On the second day of Big Finishmas, Big Finish gave to me… two adventures starring Dorian Gray. Available on download at just £2.99 are two Yuletide stories perfect for those who enjoy a traditional horror story at Christmas time.
Desperately Seeking Santa by Tim Leng
December, 2015. When an intruder breaks into his home in the dead of night, Dorian Gray is more than a little surprised to discover that Santa Claus himself is trying to kill him. Can he track down Father Christmas before the big day – or is the slay ride only just beginning?
All Through the House by Alan Flanagan
Christmas Eve, 2015. When Dorian and Toby check into a mysterious hotel, nothing is quite as it seems. Ghosts of the past are trapped in the present, threatening their future – and nothing can ever be the same again...
Please Note: The Confessions of Dorian Gray contains adult material and is not suitable for younger listeners.
The Spirits of Christmas has a simply stunning cast with some huge names and faces familiar to the halls of Big Finish including Sophie Aldred, Tom Allen, Samantha Béart, David Blackwell, Lisa Bowerman, Jacqueline King, Bruno Langley, Katy Manning, Miles Richardson, Laura Riseborough, Hugh Skinner, David Warner, Gabriel Woolf… and Alexander Vlahos, of course!
Producer Scott Handcock told us all about this festive set back in the December 2015 edition of Vortex: “There’s something peculiarly gothic and claustrophobic about Christmas. I’m not entirely certain why that is, but the festive season somehow lends itself to the macabre. Maybe it’s the fact that the nights draw in, the air grows cold and the world seems so much less inviting? What else could survive out there but ghouls and phantoms?! In that sense, it’s a perfect fit for Dorian – he’s lived through over a century’s worth of Christmases after all. This is just our glimpse at a single one of them!”
