THE TEAM behind local webcom Vultures have launched a very festive finale to the new series of the detective comedy.

Dan McGrain In The Nick Of Time has just been released online and will be followed by the final episode this week, The Dicks Who Came In From The Cold which went live on December 23.

This, the twelfth and final episode of the series, marks the end of five years work on the project since local production company Mycrofilms released the first episode The Kris Kringle Konundrum in December 2007. In that time Vultures has built up a huge fan base, has been regularly at the top of the iTunes comedy video podcast charts and this year the show became part of BeActive Media’s inaugural Digital Comedy Lab.

The plot of the new series sees the former detectives of Vulture Private Investigations struggling to deal with normal life after being shut down at the end of the first series. Dan McGrain In The Nick Of Time sees the former detectives being drawn back into action under pressure from their former student Janine Drew. In The Dicks Who Came In From The Cold, the wrath of mysterious local ‘security chief’ Johnny Curragh is about to be felt. Our apparent heroes must make the decision: are they detectives or are they really retired?

The new series has been created by John Morton, Alan Slattery and Peter McGann and features a recurring cast of characters played by a lot of familiar faces from Kilkenny’s theatre scene including David Thompson, Suzanne O’Brien, Seán Hackett, Ross Costigan, Amy Dunne, Ken McGuire, Gus McDonagh, Alexandra Christle and Stephen Colfer. The show has been shot entirely in Kilkenny with a local cast and crew since it began in 2007.
