Torchwood-The Phoenix Watch; In the far future after the disbandment of the Time Agency (which developed out of Torchwood 3 originally) due to the corruption by infiltration of the Committee (see my notes) a new branch of Torchwood arises and they have technology based on the Gallifreyan Matrix which stores bio data, memories, and personality. The New Government of Gallifrey have a partnership with them through a Gallifreyan version of a watchdog group called the Historical Guardians Society which evolved from the Celestial Preservation Agency first as an off-shoot Branch and later as their own organization that still works closely with the CPA. (See Notes) They resurrect some of Torwood 3 in the far future and this is their story

Alex is walking into a forest with a supposed wildfire in it. He doesn't see any smoke, but just to be sure he goes out into it to retrieve his brand new truck. Unfortunately, the fire is a lot closer than he thinks. Believing he is going to die (or maybe is already dead), Alex finds a shed completely unscathed by the flames and the heat. That can't be it though, can it? He must be seeing things, heat mirages or something.

It's not a heat mirage, and it's not a shed. What is it, then? How is it here, how does it exist without being burnt to a crisp like he himself almost is, and who is the woman who discovers him?

When one thinks about Dark Shadows, you quickly come to realise that it isn’t horror in the conventional sense, sure, there are Vampires, Werewolves, Witches, and Ghosts but there is something else about it, almost something romantic. It has the feel of an old dusty book with stories more concerned about the loss of potential or lost souls rather than ghosts and ghoulies.

And Dark Shadows is everything, it is the empty, dark school at night, the creepy house on the hill, the OAP who the kids think is a witch. But it is also about love, the loss of a love, the gain of the love, the love that never was. This is what Love Lives On grabs with both hands and runs with.

Tuesdays and Thursdays

Kicking off this new anthology release is Tuesdays and Thursdays which concerns Professor Timothy Eliot Stokes who seems to continuously encounter the local psychic, Janet Findly, over and over again…

Matthew Waterhouse (Adric from Doctor Who) is quickly becoming a main fixture in the world of Dark Shadows. Having listened to a couple of his previous outings, you really know he has finally found his niche and he gives a brilliant performance, painting vivid images with real ease. You could quite cheerfully sit there and listen to him read the phonebook.

At first, the meetings between Stokes and Findly seem like nothing more than pure coincidence, but as Waterhouse and author, Cody Schell tells us, there is no such thing as coincidences in Collinsport.

Tuesdays and Thursdays kicks this new anthology off on a high and is a charming beginning as well as being great fun to listen too as we hear Stokes becoming more and more enamoured with Findly. While this isn’t the big, rip-roaring summer rom-com that we might expect from something with a summer release date, it delights in its more autumnal somber tone and certainly feels more in keeping with the traditions of Dark Shadows.

The Velvet Room

The second story takes us quickly from charm to sheer terror. The Velvet Room is obviously the opposite of the previous story and has a much more claustrophobic and intense feel about it.

This tale concerns Gerard Stiles and Hallie Stokes, who find themselves with the offer of their hearts desire at a club mysteriously called the Velvet Room. It all seems simple enough. All they must do is visit three times and tell us the stories of their strange lives before they are given what they really want.

The Velvet Room has the feel of a real old Hollywood horror movie. The denizens of the Velvet Room are particularly interesting and the setting is suitably macabre. It is a story that certainly ticks all the horror boxes.

And this already strong story is made even better by the narration from James Storm, whose brilliant performance gives us an even stronger look at the life of the anguished and desperate undead Gerard Stiles.

Behind Closed Doors

This is a story that is designed to remind us that the most appalling of horror stories never really concerns Vampires or Witches but those horrors which surround us in the very real world. It is that of man’s inhumanity to his fellow man.

This is used to transport Dark Shadows into a new dimension of sheer terror to the subject of domestic abuse. Narrator, Marie Wallace, gives us a tour de force of a performance as Jessica Griffin, a woman on the cusp of pure happiness with husband-to-be, Willie Loomis. But she is still haunted by the memory of her dead and abusive ex-husband.

Being Dark Shadows, death doesn’t really mean a lot and following a particularly hard day in her bar, Jessica receives a terrifying visit from the man who tried to control her with an iron fist.

This tale is a tense half-hour, as we relive the awful life that Jessica had lived before the death of her first husband.

Behind Closed Doors is easily the strongest tale of this set and is a really unsettling piece to listen to but is a story that deserves the time devoted to it and needs to be heard to really be appreciated.

The Suitcase

This anthology set is drawn to a close with the story of Cyrus and Sabrina Longworth, owners of the local Collinport Inn, where a mysterious guest arrives claiming to be a traveling cosmetics seller. But of course, the suitcase is something else entirely and is much deadlier than it first appears.

The story works as a cautionary one, concerning the idea that one should be careful what you wish for as Sabrina’s deepest, innermost desires seem to be being granted.

But is there a steep price?

Surely there must be a price?

The Suitcase continues the theme of love, relationships, loss and longing that permeates this release and we end the set on a touch of melancholy.

And what is Dark Shadows without a touch of melancholy…

Blogtor Rating: 9/10
