Frankenstein Now Available for Pre-Order

11 February 2014

Big Finish is thrilled to announce full details of a brand new full-cast dramatisation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, starring Doctor Who’s Arthur Darvill as Victor Frankenstein, with monster maestro Nicholas Briggs as his infamous Creature.

Adapted for audio by writer Jonathan Barnes (The Somnambulist, The Ordeals of Sherlock Holmes), and directed by Scott Handcock (The Confessions of Dorian Gray), this chilling tale also features the vocal talents of other familiar voices from the Doctor Who universe, including Geoffrey Beevers (The Master) as Victor’s father, Alphonse; Georgia Moffett (The Doctor’s Daughter, Jenny) as Victor’s betrothed, Elizabeth; and Terry Molloy (Davros) as hardbitten sailor, Christensen. Alex Jordan, Geoffrey Breton, Lizzie Hopley, Stephen Fewell and Sarah Ovens also star.

‘This is a project that Arthur and I have been discussing for some time,’ explains producer and director Scott Handcock, ‘and it’s been an absolute joy to finally bring it to life. Jonathan’s adaptation is confident and full-blooded, and every single one of our cast members raised their game to match the material. It’s a fresh and faithful adaptation of a classic story, and it promises to be a gripping listen!’

Frankenstein will be released in September as two special-edition formats, both comprising three discs of the drama itself, plus two bonus discs featuring behind-the-scenes material, and an accompanying soundtrack from composer James Dunlop.

The standard five-disc Special Edition is available to pre-order now for £25.00 (£20.00 for download), alongside a special Limited Signed Edition featuring two exclusive art cards autographed by Arthur Darvill (Victor Frankenstein) and Nicholas Briggs (The Creature). This edition can also be pre-ordered now for £35.00.

Please note that the signed edition will be limited to 1000 copies only, and prices will rise upon release. Both versions will be available from September.
