This title was released in September 2020. It will be exclusively available to buy from the Big Finish website until October 31st 2020, and on general sale after this date.

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.

Big Finish presents four more full-cast Callan adventures, adapted from series creator James Mitchell’s Sunday Express Short Stories by his son Peter Mitchell.

2.1 File on a Difficult Don

The cap and gown meet the gun and bullet when Callan visits the Dreaming Spires to protect a code-breaker.

2.2 File on a Mourning Mother

Callan and Meres are investigating the mysterious death of a scientist at a top secret research centre when they discover, Hell hath no fury…

2.3 File on an Elusive Engineer

Callan and Meres are sent to protect a British engineer from an assassination attempt and then find themselves all at sea…

2.4 File on an Angry American

The CIA plans to execute a double agent on British soil and Callan is sent to make sure the target’s wife doesn’t get caught in the cross-fire...

Recorded on: April and May 2020
Recorded at: recorded remotely

 

About Callan

Originally broadcast in 1967, Callan took the burgeoning world of spy drama, and brought a much darker tone to the genre. With James Bond’s career beginning in film in 1962, Michael Caine’s Harry Palmer beginning in 1965 (The Ipcress File) and hot on the heels of the surreal series The Prisoner in 1967, Callan took a darker approach to espionage. 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’ (the organisation behind operative Callan), 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 returns on audio at Big Finish.

Adapted from series creator James Mitchell’s Sunday Express Short Stories by his son Peter Mitchell, four new adventures expand the themes explored in the television show.

Reviews

It's not only up there with the very finest work that Big Finish have ever produced, but also up there with the very finest of Callan's original televisual adventures.
