Gregg Stockdale • The Podcast Geek Sep 3, 2023

"The cast, for the most part, is very good. Adapted for audio, directed and narrated by the brilliant Simon McBurney, someone who is fresh in my mind after playing the deliciously creepy protagonist in the TV drama Hijack. He has one of those distinctive voices that I immediately recognised. I suspect this would appeal to the mid 40s folk horror fan. "
