The Beast of Orlok

This Saturday sees part two of The Beast of Orlok released on the Big Finish website.  Starring Paul McGann and Sheridan Smith with guest stars Miriam Margolyes and Samuel Barnett, Barnaby Edwards’ adventure is set in a cursed 19th century Germany town.

The Beast of Orlok is a continuation of the superb new series of 30 minute Doctor Who adventures released weekly on a Saturday evening on the Big Finish website.

With fangs like splinters, claws like knives, the Beast of Orlok gobbles lives.
With brimstone breath and eyes aglow, he’ll eat your soul – to Hell you’ll go!

Germany, 1827. The town of Orlok is under a curse, haunted by the memory of a spate of grisly murders that shattered the community twenty years before. At the time, townsfolk blamed the legendary Beast of Orlok, a nightmarish creature from medieval folklore.

And now, it seems, the Beast has returned. As the killings begin again, the people of Orlok are understandably suspicious of two strangers newly arrived in their midst. The Doctor and Lucie must face their darkest fears as they find themselves plunged into a decidedly grim fairytale.

The full cast is as follows: Paul McGann (The Doctor), Sheridan Smith (Lucie Miller), Miriam Margolyes (Frau Tod), Samuel Barnett (Hans), Peter Guinness (Baron Teufel), Nick Wilton (Otto Pausbacken), Trevor Cooper (Judah), Alison Thea-Skot (Greta), Nicholas Briggs (Lugner)
