Bonus Episode: A Murder Mystery
02:20:23

For those unaware, Dani and Bill have played through a few murder mysteries over on our patreon. In these episodes, Dani takes a public domain murder mystery story and Bill plays through it in the role of the detective.

In this episode, Dani has created a completely original murder mystery, and Bill tries his hand at solving it. It's a sort of proof-of-concept episode for what could be a new weekly, freely available show from Escape This Podcast. This episode is quite long, and would likely be edited into 4 weekly release episodes were it its own thing.

Groundskeeper Willie? No, I'm his cousin, Gravedigger Billy.

With the revelation of last chapter, Bill the historian is eager to find out the last secrets these "ghosts" are hiding. With renewed zeal and two new Cullodens, it's time to enter the manor and get to the bottom of this.

Our Cullodens enter the manor, only to quickly exit again and find themselves in the garden outside. With a gravelly ghost, some hated apples, and some rather dangerous plant life, these puzzle solvers will have their hands full.

You've read mystery novels. You understand the intricacies of old manor houses. If there's one universal truth, it's that the butler did it! So our new Cullodens follow that logic all the way to the chambers of the chamberlain. How will they fare as they deal with puzzles, campanology, botany, and an old washing machine.

If only our detectives had more time, if only they could slow things down, and get some breathing room...
