Welcome to Serafina’s…

…Edinburgh’s unique psychic investigation agency. Discretion guaranteed.

Using technical as well as psychic techniques, we investigate and resolve all paranormal issues, including unexplained noises and ghostly sightings. We can contact your departed loved ones, encourage troubled spirits to move on, give select psychic readings and provide séances in private or social environments.

We can also help with “normal” problems by paranormal means, such as tracing missing persons or valuable objects,

The team at Serafina’s is led by Serafina (Sera) MacBride, an experienced psychic and medium who, although young, has talked to spirits all her life.

Ably supporting Sera are research assistants Jillian Kerr, IT specialist; and history graduate Jack Urquhart.

On contacting Serafina’s, whatever your problem you will instantly be put at your ease by our sympathetic and discreet receptionist, Mrs. Elspeth Duncan .

When required, the team can also draw on the services of security consultant, Thomas Allen, and white witch Melanie Morrow.

Together, we make up Serafina’s, here to help with all your psychic needs.

Elspeth, can you please type this up to be made into flyers? Trying to bring in some more punters… [Shuts Elspeth’s vodka firmly in the desk drawer].

It’s not saying anything untrue, is it? So my IT specialist’s also my best friend and a computer hacker. And my security consultant is an out-of-work actor and pub bouncer. BUT, I really can talk to spirits – some of them, anyway – and trace people or certain objects by touch. There’s no need to mention the thousand pound séances with special effects courtesy of Jilly and Jack. Or the evil spirits I supposedly cleaned out of that big house last year for a stonking great fat fee – there may never have been any troublesome spirits to start with, but hey, all that cleansing and exorcising made the daft bats feel safer, didn’t it? Certainly did megood to have such a huge cheque in the bank.

Yes, I know the fake stuff’s generally much more expensive, but look at all the extra work involved! Take this new case, for example. Retired finance whizz Ferdinand Bell just hired me to catch someone he says is stalking his family. Only being the great Bell, it’s not your common or garden stalker, is it? Oh no, his has to be a vampirestalker. Apparently. How gullible does he think I am? Everyone knows there’s no such thing as vampires!

Anyway, I always take the piss better. Jilly and I are heading up there now to festoon his massive house with garlic and big ugly wooden crosses just in time for his posh party tonight. Oh and we’ve got this hilarious little scene set up with Tam playing a vampire who’s going to bite Jack before I rush in and “stake” him and he disappears into smoke!

The beauty of all this is, Bell can’t tell us to naff off without admitting he made up the vampire nonsense in the first place, so whatever happens we get one over on him andget paid. Fab. Did I mention that I love my job?

Wait, Elspeth, what are you typing??? Don’t put that stuff in the flyer! Stop after “psychic needs” …Which sounds pretty sexy, don’t you think? J.
