Surely not THE Barry Bull-Buggerer Ferry, the scourge of Smithfield ?!
That Barry's life of villainy came to a sudden end when he was caught behind the scenes of Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show. His dying words were "Nobody told me Buffalo Bill was a chap...with guns."

Mmmm... I think we've got enough vaguely Eastern European names to form a criminal gang.

They'll start off working well together but their combined sociopathy will make them turn against each other with grander and more elaborate murders. :axem:

I think I got mine round the wrong way! Should be 'Woodbridge Royston', which doesn't sound as believable as 'Royston Woodbridge'.
Actually I think Woodbridge Royston sounds just the part. If not a Victorian villain, perhaps a Victorian explorer and big game hunter.

I can't think of a victorian villain name. Somehow, Norfolk Broads Peterborough doesn't sound like a name from any era. However, I'll offer a theme song for the thread.

The Cog is Dead's parody of a song by some bint I've never heard of's song, 'Bad Guy':

Yes, it's not somewhere I'd go for a holiday. Although... it does have the Royston Cave to look at.
Indeed - and if you stand on the pavement outside Betfred you'll see the Cave's pebble glass skylight.
The hours just fly by.
