Ssssh! Quiet! You'll Raise the Dead!

In a story that reads like the cheap knock off of a Hammer Horror film (maybe it is?), authorities are seeking a town Doctor after allegations of grave robbing and reanimation.

Family GP, Doctor Hugo McFrank-Estyne who was local doctor at his surgery on the windswept crag jutting out at the end of Okus Road, Old Town didn't show up for work this morning and hasn't been seen since.

'' This coincides with a spate of bodysnatching from churchyards all over the town. Two shift workers walking past St Mark's church in the Railway Village saw a hooded figure heaving something over the railway line at about 5.30 this morning. If anyone sees the Doctor or any hunched assistants, please do not approach them as you may ruin the dramatic ending of this story.'' That comment from PC Mary Morgan, of the creepy but more interesting than traffic duty department at Wiltshire Constabulary.

Rumours that lightning rods have been placed on the roof of the Doctor's surgery and a huge thunderstorm is brewing above the Okus Road area haven't been confirmed, though Southern Electric did say they had experienced a number of complaints of brownouts while at the same time cackling laughter could be heard and the manic shouting of 'IT'S ALIVE, IT'S ALIVE!!!!' echoed around Old Town.

One resident who refused to be named (though we can tell you he lives at number 536 Okus Road and his name is Vincent Price) said the screaming was enough to ''raise the dead''.

He may be right!
