Awesome Arcane Mystery

Welcome to Wormwood. A town filled with urban legend ; the crossroads of darkness & fate.

A Poirotesque inspired tale of intrigue reminiscent of Twin Peaks with paranormal sinister twists.

The plot & storytelling leaves you transfixed. Often frozen in suspense, I eagerly anticipate what happens next.

Wormwood contains a captivating colourful selection of characters, all with detailed back stories. Each character is vividly brought to life by an exceptional team of performers & producers.

This narrative highlights the fact there is much we don’t know about one another, even those closest to us.

Wanting answers can lead to an obsessive relentless determination to find them at all costs.

Do we really want to know the truth? What price are we prepared to pay?

This high calibre story reflects the diligence, creativity & effort that has been invested. A must listen for all audio drama enthusiasts.

If you like :

Harry Strange, Blackwood, EOS 10, Video Palace, Paralysed & The Box you will love this.

Highly recommended

[ SYNOPSIS ]

A stranger arrives in town. The irascible Dr Xander Crowe ; A specialist in the paranormal. Drawn to Wormwood in a resolute pursuit of answers to a vision.

Sheriff Tom Bradley’s composure is vexed and disturbed by his arrival, the precursor to a rapid succession of mysterious & malevolent events.

Sheriff Tom, born & raised in Wormwood soon becomes overwhelmed by all the strange activity & feels in over his head. With limited resources and much reluctance he is forced to recruit Dr Crowe’s assistance.

Dr Crowe’s quick witted vilifications are part of his standard introduction. This reflects his seemingly permanent state of irritability. His self centred pursuit, arrogance & abrasive personality makes his presence difficult to tolerate. Though infuriating, utterly unsympathetic & grandiloquent you reluctantly gravitate towards him.

The many other characters: Sparrow, Jimmy Details, Jacob , Rachel , Tom, Chip & more ....you rapidly grow to love & cheer on.

Listen & Love

Outstanding

I've only just discovered this but I reckon it is excellent.

Stick with it if the first episode or two sound slightly clunky well worth the effort.

Has some similarities to Buffy the Vampire Slayer but Wormwood but for my money Wormwood is played slightly straighter, with less repetition and histrionics than Buffy ... Wormwood is a bit more adult and the plotting is first rate. I'm actually surprised this hasn't been picked up and turned into a TV show.

Great series

Very enjoyable. Intriguing, scary and well-written. Voice acting is top-notch! So is the sound effects - you can almost see the characters and locations. Characters feel real too. There are goodies and baddies but no one is perfect at the same time. You won't regret Wormwood :D
