Synopsis

'Yet again, Big Finish has produced a powerful piece of audio drama any fan of the show or connoisseur of quality should listen to.' Kasterborous

‘Louise Jameson and John Dorney don’t put a foot wrong – world weary, panic stricken, desperate, intelligent, compassionate and that is just Louise in her first scene – this really put the actors through their paces, the material demands nothing less than a real human performance and we get it in spades from all the actors.’ Ed WatkinsonPlanet Mondas 

‘Director Ken Bentley allows the tension to build, and Martin Montague’s sound design is excellent at providing an audio equivalent to the hallucinatory visuals of the TV series.’ Paul SimpsonSci-Fi Bulletin 

‘I think Louise Jameson and John Dorney make a razor-sharp foil for each other and the well-written characters really jump out at the listener... just don't listen in the dark!’ Sue DaviesSFcrowsnest

'As expected from Big Finish this is extremely well produced and directed, and there are some serious scares delivered within this new series. Take for example when Adam enters the hospital room as we’re introduced to him in the beginning – I was in my home, on my own, with the earphones in and felt the need to remove one so I could keep a listen out behind me at the same time.' Rod BellFlickering Myth

 

Over thirty years have passed since Tom Crane left Department 7, a top secret organisation that investigates the paranormal.

Anne Reynolds now runs the operation, and for three decades their enigmatic nemesis Omega has been silent.

But that peace is about to be shattered. When Crane’s son Adam is drawn into Department 7, the past quickly catches up with Anne and her team…

The first series comprises these four episodes:

1: From Beyond by Matt Fitton

Dr Anne Reynolds finds her life's work under threat as Department 7 faces review. Is there really any place for paranormal investigation in government? Help arrives from an unlikely source, as a young man comes to Edinburgh looking for answers. Adam Dean holds a connection to Anne's past, which will open the doors of perception and take them down a new and disturbing path...
 

2: The Old Gods by Phil Mulryne

Looking into Tom Crane's legacy, Anne and Adam investigate a remote community, isolated from the distractions of the twenty-first century. As Anne fights to justify Department 7's existence, Adam begins to learn how dangerous his new life can be. For when the world is stripped of the trappings of today, only the old gods are left to rule it...

3: Legion by Cavan Scott

Exorcism is alive and well and making a healthy profit in modern Scotland. As one practitioner's unsavoury methods are called to account, a terrible force threatens to be unleashed.
 
While Anne follows the trail left by Tom Crane, Adam hears a voice from his father's past calling for help - but what will it cost him if he chooses to answer?
 
4: The Hollow Earth by Ken Bentley

A church is meant to be a place of sanctuary. Of peace. Of protection. But when Anne and Adam look into disappearances among the homeless of one Southside parish, they find themselves trapped and terrified within the walls of St Nicholas as all hell breaks loose around them...
