Nancy Drew – The Secret of the Old Clock Part 2: Nancy Comes Out of the Closet
In our episode:
Guest host Maxwell from Relic: The Lost Treasure Podcast recaps the second third of Carolyn Keene’s Nancy Drew: The Secret of the Old Clock, where mercury is in retrograde, gossip is the law of the land, and Nancy surprises some schemey bitches.
Nancy Drew’s keen mind is tested when she searches for Mr. Crowley’s missing will.
Some relevant characters:
Nancy Drew – 16 or 18, depending on the version you read. Blonde, blue-eyed, detective with a razor sharp intuition.
The Turner Sisters (Mary and Edna) – Aunties. Guardians of Judy. Former friends of Crowley.
Judy – 5 years old. Orphaned after her parents die in a tragic boat explosion.
The Hoover sisters – Allison has operatic talent. Grace bakes cakes and brews tea.
The Tophams (Richard, his Mrs., Ada, and Isabel) – Inherited Josiah Crowley’s estate. Totally rude; “bougie af” per Daniel’s take. Daughters Ada and Isabel are the Heathers.
Josiah Crowley – Deceased. Formerly filthy rich. Seems to have promised a lot of people a lot of money.
Carson Drew – Nancy’s handsome father. Well-known lawyer in River Heights.
Hannah Gruen – The Drew’s housekeeper and surrogate mother to Nancy.
Signor Mascagni – Retired professional voice instructor, now gives lessons to the gifted few of River Heights.
Abby Rowan – Cousin of Crowley’s wife. Life Alert posterchild.
William and Fred Mathews – Farmer-daddies. More deserving poor.
Jeff Tucker – Topham cottage Caretaker. Helps Nancy come out of the closet. Australian?
