Spy-fi audio drama starring Genevieve Gaunt, Sacha Dhawan, Paterson Joseph and Nicola Walker. From the worlds of Thunderbirds creator Gerry Anderson.

Series Summary: The First Action Bureau exists to protect the Earth - near-utopian by 2068 - from criminal elements before they get the chance to act. Using decades of ‘big data’ and globally connected quantum artificial intelligence, the Bureau is able to predict criminal activity before it occurs. Nero Jones may be the best agent the Bureau has, but something strange is going on. Headaches and bizarre dreams are troubling this deadly assassin, and as her missions continue it becomes increasingly clear that all is not well... not just with her, but with the Bureau itself. But where do the lies end? And where does the truth begin?

Stand by for Action !!

This sounds fantastic, from a stella cast ; an emotive soundtrack and unbelievable production values !
If this talented group of professionals can produce quality such as this remotely during a lockdown- just think what they will be able to do in a proper studio .
Cannot wait for October !
Hat tipped to Jamie Anderson ; Nicholas Briggs ; the talented voice actors and all at Big Finish .
Good Luck
