Big Finish Productions are pleased to announce the first cast members of their forthcoming miniseries Dark Shadows: Bloodlust
Fans of the Dark Shadows Dramatic Readings will be pleased to hear that Stephanie Ellyne will be returning as Amy. We last heard Amy in The Carriage of the Damned, at the end of which she swore never to return to Collinsport. So what's bringing her back to the town ten years later?
Perhaps the answer lies with her new family? A housewife and mother to baby Tommy, Amy is now married to journalist Andrew Cunningham and stepmother to troubled teen Harry.
Andrew is played by Matthew Waterhouse, familiar to many as Adric in Doctor Who. Harry is played by Scott Haran, best known as the boy wizard Tom Clarke in CBBC's Wizards Vs Aliens.
"One thing we wanted to do in Bloodlust was to create a next generation of Collinsport residents," says co-producer Joseph Lidster. "Harry's something of a loner but he'll soon find himself making friends with other teenagers in the town."
"Like many of the residents," says co-producer David Darlington, "the Cunningham family are hiding secrets - both from the other townsfolk and from each other. But could one of them be a killer?"
You can hear Amy, Andrew and Harry introducing themselves here.
Dark Shadows: Bloodlust is a 13-part miniseries released in January and February 2015. It's available at special pre-order prices on two collected CD sets, or as a subscription to the twice-weekly downloads here.
