Critic Reviews

Score: 4.6

Miranda Sawyer • The Guardian Nov 21, 2020

"I loved both Charles Dexter Ward and The Whisperer, so it’s no surprise that I’m taken with Innsmouth: so much so that I begged the publicist for more episodes (and no, this does not happen often). It’s the combination of realistic dialogue, genuine spookiness and swift pace, as well as the acknowledgment that the listener has a brain. You’ll get no spoilers from me. But I wouldn’t listen while holding a full paint pot, for instance."

Andrew Liptak • The Verge Jan 27, 2020

"[The Case of Charles Dexter] The 10-part podcast from the BBC is an updated version of that original story, and there’s a meta quality to the series as you follow a pair of journalists trying to put together a podcast like Serial or S-Town. It’s an enthralling listen — the series updates the story for the modern day, and follows the efforts of two reporters who are trying to unravel the connection between Ward and Willett. In many ways, the series feels like a mashup of Serial with the first season of HBO’s True Detective."
