Amazing

Just finished the first series. Very well done take on the Lovecraft stories!

Started off strong…

I was intrigued by the premise of this show (and also initially thought it would be directly related to Lovecraft’s work) and it started off pretty well. But frankly after the second season, it ventures into something else entirely; too complicated to follow and far too many characters. The mix with the supernatural and science fiction is usually a tricky area to navigate. Unfortunately it couldn’t hold my interest…

What a great series

This has been one of the most enjoyable audio dramas I have ever listened to. I binged it all in a week. Thanks so much for bringing us this, and hope to see more in the future!
