Dear listener, here are eight episodes from our much appreciated comedy called The Queens of Dawson City.


It is a story of sex, greed, extortion, sex, deceit, revenge and...sex.


Set at the turn of the twentieth century, Lord Toffington is under the misguided notion that his grand vision for an eighth wonder of the world, is being constructed on the bleak and blighted moors of Yorkshire by the Engineer and entrepreneur Mr Enoch Honker.


Lady Tamara Toffington, daughter of Lord Toffington, has fled Toffington Hall to escape an unhappy marriage and found refuge in a whore-house in Dawson City. Mr Honker must keep Tamara's whereabouts a secret from all who persue her, including her finance Sebastian Fontain Bentpipe - the marquis of Calderdale.
