The Omega Factor is a terrifying examination into the occult. Originally produced by BBC Scotland and aired on BBC One in 1979, The Omega Factor scared viewers and attracted criticism from famed moralist Mary Whitehouse for its sheer levels of terror, and as "one of the most disturbing programmes I have ever seen on television".
The original series starred Louise Jameson as Anne Reynolds and the late James Hazeldine as Tom Crane. Big Finish revived the show on audio in 2015, making three new series set in the modern day, with Louise Jameson reprising the role of Anne (now a doctor) and John Dorney playing Adam, the son of Tom.
It’s been 30 years since Tom Crane left the department, and Anne Reynolds now continues the work with Adam Crane, Tom Crane’s son. But not everything is right with Adam, and the Department’s past is coming back to haunt them…
Natasha Gerson, daughter of Omega Factor creator Jack Gerson, played Morag in the series and told us about how it felt for the series to hit this milestone: “The Omega Factor was one of my dad's favourite series and, thanks to Big Finish, it lives on! It's been an honour and a pleasure to work with David, John, Louise and everyone involved, and writing the novel was a pleasure. I hope the series continues. My dad and the lovely James Hazeldine would be so pleased. Happy 40th, Omega! Happy 91st, Dad!”
John Dorney, who plays Adam Dean, "The Omega Factor was a series ahead of its time that was cut off too soon. It was an absolute honour to be part of its long deserved continuation. The scripts were brilliant and I hope its legacy continues."
