I absolutely love this modern retelling of the works of Lovecraft through the lens of investigative journalism. I was hooked from premise along and the execution was everything you'd expect from the BBC. Highly recommend!
A really interesting interpretation of Lovecraft, whit a modern take that revives it. Maybe Lovecraft purists will hate it, for myself I found it brilliant, the first season especially. Loved the interconnession between the three series, which present the same story through different investigations.
This was a great reimagining of Lovecraft's works. Stylish, tense, funny at times, and with great character development and plot. You will be on the edge of your seat waiting for the next reveal.
This podcast wins massively on two unexpected fronts: being a good lovecraft adaptations, being a good fictional, "found audio" podcast. Absolutely brilliant. Peaks in the first series before the plots gets messier but it is always great!
Hello! My name is Ken. As a fellow podcaster, I know how important reviews can be to creators like us. That’s why, in the spirit of the season, I’ve decided to give your podcast 5 stars. If you’re also feeling in a giving mood, feel free to review mine as well! It’s called PRRP, which stands for Podcast Reviews Reviews Podcast. (It’s a podcast that reviews the reviews of its podcast.) Happy holidays!
BBC Sounds makes some really great fiction podcasts. Top notch plots, voice actors, and sound designs. Check out the Shadow Over Innsmouth. The cast is really talented and the story is engaging.
Easily some of the best podcast drama I have ever heard. I was gripped from start to end.
The three series involved in making up 'The Lovecraft Investigations' are extraordinary! From production values to voice acting, these stories are a joy to listen to, even in their scarier moments. Starting with 'The Case of Charles Dexter Ward', through 'The Whisperer in Darkness' and concluding with 'The Shadow over Innsmouth', this a single story told through three different, but connected, investigations. Although based on the original stories by H P Lovecraft, these series have updated them to the modern era and changed things around a bit. Purists may hate them, but I found the experience to be enjoyable, unnerving and thrilling in equal measure!
(Season 1) Lovecraft story delivered as a modern-day true crime investigation.
Wonderfully produced and edited. As far as investigative podcasts go, this is very good.
I almost listened to the entire series back to back, I just couldn´t stop. It´s realistic and convincing acting, so much so that you almost forget that it IS acting. The story is complicated, entertaining and full of surprises and it takes you on a wild ride, where nothing is what it seems. Intrigue, suspense, action, drama, fantasy, scifi - it´s all there in a perfect mix that is absolutely addictive and impossible to stop listening to.
WOW! i dont how i missed this podcast, everything the BBC puts out is top notch. Really entertaining story keeps you gripped and entertained. Never really sure where the story will lead. If you like this then yoy must check out TRACKS also from the BBC just as good if not better
The platonic ideal of a Lovecraftian horror updated for modern times. I love the skeptic professor who sideeyes all the conspiracy craziness. Please keep her.
I had attempted a few modern audio dramas before I stumbled upon this one, and none of them had really drawn me in. This show and everything about it immediately captivated my attention. It's written extremely well, and while, you can definitely tell they are acting, the performances are very convincing, so much so that I stopped to question whether it was actual reporting several times. The story is intriguing enough to keep you on edge, and some of the scenes are downright spooky, especially if you listen in a room alone. Highly recommend listening to this if you enjoy suspense and drama.
