The Spirit Trap (1.3)

Big Finish Jago and Litefoot Series

What a fun story! Though it’s a complete 180 from the previous story, The Bellova Devil. Professor George Litefoot believes in spirits and Henry Gordon Jago does not. Though in a way, Litefoot ends up being correct in his beliefs, which seems to be how these stories work. Jago and Litefoot wade into the strange and take “sides” in the issue and Litefoot ends up being the one more correct. But I have not listened to all of the stories, just series 1, 4, and 5 so far. I certainly plan to listen to more, though.

This story is aptly named as Mrs Vanguard is involved in trapping spirits so the bodies can be used by other spirits. I won’t ruin the real story behind the possessions but suffice it to say, there is some baaaad stuff coming in J&L’s future!
