1.1 Up in the Air by Gemma Page
It’s March 1944 and young widow Daphne Coyne arrives at the Air Transport Auxiliary, having signed up to train as a new pilot. Already unsure of her decision, she is shocked to find that her estranged younger sister, Rebecca, has also joined the ATA, hoping for a chance of reconciliation.
As Daphne grows close to her flying instructor, the injured former RAF pilot, David, and discovers an unexpected passion for flying, the two sisters try to navigate their broken relationship. But David has family trapped in Belgium and Daphne has a plan that could jeopardise all of their futures…
A special congratulation to Eve Myles, who also won an award last night in the best actress category, for her role in the audio drama 19 Weeks. We’re very grateful for the opportunity to work with Eve, especially in our other Big Finish Original, Blind Terror.
Alex Kingston (Doctor Who, ER, A Discovery of Witches) and Warren Brown (Luther, Strike Back, X Company) star in Transference. Alex Kingston takes on the title role of Sam, a psychotherapist struggling with a recent bereavement. But her life will change forever when she meets a new client, Keith, played by Warren Brown.
Sam Ross (Alex Kingston) is a psychotherapist – she spends her days helping people, but she can barely help herself. She’s still grieving over the recent death of her sister, her mother Barbara offers little support and she’s professionally challenged. One of her clients is Keith (Warren Brown), a man whose life story changes with every session. And Keith has a secret – one that will rock Sam’s world to the core, and place her in the most terrible danger.
Transference, is an eight-hour special release, twice the length of our other Big Finish Originals. It will be released in August 2019 on download from Big Finish at a pre-order price of £34 until its general release at the end of September 2019, where it will rise to £40.
