Just in time for the holiday season, the immortal hedonist returns for a yuletide showdown...
Inspired by Oscar Wilde's classic story of hedonism and corruption, The Confessions of Dorian Gray imagines a world where Dorian Gray (Alexander Vlahos) was real, and his friendship with Oscar Wilde once spawned the notorious novel.
Available later this month from Big Finish Productions, The Confessions of Dorian Gray: The Spirits of Christmas presents two wintery tales – where Dorian will face an assassination attempt by Father Christmas (David Warner) and confront the ghosts of the past alongside his lover Toby (Hugh Skinner). Listen to the trailer below:
Desperately Seeking Santa by Tim Leng
December, 2015. When an intruder breaks into his home in the dead of night, Dorian Gray is more than a little surprised to discover that Santa Claus himself is trying to kill him. Can he track down Father Christmas before the big day - or is the slay ride only just beginning?
All Through the House by Alan Flanagan
Christmas Eve, 2015. When Dorian and Toby check into a mysterious hotel, nothing is quite as it seems. Ghosts of the past are trapped in the present, threatening their future - and nothing can ever be the same again...
