Big Finish are pleased to reveal further details about the forthcoming Dark Shadows audio dramas - all set after the climatic events of Bloodlust. The following news story contains spoilers if you haven't heard the last episode of Bloodlust...
Following the announced release of Panic and The Curse of Shurafa, in May and June, comes In The Twinkling Of An Eye by new writer, Penelope Faith. The story stars Marie Wallace as Jessica Griffin, the landlady of the Blue Whale in Collinsport. Jessica has recovered from her recent attack and is now back behind the bar and back to her usual gossipy self. However, when a mysterious stranger (played by Ryan Wichert) arrives in town, could a secret from her past be revealed? The story also sees the return of Alexandra Donnachie as local teen Jacqueline Tate.
August’s release is Deliver Us From Evil by Aaron Lamont – writer of the popular The Haunted Refrain and Beyond The Grave – and sees the return to Dark Shadows of Christopher Pennock as Cyrus Longworth and Lisa Richards as Sabrina Jennings. Amy Cunningham (Stephanie Ellyne) meets up with her estranged sister-in-law, Sabrina, who tells her of what happened ten years before when she was reunited with Cyrus and the two were confronted by serial killers Alfie Chapman (Simon Kent) and Danielle Rogét (Brigid Lohrey). Cyrus and Sabrina previously appeared in the drama The Enemy Within and Alfie and Danielle previously appeared in Beneath The Veil.
“I’m very proud of these two releases,” says co-producer Joseph Lidster, “because they couldn’t be more different from each other. In The Twinkling Of An Eye is a very poetic, beautiful character study whereas Deliver Us From Evil is a dark, twisted tale of what happens when a man with the son of the Devil in his head and his ex-werewolf ex-girlfriend meet a young British serial killer and his possessed-by-an-18th-century-serial-killer-girlfriend. At Christmas.”
The cover for October’s release ...And Red All Over – featuring the return of Mitchell Ryan as Burke Devlin – is also now released.
Dark Shadows (1966 - 1971) was a US TV series which told the story of the cursed Collins family. Set in the town of Collinsport, it featured witches, vampires, werewolves and warlocks plotting and scheming against each other. It was recently remade as a film starring Johnny Depp. The most recent Big Finish release was the epic 13-part serial Dark Shadows - Bloodlust, while for those curious about the Dark Shadows audiobooks range, a large number of Bundles collect some of the stories together by characters or theme or location.
