"The characters within The Cipher are outstanding with a truly stellar cast of talent on display. Well off the bat if you are someone that loves a sci-fi thriller this podcast is a must. But that would be doing the show an injustice as it is much more than that and can reach a much more wider audience. So to summarise if you are seeking a fresh exciting podcast that is gripping, yet rich with astounding content produced to a premium quality with a stunning roster of actors, written by writers that clearly have their fingers firmly on the pulse of what is ‘current & fresh’ to kick on with your new year The Cipher could be right up your alley. That and the fact that this podcast was commissioned by BBC Sounds meaning zero annoying adverts, which in my eyes is a massive plus point perfect for any tier of lockdown!"
