Case 20: Pirates

Case Twenty. Mat Ewins’ timbers are shivered as he learns how savant psychiatrist Dr Bertrand Wolf was taken hostage by pirates. How would being taken hostage by pirates effect your business? Usually recorded in front of a live audience this episode was taped down the line owing to a worldwide pandemic that has infected over 15.2 million people (officially). On behalf of everyone who works on Microscope we would like to officially apologise to Steve Wright. We were unaware that we were getting his emails and thus this series is still seeking a sponsor.
