GOING UNDERGROUND A Series of four related tales about a secret community living in the many tunnels underneath London.
The first two of these stories, The Secret in the Tunnels and The Never Ending War (originally written for Halloween), reveal a hidden and somewhat sinister society living secretly in London’s disused underground tunnels. A legacy of the blitz during the Second World War, the enclosed and isolated community continues to be mysteriously fed by supplies and propaganda from the surface. The fate of this troglodyte colony hangs in the balance when they are accidentally discovered by a weary camera crew making a documentary about ghosts in the old tunnels. A battle for survival and opposing wills ensues.
The third and fourth stories, Shadows of Things That Have Been and Shadows Foretold introduces new characters who are also tied into the earlier events surrounding the blitz and the creation of an alternative subterranean society. A mother is visited by echoes from the past and is forced to reflect on the events that have helped determine the nature of the relationship she has with her daughter. These stories were also included as part of the 2015 Advent Calendar broadcasts by Cambridge 105 in the lead up to Christmas.
