Big Finish Productions is excited to announce details of Alexander Vlahos's return as Dorian in a special feature-length Halloween edition of The Confessions of Dorian Gray. The Prime of Deacon Brodie is written by novelist Roy Gill, and finds Dorian tracking down an old friend in 1920s Edinburgh on the 31st of October.
'After the success of last year's Christmas special, I knew I wanted a chance to tell another feature-length story,' explains producer Scott Handcock, 'and as soon as David Richardson suggested Halloween instead of Christmas, we couldn't resist! It felt so very Dorian!'
'Roy Gill is a new and exciting fantasy/horror writer, who has delivered a lovely story that has more twists and turns than the streets of Edinburgh itself! The extended running time (a generous seventy-five minutes) also lets us really explore the story and the characters - and Alex really rises to the challenge of bringing something very different to his performance.'
Joining Alexander Vlahos for The Confessions of Dorian Gray: The Prime of Deacon Brodie are Daniel Brocklebank (Shakespeare in Love, Emmerdale, Release) as James Anderson, Paul Clayton (Peep Show, Doctor Who: Planet of the Ood) as William Wright, with Rhys Jennings as Rory and Louise Faulkner as Flora MacIntosh.
The Confessions of Dorian Gray: The Prime of Deacon Brodie will be available via download in October, and can be pre-ordered now for £7.99. You can still catch up on series one and two on download, and our adaptation of Oscar Wilde's original novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray, on download and triple CD.
As revealed at Cardiff Comic Con, a special New Year's Eve story - written by Alexander Vlahos and Jolyon Westhorpe - is also currently in production and will be released towards the end of December.
