The official Twitter feed for The Confessions of Dorian Gray (@DorianGrayBFP) has revealed a first wave of casting announcements for the upcoming series…

Doctor Who stars Nicola Bryant and Terry Molloy act alongside one another for the first time since 1985! Also joining the fun are Alex Jordan, Toby Longworth, Edward Harrison and Sophie Wu… not to mention an old face (quite literally) in the form of Bernard Holley!

And, of course, Alexander Vlahos returns to the role of Dorian!

The eight-part series can be pre-ordered on CD and download ahead of its November release direct from Big Finish: http://www.bigfinish.com/releases/v/the-confessions-of-dorian-gray—-series-three-1092

More news soon!

nslayton asks:
So I'm heading to Europe next month, and I'll be in London and the surrounding areas on the 9th-12th, and then the 27th-30th. I'm not sure how busy you'll be or if you'll even be around, but if you are, I owe you a drink and many thanks in person. I'm currently scrambling trying to call in favors to crash on couches or find ultra-cheap hostels in the city, but if you're free, I can clear my schedule in a heartbeat.

Hello sir! I’m not actually based in London, and not sure to be down until september, so this might be slightly tricky. Though if that changes, I shall let you know :) Would be nice to say hi! Hope all’s well with you…

What can I say? We’ve wrapped on series three of The Confessions of Dorian Gray!
It goes without saying I love my work, but there’s something very special about working with mates, and nothing is a greater pleasure than reuniting with Vlahos in studio and watching him give good Gray.
So yeah, sad we’ve come to an end of this one… but there’s plenty more in store. And if you want to hear more of the adventures of the old rogue, click the link, pre-order and support the series!

Yup. We’re halfway through recording the third series of The Confessions of Dorian Gray and, as you can see, it’s proving particularly tough on our leading man…

Ask Alex Vlahos…

Hello all!

Just a very quick one - in a few weeks’ time, Alex and I will be back in studio embarking upon the third series of The Confessions of Dorian Gray for Big Finish: http://www.bigfinish.com/releases/v/the-confessions-of-dorian-gray—-series-three-1092

Anyhow, hopefully, we’re going to find some time to record a special podcast ahead of the series’ release in November. So, if you have any questions for Alex or myself about Dorian, etc, now’s the chance to pitch them!

Thanks, all!

So, any questions…?

After 15 years producing top audio drama join us in wishing #bigfinish a Happy Birthday. www.bigfinish.com http://thndr.it/SsSvCuwww.bigfinish.com http://thndr.it/SsSvCu

Shameless plugging here.
On August 10th, I’m allegedly running the Salisbury 5-4-3-2-1, a 50km (31 mile) race, where I’ll be raising money for my chosen charity, Guide Dogs.
Six weeks of training still to go, and it’s tough going. Yesterday was 15 miles, today was 17, and it gets worse over the next few weeks… but it’s all for a great cause. Seriously - what Guide Dogs do to better the lives of the blind and the visually impaired (not to mention their famiies) is phenomenal, and well worth raising awareness of.
So, if you’re able, please visit my JustGiving page and, if you’re so inclined, donate what you can to this brilliant cause. I’d really appreciate the support.

So yes, hello! Quick little update from me, this time around.

As many of you will know, I’m a little sidetracked with series three of The Confessions of Dorian Gray at the moment. Alex and I have been keeping schtum about it since it was greenlit back in January, and now we’ve dates booked to record, and all’s set for a release in November. Woop!

A few people have been in touch to ask about the release format. Basically, this time round - because there was a lot of demand for physical copies - we’re releasing both the CD and download simultaneously in November. However, CD copies ALSO come with an automatic download, so you won’t have to wait for the pesky postman to deliver in order to listen to it. Hooray!

People also ask why we don’t make Dorian more regular, and that’s partly due to torrenting. Sad truth, but Big Finish isn’t a big company, and there are a lot of people who download the series without buying the product. So even with a wide audience, there’s always a danger illegal downloading will kill the series off, as has happened with a few popular Big Finish ranges in the past. But there you go! If you enjoy the series, buy from Big Finish, and hopefully there’ll be even more to enjoy!

Speaking of which, here’s a link to the series three page - eight episodes, and an hour of behind-the-scenes material, all for just £20 (CD) or £18 (download) if you pre-order:

http://www.bigfinish.com/releases/v/the-confessions-of-dorian-gray—-series-three-1092

Needless to say, we’re all very excited about what series three has in store. I can’t say whether it addresses the end of series two or not - the joy of Dorian’s longevity is he can go back as well as forward - but it’s very different beast from what came before in a lot of ways. But that’s all I’m saying. For now…

Once it’s all in the can, we’ll let slip casting details too. So stay tuned!

Oh, and if you want to hear a wee trailer, why not visit the Big Finish Soundcloud page?

doctress:

Can I just say how much I love Dorian Gray’s theme music in The Confessions of Dorian Gray? It gives me chills to hear it.

James Dunlop is a genius.

And this particular variation is so epic, it feels like it belongs in the credits to a TV show - or perhaps a feature film.

This theme ♥ god it’s beautiful.

Cannot argue at all. Dunlop is a god.

Just now noticed I received my commission from Hamish Steele! Which means super adorable Peter and super neat Benny!

I’m glad you like it! I really wanted to capture all her various looks mixed together but keep her looking like Lisa Bowerman.

This is amazing!
