So, this week, Dorian has ended up in The Atlantic (bit of a big deal), and his Hallowe’en special - The Prime of Deacon Brodie - was released just the other night… together with a special Big Finish Podcast with Alex, me, Gary Russell and Nicholas Briggs - which you can hear for free here! (Great place to start if you’ve never heard Dorian yet - and if not, why not?!)
This week, I’ve also signed off on the effects edit of The Mayfair Monster - our New Year special written by Alexander Vlahos himself, with Jolyon Westhorpe - and it’s once again something very different in style and format: a two-part horror, romance, thriller, guest starring Hannah Spearritt and Colin Baker… all very exciting!
Oh, and I’ve been pulling together material for the Complete Confessions Series 1 & 2 CD Boxset! And it’s lovely… in fact, there’s so much content, the Big Finish website doesn’t quite pack it all in in their description. So, here’s a quick breakdown of what you’ll be getting in January. Basically, it’s a ten-disc set comprising:
No word yet on whether there will be a third series of adventures for Dorian, but I’ve chatted my ideas through with Alex and I certainly know what we’ll be doing should we get the opportunity… and I know we’re biased, but we hope we get to tell those stories! So if you love Dorian as much as we do, please do share the love and spread the word… and who knows, we might yet hear more from our favourite immortal bastard!
Until then, I shall continue mulling!
“We are each our own devils, and we make this world our hell.”
So said Oscar Wilde, reportedly. So said Oscar Wilde to Dorian Gray—or, at least, so he did in the first episode of The Confessions of Dorian Gray. The series, a creation of the British audio drama company Big Finish Productions, imagines that Dorian Gray was real and immortal, friends with Oscar Wilde, and Wilde made The Picture of Dorian Gray by fictionalizing Gray’s life. In Confessions, Wilde says the words when his old (but still young-looking) friend visits him on his deathbed. And though Wilde passes by the end of the episode, his words haunt the title character throughout the 20th century and into the 21st.
It’s those words that help make Confessions such a terrifying series. On the occasion of Confessions' Halloween special, the show is well worth checking out as an example of what makes horror work—and should provide new kinds of scares to anyone used to rewatching classic slasher flicks each October 31.

So, I listened to the final mix of The Confessions of Dorian Gray: The Prime of Deacon Brodie today… been a bit busy generally, hence the lack of posting, but I just had to comment on this because Neil Gardner and James Dunlop have done the most stunning work on sound design and music. It really is an experience from start to finish, and the cast are all clearly having a ball. (I know I’m biased, but it’s a nice 75-minute slice of Hallowe’en listening, and well worth checking out! Plus it’s being released as part of a Complete Dorian CD Boxset in January - so everyone can own Alex’s voice to listen to again and again!)
Otherwise, just pulling together a podcast we recorded with myself, Alex, script editor Gary Russell, and questionmaster Nicholas Briggs… I wouldn’t even say it’s organised chaos, but there’s lots of laughter and it’s possibly even slightly informative.
More on that soon… not long now until Deacon Brodie makes his presence felt!
What can I say? She’s a hoot!
What can I say? A series of lovely reviews for Dorian! If you want to know more, check out www.bigfinish.com!

X2. THE PRIME OF DEACON BRODIE
Edinburgh, 1920. Seizing upon the possibility of a reunion with his closest comrade from the trenches, Dorian arrives in the capital city of Scotland on Halloween! Guisers are out in force, disapproving gentlemen walk the streets… and a sinister department store has a great deal more on offer than it might initially advertise.
Note: The Confessions of Dorian Gray contains adult material and is not suitable for younger listeners.
