilda's meeting, JJ and Bette sneak in via a side entrance to try and rescue Gretchen. They stumble into the ride, and find themselves in a creepy but familiar kitchen, occupied by an animatronic witch. To her horror, JJ realises that the witch is modelled on Dorothy - Margot's mother, and the twins' grandmother. JJ recalls the Dreamland dollhouse, shown to her by Dorothy moments before she was murdered by Matty. This kitchen is identical to that of the dollhouse. It's Mockery Manor. The twins hop on a passing Egg Buggy, and discover that each room is a distorted, nightmarish reflection of the rooms of Mockery Manor. As they near the grand ballroom, the twins hop out of the Buggy to stay unnoticed. They are shocked to see Margot and Davina among the Committee members. Why are they there? And who's looking after baby Freddie? Meanwhile, Hilda is losing communication with her security unit as they are each taken out by Jenkins' men. "We're under attack" she radios to the others. "Retreat to Koschei and seal it. No-one gets in, no-one gets out. And if you see anyone you don't recognise... execute on sight." In this episode: Party time.

Previously: War! After negotiations with Hilda prove fruitless, Jenkins launches a full-scale offensive on the Committee. He tells them that the exits to Koschei the Deathless are all sealed, and his men have the ride surrounded. But Jenkins has a problem. Margot is here. Jenkins goes into the fray to retrieve Margot and escape before the final phase of his plan - explosives. As he leaves the control room, Jenkins gives Parker a message to read on the tannoy if he does not return with Margot. It will help her escape, but it's something only she would understand. Meanwhile - JJ, Bette, Gretchen, Thomaz and Davina are all still trapped in the building. Watching on the monitors, Parker is horrified to see the twins looking at one of Jenkins' bombs. Speaking into the tannoy, he cries out to them. But before he can be understood... ka-boom. In this episode: More ka-boom...

Download the Apollo app! Hey everyone, Laurence here - just a quick update with a little bit of exciting Mockery Manor news, and give a shout out to another show that we love.  We've been working on a little something before Season 3 starts next year.  Mockery Manor is going to have a Christmas Special! It's a brand new double-length episode, and it's coming out on the 1st of December. It was ridiculously fun to record, and we can't wait to share it with you.  So, how can you hear it? Well... you might have heard us advertising a wonderful app called Apollo - if you haven't, Apollo is a gorgeous new podcast player that's specifically geared towards fiction. And it's so worth checking out - you can find all your favourite audio dramas on there, and discover loads more. It's really easy to use, it's beautiful to look at, and my favourite part is that you can search and browse by genre of fiction. That's something no other podcast app can do. The Apollo team have also curated some really great themed lists to explore - I think our show The Ballad of Anne & Mary is on a list called "Cinematic Epic", which we really like. But there's a new feature on Apollo - you can now support the shows you love by purchasing additional content directly on the app, and then you can listen immediately. Right now you can get bonus episodes of Omen, Sidequesting, Someone Dies In This Elevator, Midnight Burger has bonus content coming soon, loads of great shows. And on the 1st December, we're gonna be releasing our Christmas special on Apollo.  We'll remind you again when it's out, but we really hope that you'll go and download Apollo, and find some new amazing fiction shows to get lost in.  And now finally, we want to re-introduce you to a show that we shared a few months ago: Earth Eclipsed. Earth Eclipsed is a brilliantly exciting and multi-award winning sci-fi series made by the same team that made the Apollo app - annoyingly multi-talented people. It's a wonderful show, and they have a bonus episode out today, for you to buy and listen to on Apollo. You can find the direct link to that bonus episode, along with all the other things I've mentioned, in the show notes of this episode.  Purchase the Earth Eclipsed Bonus Episode on Apollo So please do download the Apollo app, mark December 1st in your diary for the Mockery Manor Christmas special, and now we'd like to play you the trailer for the brand new bonus episode of Earth Eclipsed.

It's our pleasure to introduce Give Me Away, another fabulous series from the Fable & Folly Network. Give Me Away is a thrilling and thoughtful sci-fi drama, that imagines: what if there was such a thing as consensual body snatchers, aliens that cohabit in the minds of willing humans. What does sharing a body look like? They call the spaceship that crashed in the Nevada desert “The Ghosthouse” because it screams—the screams of thousands of extraterrestrial political prisoners uploaded into its horrific mainframe. The only way to free them... is to transfer them into the bodies of humans willing to share their minds with an alien second consciousness. But who would volunteer for that? Graham Shapiro, divorced and adrift at age 50, is one of the first to raise his hand. Give Me Away is written by Mac Rogers, the creator of smash hit shows Steal The Stars, LifeAfter and The Message, which between them have been downloaded 10 million, so there's some series audio drama pedigree here. And that really shows in Give Me Away. As you'll hopefully have come to expect with all the podcasts that we share with you, Give Me Away is deftly written, with stunning sound design to put you right in the action, and a wonderful cast of actors. And now it's our pleasure to share with you, Episode 1: Is That Thing Screaming Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Subscribe to Midnight Burger here! Today it’s our great pleasure to introduce a gorgeous fiction podcast that’s taking the indie audio drama world by storm - Midnight Burger.  When Gloria took a waitressing job in a diner outside of Phoenix, she didn't realize she was now an employee of Midnight Burger, a time-traveling, dimension-spanning diner. Every day Midnight Burger appears somewhere new in the cosmos along with its staff: a galactic drifter, a rogue theoretical physicist, a sentient old-timey radio, and some guy named Caspar. No one knows who built Midnight Burger or how it works, but when it appears, there's always someone around who could really use a cup of coffee. We love Midnight Burger. It’s one of the warmest, most thoughtful and sharply written fiction pods around, and it calls to mind all the best parts of the Hitchhiker’s Guide and Red Dwarf while still being very much it’s own thing. It’s no surprise it’s become an instant hit, having recently passed a million downloads. We urge you to check out Midnight Burger wherever you get podcasts, or at weopenatsix.com  And now, here’s S1 E1 of Midnight Burger, entitled The Transdimensional Haboob!
