Too many accents and speech that is not clear make this episode hard to follow. Good sound effects though.

Whenever I listen to an episode with accents in it, I know there will be cringeworthy moments. I wish there had been more actors in this troupe who could "do" accents well. It's not a bad story even though Elspeth Eric wrote it.

Although in the introduction, Mr. Marshall said that this episode was especially written for the mystery theater by Elspeth Eric, Elspeth Eric did not write this! Mr Marshall admitted his subterfuge at the end when he revealed that the episode actually was written over one hundred years ago by Charles Collins titled The Compensation House, and they altered the title, and removed the straight prose, but the plot remained the same. (I suppose after presenting a broadcast every day for 5 years the RMT occasionally runs out of original scripts and has to do this. Ms. Eric got rewarded with an easy paycheck.)
