About This Show

Come along and hear the story of Richard ‘Doctor Dick’ Pascoe, a quack medical man once famous across Cornwall for his willingness to break the law and take on the establishment. Was he an angel or a devil? Victorian Cornwall was torn in half by that question, and we’ll be asking it again as we make our way into some of the darker corners of this county’s past. Will Hazell is a local storyteller and tour guide experienced at bringing narratives to life, and anyone with an interest in Cornwall’s past will want to hear him tell this richly dramatic story.
