Preview: DARK SHADOWS – 50TH ANNIVERSARY INTERVIEW!

The iconic horror-soap opera series reaches a half century of storytelling this year – and we’re starting the celebrations with an exclusive interview with range producers Joseph Lidster and David Darlington about Big Finish’s 50th Anniversary Special Blood and Fire.

Since 2012, Big Finish Producer Joseph Lidster and David Darlington have worked together on continuing the legacy of Dark Shadows, the beloved horror-soap opera originally screened between 1966-1971. The series centers around the Collins Family – a wealthy clan of aristocrats cursed by supernatural powers, including the vampire Barnabas Collins (Andrew Collins, reprising the role originally played by Jonathan Frid), the werewolf Quentin Collins (David Selby) and the witch Angelique (Lara Parker). The original television series lasted for 1,225 episodes, with the story continuing in over 60 Big Finish audio plays.

Later this year Big Finish will be celebrating the series’ half-centenary with the two hour 50th Anniversary Special Dark Shadows: Blood & Fire.

Dark Shadows 50th Anniversary Special: Blood & Fire and can be pre-ordered today for just £14.99 on CD or £12.99 to download. And remember, when you choose to buy this release on CD directly from Big Finish, you will also unlock access to a digital copy for download on the day of release.

Pre-orders for Dark Shadows: Bloodline will be opening soon. In the meantime, you can catch up on the story so far with the first episode of Dark Shadows: Bloodlust, available to download for free from the Big Finish website. You can also get an introduction to the range with our video trailer below:
