Designing Worlds Special - Murder in the Muirsheen Durkin

Have you seen Designing Worlds’ special, Murder in the Muirsheen Durkin – in colour OR black and white?

The latest episode of Designing Worlds, as we become involved in solving a Murder in the Muirsheen Durkin (a special episode set in New Babbage) is now on the web!

And, usually, it’s available in two formats – colour and monochrome.
