A huge, huge thanks to customers old and new for their unprecedented support, particularly of Doctor Who: The Light at the End. We've been utterly taken by surprise by the success of this 50th anniversary release. However, such success comes at a price and due to the sheer number of orders received recently, things aren't going out as speedily as usual at the moment. Apologies for the additional wait time some customers are experiencing. Our Sales team is getting orders out as fast as possible, and has got some additional help on hand, but please bear with us as we get caught up. Huge thanks for your patience. You can find more detailed information in the rest of this news story.
In 1973, a television show became a phenomenon. Beyond the Grave, a series investigating supernatural cases across the country, was returning for a new series – starting with a very special Halloween episode. Nothing would ever be the same again.

Beyond the Grave, due out in October, tells the story of what happens when a television crew unearth something terrible in Collinsport’s local cemetery. As with 2012's The Haunted Refrain, also written by playwright Aaron Lamont, it's another terrifying story to be listened to in the dark.
