Designing Worlds Special - Murder in the Muirsheen Durkin

Designing Worlds Special – Murder in the Muirsheen Durkin

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.

DW357 – Murder at the Muirsheen Durkin from Richard Elen on Vimeo.

We showed both to our initial audience back at the beginning of the year – and they were generally in favour of the special black and white edition … but there were some people who voted for the rich colour.

What do you think? Take a look – and share your views below the line!

THE PLOT

The Muisheen Durkin is, of course, the restuarant/bar in Brunel Hall, the large hotel thatis part of the business empire of Mr Victor Mornington, the Assistant Maceholder of New Babbage. So when his temporary Christmas barman, Mr Biggins, discovers a murder victim … then they are duty bound to hand over the prime suspect to Miss Bookworm Heinrichs, the head of the Militia.

But has Mr Mornington’s pet rabbit Thumper turned vorpal? Or is there another explanation? Can Miss Widdershins and Mr Merlin help to solve the mystery, or will they just complicate things further? Fortunately, there’s a formidable forensics expert they can turn to …

The latest episode of Designing Worlds – our Christmas Special in New Babbage– is now on the web!

This year’s Christmas show takes a slightly different format. Well-known Babbage personalities – and Mr Merlin and Miss Widdershins, of course! – will be telling two Christmas stories about the Babbage urchins at Christmas time. One is How the Urchins Stole Christmas, and the second is a sequel to what is probably the best loved New Babbage show, The Miracle of the Bells – which of course, contains the dreaded Book That Must Not Be Named.

And of course, there’s Mr Biggins (as you’ve never seen him before)!

Then there’s a very special Christmas song (composed by MacKnight Culdesac) to finish the show – all about the Steam Santa’s somewhat dour companion, the Boiler Elf.

This year’s Christmas show takes a slightly different format. Well-known Babbage personalities – and Mr Merlin and Miss Widdershins, of course! – will be telling two Christmas stories about the Babbage urchins at Christmas time. You could say that one is How the Urchins Stole Christmas, and the second is a sequel to what is probably the best loved New Babbage show, The Miracle of the Bells – which of course, contains the dreaded Book That Must Not Be Named.

And then there’s a very special Christmas song (composed by MacKnight Culdesac) to finish the show – all about the Steam Santa’s somewhat dour companion, the Boiler Elf.

The latest episode of Designing Worlds –the last show of the season and a retrospective of some of our favourite episodes over the last few seasons – is now on the web.

We recorded this show at the beautiful Designing Worlds cafe at the Second Life 13th Birthday Celebrations (created for us by Eliza Wierwight), and our team of Aisling Sinclair, Wildstar Beaumont and, of course, Saffia and Elrik, chose some of their personal highlights.

And we have a special slideshow of images from a very special event, chosen by Wildstar Beaumont, and never shown before!
