Season's greetings! And welcome to 'A Midwinter Night's Dream', a Mockery Christmas Special! This one-off drama occurs between seasons 2 and 3, in the winter of 1994.  We made A Midwinter Night's Dream back in 2022, and released it that Christmas for our Ko-Fi patrons, and as a one-off purchase for anyone else. This year we're excited to make it available for you all to enjoy for free.  We're following the same release format for the Christmas special we're making this year. The Matty Tapes will be out in the first week of December 2023, and like last year, our patrons will be able to access it for free, and for everyone else, we're asking for a donation of £3.99. Next year, we'll release The Matty Tapes for free, for everyone!  Why are we doing it this way? Well, in a nutshell, the proceeds from the sale of the Xmas Special helps us to keep making audio dramas! And we have a lot we want to do in 2024, including Magenta and Bernard's Paranormal Investigations and season four of Mockery Manor. In the meantime, sit back with a mug of spiced wine, warm your nutmegs by the fire, and enjoy A Midwinter Night's Dream. Read the transcript Support us on Ko-fi <3 Learn more about your ad choices.

This show is a joy to listen to. Which is an odd thing to say about a murder mystery, I know! Exquisitely produced. Incredibly well-acted. And just the right amount of absurdity.

Fun story, easy one to binge. Spooky, macabre storyline but it's told with humour so it isn't actually scary. Voice actors and sound effects add colour and life to the script. Well done to all involved!
