"I heard voices..."
London, 1941. Quentin Collins need not fear the bombing because he is immortal but there's much else to be scared of. The voices of his past will not rest. They are the ghosts of those he's lost. And there are other voices A creeping fog reaching out to him...
Taking refuge in an old museum will not help Quentin either, for the museum has ghosts of its own.
More voices reaching out through the darkness...

Yes, my dears - a 10 out of 10. I try to save them for something really special, and good grief, this is! Every one of these DS releases reinforces my view that this is Big Finish's most consistently brilliant range, and this is one of the best. It really is. It is atmospheric, creepy, compelling ... I could just list superlatives for ever!
It's pretty much a given that David Selby is brilliant. He never puts a foot wrong, ensuring that Quentin Collins is sinister, charming and good humoured. Never to be under-estimated, Quentin has the ability to suggest much strength and power beneath his gentlemanly demeanor.
Here, Selby is matched by ex-Doctor Who actor Matthew Waterhouse who really impresses as the initially somewhat fawning, forever apologising John Cunningham. Waterhouse is a revelation here, and a million miles away from his precocious Adric character. I guessed there was more to Cunningham than was immediately obvious because the character is slightly [i]too [/i]decent, too eager to please. When his true motives and personalities are revealed, it is powerful stuff indeed - and yet it is almost possible to sympathise with him when the tables are once again turned and he suffers a gruesome fate at the hands of Quentin, who is evidently [i]not [/i]such a good man after all!
Honestly, this is top-rate stuff, very visual and at times, becomes (momentarily) more of a full-cast drama. But it is the intimacy between the two men, both apparently victims of The Creeping Fog that really impresses. Easily one of the best things in the Dark Shadows audio line ... but then, I say that about most of their releases!
