The first of Big Finish's six HG Wells adaptations is out today as The Invisible Man is unleashed...
As announced on New Year's Day, Big Finish are releasing six full-cast adaptations in 2017 drawn from the extensive works of the father of British Sci-Fi, HG Wells. The first - The Invisible Man - stars the much-missed John Hurt, Blake Ritson and Annette Badland, is adapted by Jonathan Barnes, directed by Ken Bentley, and is out today:
In the midst of a snowstorm, a stranger arrives in an English country inn, seeking solitude. Soon, inexplicable goings-on at the Coach and Horses bring fear to the village.
Two very different men – the scholarly Dr Kemp and gentleman-of-the-road Thomas Marvel – are drawn into terrible events beyond their understanding.
A man named Griffin has defied the laws of nature, and is about to embark on a reign of terror. For he is... The Invisible Man.
The Invisible Man is available from today on Download and CD for £12.99 and £14.99 respectively, or can be bought with the other five releases (The First Men in the Moon, The Shape of Things to Come, The Island of Dr Moreau, The Time Machine and our November release) in either Download or CD HG Wells Bundles for £66 or £78 depending on format.
Exclusive to Big Finish, not only will a CD purchase unlock access to a digital version, but this can then be downloaded and listened to through the free Big Finish app for Android or iOS devices, or via your computer.
The next HG Wells release is next month's The First Men in the Moon starring Nigel Planer and Gethin Anthony:
