DARK SHADOWS: THE DARKEST SHADOW is now available from Big Finish Productions. This is an episode that took quite a while to materialize, with good reason: Producers took pains to wait for actors David Selby and Donna McKechnie to align so that they could record their performances together in the studio. THE DARKEST SHADOW is also a double-length episode, though Big Finish has kindly refrained from charging twice as much for it.

In addition to Selby and McKechnie, THE DARKEST SHADOW features appearances from Denise Nickerson and Wally Wingert. If you're unfamiliar with Wingert, here's a link to a podcast interview we did with him back in February. DARK SHADOWS fans are everywhere!

THE DARKEST SHADOW is available on compact disc and as an MP3 download from the company website. Here's the official plot synopsis:

“I am Olivia Corey, the eternal actress. I’ve lived my whole life in two dimensions. Perhaps I prefer it that way.”

Olivia Corey has been offered the role of her life.

They’re making a movie called The Curse of Collinwood by Mr D Curtis. Apparently it’s based on a true story about an old house in Maine where all manner of terrible things happen.

Olivia is offered the role of ‘Amanda Harris’, a woman created from a painting, destined to fall in love with a cursed man, destined to roam the Earth to find him again.

How could she refuse?

After all, it’s the part she was born to play…

Admittedly, it took a long time for me to see beyond the differences in the Original Dark Shadows and Big Finish's Dark Shadows. The 2012 film helped me get past that. These audio dramas have been in production these past 9 years, steadily improving, and so it's taken me months to catch up on the 50+ hours of the continuing series. The original cast has put stupendous work into these amazing performances. To other Dark Shadows fans out there who have resisted Big Finish, I can't emphasize enough how exciting it is to have these much-loved characters back with us -- they're living, breathing people living out their lives in Collinsport.
