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:
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!
