Full-cast adaptations of Callan stories originally published in the Sunday Express.
Originally broadcast in 1967, Callan took the burgeoning world of spy drama, and brought a much darker tone to the genre. Having similar responsibilities to MI5, Callan used the most ruthless and lethal techniques to get the job done, each method meticulously filed by ‘The Section’, colour coding each lethal tactic.
Four series of the original television series were produced between 1967 and 1972, plus a cinema film released in 1974 and a TV comeback in 1981. And now, Callan is set to return on audio at Big Finish.
Adapted from series creator James Mitchell’s Sunday Express Short Stories by his son Peter Mitchell, four new adventures will expand the themes explored in the television show.
David Callan works for The Section, a top-secret counter-espionage organisation. He’s a killer, a trained assassin, and the best at what he does.
But that doesn’t mean he has to like it.
With the aid of the burglar Lonely; fellow operative Meres; and Section secretary Liz, Callan fulfils the orders of departmental head Hunter and finds himself in very murky waters. Murder, betrayal and model soldiers. It’s all in a day’s work for Callan.
More story details to follow.
