Good news! The Witch Hunter Chronicles ends its short hiatus and this Sunday, Ludlov will return in episode XI: Ignis!
It seems The Witch Hunter Chronicles has been received with great enthusiasm.
On his blog, Cleireac has written a glowing review of the series, stating:
“The Witch Hunter Chronicles is dark fantasy, certainly, but we are presented with a complex character who knows his own mind and is determined to follow his purpose, no matter where it leads. And it leads to some very unwholesome places indeed. The drama is full of betrayal, madness, fear, corruption, persecution, and intolerance. Ludlov stands alone as perhaps a redeeming figure in this world.
The series is no “Princess Bride,” mind you. It is a serious, gritty fantasy drama that sets the bar very high.”
You can read the full review on Cleireac’s Live Journal.
Also, the popular audio drama podcast Radio Drama Revival is now featuring The Witch Hunter Chronicles. The show’s host, Fred Greenhalgh, loves the series and calls it “well produced, brilliantly scored and awesomely gothic”.

Meanwhile, some of you may be thinking “that’s all well and good, but when is the next part coming out”? We have good news. The music has been written for about half of what we call “the grand finale”. Yes, we’d like to end the series on a high note and that’s why the final two episodes of The Witch Hunter Chronicles will be especially long.
Very soon, listeners can expect Episode XI: Ignis, the last “normal” episode before the giant two-part big finish.
The Witch Hunter Chronicles is taking a short break from its weekly release schedule. The reason for this is our commitment to making the best possible audio drama. We have seen it commented on forums that many great productions come and go, dying out before they can reach their narrative climax. Rest assured, this is not the case for The Witch Hunter Chronicles. The entire story has been written and all the dialogue has been recorded. We could publish new episodes but we have decided against it to give our excellent composer, Peter Van Riet, the opportunity to perfect the music that the epic finale to our series requires.
I believe that at least half of what makes this series work is the incredible music that Peter has already created. We have been working on this story for a long, long time and we now wish to see it through to the end in the best possible quality.
Do not fear — we will bring the conclusion to the saga to you soon and we promise you:
It will be epic.
