Eve Myles told Vortex magazine about playing this new character, very different from her more usual role for Big Finish as Torchwood’s Gwen Cooper: “Kathryn is an intriguing character as she’s incredibly gentle, but she’s broken, and yet she’s still very assertive though lost and grief-stricken. It’s lovely to be working on something completely different, from Gwen being so strong, physical and in the midst of the action, to find the lovely Kathryn in a rather strange world that she’s very happy to be in.
“It’s a really complex story, and that’s what I like, it’s not black and white. It isn’t a horror. It isn’t a thriller. It isn’t sci-fi. It’s its own genre – it’s Blind Terror. It’s layered, it’s complex and it’s intelligent.”
Blind Terror: The Gods of Frost, comprising six half-hour episodes, is available now on download at £17 – just perfect for some Halloween listening!
