Here's your first look at Dark Shadows: Bloodline


I don't get a lot of news crossing my desk here at the CHS. Mainly because my "office" (AKA: converted second floor broom closet) doesn't have a mail in box. But all that changed yesterday when a runner from the Bangor division of Big Finish wandered up the stairs yesterday, cordially inviting me and providing more details on the upcoming wedding of Amy Jennings and David Collins.

That's right, fellow audio creeps! Big Finish yesterday revealed a brand new trailer for the upcoming serial as well as the cover to Volume 1, new cast announcements, and synopsis of the story! Not too shabby for my paltry little beat, huh?

I will post the trailer below, because it is well worth the listen, but what follows is the synopsis, which you'll see we have a lot to unpack with.
In the Great House of Collinwood Amy Jennings and David Collins are finally putting years of tragedy and loss behind them and committing to a life together. And, as the ceremony approaches, friends old and new are drawn to the town at the edge of the sea. Once again, the tortured vampire, Barnabas Collins, is amongst them. But this time he is not alone. After so many years away, Doctor Julia Hoffman has returned with him, finally convinced she has the means to cure his affliction. But joy and happiness never last long in Collinsport, for malevolent forces are never far away. Among those gathered for the celebration are some who would conspire to tear the family apart. In this town some wounds refuse to heal, some secrets demand to be heard, and some sins cry out to be punished 
Welcome back to Collinsport.
Until death do you part.
JULIA IS BACK! No word yet on who is playing her, but that alone is cause for celebration. The release also lets slip that Jerry Lacy is returning as new character Matthew Young and Kathryn Leigh Scott is rejoining the cast as Maggie Haskell. Alongside Scott and Lacy are the new ensemble of Nico Diodoro, Sarah Pitard, Kelly Burke and Tom Michael Blyth (which should excite fans of the Tony & Cassandra Mysteries), all playing new locals filling out the cast around the regulars.

So if you weren't excited before now, I'm not sure what to tell you. I am very glad Lacy is back, doubly so for Julia, and maybe even triply for Scott's return! We are almost there, guys, as the serial aims for a bi-weekly release in April. You better believe we are going to cover it.

Until then, enjoy the trailer, and I'll be seeing you.
