The London Dungeon has sold off some unwanted props as they are moving to larger premises.
Among the macabre items are surgical and torture implements, various severed limbs and heads, skeletons and the Devil’s Chair, how on Earth anyone knows what the Dark Lord sits on is anyone’s guess.
We humans have a fascination for the gruesome; we love a scary film, so long as we don’t have to go to bed alone, and criminals such as Jack the Ripper have woven their ‘magic’ into our psyche.
In reality Jack the Ripper was a homicidal maniac, albeit bright enough to escape capture. The items purchased at the sale were probably bought for a bit of fun.
I personally can’t see a use for a blood soaked skeleton with its arms missing and I wouldn’t like it to be the last thing I see before I go to sleep at night, if I want to be scared I look at the missus!
Most of us never encounter anything more disturbing than what we see on the telly however a visit from HMRC’s bailiffs can worry some directors.
It’s the thought that all your hard work will effectively be snuffed out because you cannot pay your outstanding VAT, PAYE or Corporation Tax liabilities.
