It was two hundred years ago…you probably know the story. Dr Frankenstein created a monster. Then he created another monster, a female monster because the first monster was a bit lonely. But where are they now? I’ve got no idea about the first monster; he’s probably doing a solo show in Vegas. But the female monster – her name is Brenda – she has moved to the seaside town of Whitby in North Yorkshire and opened a B & B in search of a normal life. Little did she know she would have to contend with tall, dark and toothy characters from her past, TV shows investigating paranormal activity, deadly boutiques offering “miracle make-overs” and the estranged wife of Santa Claus himself who will stop at nothing to keep her looks!

With copious pots of spiced tea, fish and chips, bingo and a sprinkling of devil worship maybe Whitby isn’t the sleepy town she once thought…
