WHO'S AFRAID OF BEOWULF?
Well, not Hrolf Earthstar for a start. The last Norse king of Caithness. Hrolf and his twelve champions are woken from a centuries-long sleep when Hildy Frederiksen, girl archeologist, finds their grave mound. Not only that, Hrolf decides to carry on his ancient war against the Sorcerer-King.
In a mixture of P.G. Woodhouse, Norse mythology and Laurel and Hardy, Hildy and her Viking companions face such perils as BBC film crews, second rate fish and chips and the Bakerloo Line in their battle against the powers of darkness.
