This is my first foray into the Big Finish classic drama range. What a complete bomb shell. This is a audio drama unsurpassed, a master peace of audio wizardry that paints the entire story almost without question into your very conscious. Without doubt it is a standalone drama that demands you sit down and listen from start to finish. I cannot recommend this enough, the quality from the acting is of the finest, the sound stage is without question, taking you into the mysterious and haunting landscape of Shelley's Gothic wonder.
Briggs is excellent, and Darvill is a class act, you can immediately under standard his psychotic narcissistic mind from the off, and it adds a dimension that I have never got from the book, of which I read some years ago. The comment of "you sir are the monster" is never more apt, in this re-telling of the tale, and that is thanks in no small part to the quality of the performances given. Everyone in this is fantastic and I can say I cannot find fault, the telling of the tale is easy on the ear, and passes with the heart rate going up at the most terror strewn moments, and it really paints the bleak horror of the whole sometimes claustrophobic peace.
