We love StoriesBig Finish produce great full-cast audio drama for CD and download, featuring many popular television fantasy series.
Coming in February 2016, a brand new series of horror readings performed by Dan Starkey...
Creeping out after our announcement of Dracula, Big Finish is pleased to be able to confirm details of a brand new range of audiobook readings for 2016. Carnacki: The Ghost-Finder brings to life the cases of the supernatural detective, created by writer William Hope Hodgson in 1910.
‘The Carnacki stories are fantastic,’ says producer Scott Handcock, ‘and Hodgson’s writing is so wonderfully rich and evocative, it made sense for us to bring them to life in a series of equally fantastic readings. The first six tales especially are incredibly atmospheric - a cross between Conan Doyle and MR James - as Carnacki finds himself investigating supernatural happenings in the early twentieth century.’
The classic tales will be performed by Dan Starkey (Doctor Who’s Strax the Sontaran) as Thomas Carnacki with support from Joseph Kloska as his associate Dodgson. The range is directed and produced by Scott Handcock, whose previous work for Big Finish includes The Confessions of Dorian Gray and Frankenstein: The Modern Prometheus.
‘Strangely, I was working with Dan in Cardiff when I happened to mention I’d be tackling the Carnacki stories,’ continues Scott, ‘and he immediately started gushing about the character and the stories, so it was a delight when he agreed to bring Carnacki to life on audio. The language and writing is so rich, it’s great to let Dan’s performance take centre-stage, coupled with a lovely score from Ioan Morris and Rhys Downing.’
Carnacki: The Ghost-Finder collects together six of William Hope Hodgson’s original stories:
The Gateway of the Monster
The House Among the Laurels
The Whistling Room
The Horse of the Invisible
The Searcher of the End House
The Thing Invisible
All six stories will be included as part of a single volume which can be pre-ordered today for £18 on download ahead of its release in February 2016. (Please note that this release is download-only).
