Description

The London Necropolis Railway is a brand new, full cast audio drama podcast premiering fall 2018. The story takes place in London’s underground system where an organisation called The London Necropolis Railway moves the souls of the dead out of London to avoid the city getting overrun with hauntings. Barney works at the LNR, he’s one of the ghouls whose job it is to ensure that the souls end up on the trains that take them to the hereafter. He is bored with his job and tired of his endless existens when one day a soul refuses get on the train. The soul, a private investigator named Agnes, convinces Barney to help her catch the demon she was hunting when she died. Together they have to confront his boss, the demon that wants them dead, and even death itself. The show is is inspired by the real London Necropolis Railway which was active from the middle of the 1800s to the middle of the 1900s. It was a train line that moved dead bodies out of London to a cemetery 40 minutes outside of the city. The BBC has called it ‘the spookiest, strangest train line in British history.’ The podcast is part of denandrasidan.se - a project based in Sweden that uses fiction to tackle difficult themes such as death, suicide, and existential questions in a way that makes them approachable for young people.The goal is to create platforms online that can both encourage young people to share their thoughts and emotions around the subject, and to show them that they are not alone in their experiences.
