Brilliant Dramatic Thriller Production

Another fantastic example of Bafflegab Productions AudioDrama work. I enjoyed every moment & was scared quite a few too. Cant wait for the next project.

Zahara Roberts ,

Fantastic voice talent!

I’ve never seen the original tv drama but I loved this radio play adaptation. Brilliantly creepy.

Menagers ,

Wonderful!

A great, creepy listen.
