Ah, to be back into that strange, strange world of Dark Shadows. Thank you, Big Finish, for these audio stories, and for bringing back David, Kathryn, John, and Lara to their original roles! This first story is really more to re-introduce the characters and to work a way into getting another character into the story, but it's still a good tale, moody and evocative. Kudos to the team for capturing the allure that is Dark Shadows!

this was a pretty good dark shadows story. the plot was fairly simple but as it is the opener for the first season this can be forgiven. it was more about introducing the characters and getting them in place for the next entry in the series. that being said, without prior knowledge of dark shadows this will probably be a bit hard to fathom.

This was really, really good. I went into it not knowing anything about the franchise (before my time), but I able to pick it up really quickly. The atmosphere was great, the dialogue was sharp and it was all suitably spooky. Great stuff all round.
