For The Love Of StoriesBig Finish produce fantastic full-cast audio dramas for CD and download.
The crime-solving duo embark on a new series of murder mysteries in the long-awaited second Shilling & Sixpence Investigate box set from Big Finish Originals.
Award-winning actors Celia Imrie and David Warner return to play Lavinia Sixpence and Desmund Shilling in six new full-cast audio dramas, due for release in November 2022. The dramatic cliffhanger from series one will finally be resolved and more dark secrets revealed as the unlikely investigative pair uncover horrible truths in the Cornish village of Morlington.
Shilling & Sixpence Investigate Series 2: Cease To Be is now available to pre-order as a digital download for just £16.99, exclusively here.
The brand-new stories in this ‘whodunnit’ box set, all written by Nigel Fairs, are as follows:
The Walls Have Eyes
Rags And Tatters
The Severed Hand
The Coward’s Kiss
Cease To Be
Alone In The Dark
Producer and writer Nigel Fairs said: “After exactly 25 years of writing, producing and performing in The Morlington Mysteries, I left the fictional Cornish villages. It’s been a real pleasure to return to that world.
“Having two such amazing leads really brings everyone’s game up, as does having the sublime Samuel Clemens as director. As the cast are all so ridiculously talented anyway, the whole thing will, I think, be a sumptuous feast for the ears!”
Director Samuel Clemens added: “Being asked back to direct a follow up to the first season is firstly, an honour and secondly, a delight. The first season was my directorial debut for Big Finish, so this series holds a very special place in my heart. Last season ended on such a cliffhanger that I am so glad we can release that long-overdue suspense and build more exciting, twisting and turning storylines.
“Directing David and Celia again was incredible as they have such chemistry and artistry at their fingertips. It’s a marvel to watch and listen to. You are working with two of our nation's greats, who come with so much experience and class.
“This series has a perfect combination of darkness and humour. Nigel is a master at making you laugh one moment and bringing you to tears the next. I cannot wait to share season two with you all soon.”
Praise for Shilling & Sixpence Investigate:
“The stories are polished, extremely accomplished and all very entertaining.”
“It will be hard to understand if this set gets anything other than positive praise.”
“Nigel Fairs managed to find angles on cozy mystery tropes that were refreshingly different, while not straying too far from aspects of the genre that bring audiences back for more.”
