"Blood and Fire is arguably the purest distillation of Dark Shadows since the show went off the air on 2 April, 1971 ... the result is sublime, tragic and triumphant." 10/10 Sci-Fi Bulletin
Featuring cast from the original television series, Blood and Fire is a special audio drama to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Dark Shadows.
“Some are born with magic, some acquire magic, and others have magic thrust upon them...”
The year is 1767. Young widow Laura Murdoch Stockbridge is to marry Joshua Collins, heir to the Collins fortune. Meanwhile, Joshua’s sister Abigail is in love with disreputable sailor Abraham Harkaway.

To destroy the Collins family forever.
