    “Mordred has grown up and has a very sexy voice” That was my first thought listening to this This box set is fantastic—great stories many different themes all toldacted brilliantly It’s great fun to listen to

    Fantastic stuff I bought these audio plays for the sake of the lead actor Alexander Vlahos and for Rupert Young who plays Moriarty in a Christmas Special episode Audio plays aren't my usual thing so I went in with zero expectations and I was majorly impressed These plays are well written tales of the 'real life' Dorian Gray who inspired Oscar Wilde's novel We hear his adventures in different time periods past present and future and we meet his loves and his friends all of whom he of course out lives Dorian is refreshingly presented with no coyness at all as openly bisexual; and he has proper friendships with men and women too I think Vlahos has it right when he picks out the two best episodes as being the one with Dorian's true love Toby and the other with his bestie Dorothy Parker they call each other Dotty and Dodo ♥ Dorian is a fascinating character As self centred and narcissistic as he obviously must be and referred to by his creators as a 'villain' not even an anti hero the tales are nevertheless told from his own charming point of view and I couldn't help but like him He can love after all and his heart breaks and he treats most people decently and he combats evil But yes Not your average Good Guy by any means The plays are very well produced with all the appropriate music and sound effects and very well acted too Highly recommended

    What if Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray was based on fact? What if the story didn't end with Dorian destroying his portrait? What would life for Dorian Gray be like in the 1940's 1970's 2000's?Full of love indifference decadence and the supernatural this series of audio plays tackles those uestions and in a brilliantly engaging way Each story or episode is approximately 12 an hour which seems to be just enough time for Dorian to win you over once again with his side of the story of immortality The actors are all brilliant Alexander Vlahos brings Dorian to life in such a relatable way with just the right mix of villain and hero It is obvious that uite a bit of thought goes into developing and portraying all the characters even the ones that only appear in one story

    A collected edition of the first two “seasons” of Dorian Gray the 30 minute episodes are presented in chronological rather than publication order with a few 60 minute stories rounding out the set Alexander Vlahos of Merlin and Versailles among other things plays the eponymous antihero narrating the stories assisted by a small number of additional actors playing various guest charactersThe series features the eponymous character who in this version does not die as he does in Wilde’s real world novel It’s a series of mostly supernatural horror stories making use of Gray’s immortality to visit various decades throughout his life With different writers for each episode the various stories tend to have markedly different tones; some work others do not but the former are commonThis World Our Hell – The series stakes its pitch with an opener that is part character piece with Gray visiting the dying Oscar Wilde in 1900 Paris and part horror story as something horrible stalks the hotel For such a short story it works uite well and Vlahos delivers a good performance as the tortured yet callous title characterThe Immortal Game – This story ventures into psychological horror as Gray becomes involved with two men playing an unusual chess game in Brighton on the eve of the First World War The story muses on the nature of good and evil and has a twist in the tail that only deepens the uestion of which in this story is whichMurder on 81st Street – A fairly straightforward monster tale enlivened partly by the setting with Nazi sympathisers in 1939 New York City but mainly by Gray’s encounter with Dorothy Parker The latter is played by Sarah Douglas of the ‘70s Superman films who brings a well written script to life lending an earthy tone to the storyThe Houses In Between – A particularly dark tale set during the height of the London Blitz which sees Gray haunted by mysterious spirits The devastation of the bombing parallels the psychological damage that Gray has left in his wake as some really uite unpleasant sides of his character show through It certainly reminds us that our protagonist is no heroThe Twittering of Sparrows – Another psychological instalment with the monster never truly described and staying largely in the shadows The story instead focuses on Dorian’s connection with an elderly woman in 1950s Singapore and how it reflects on his past It’s perhaps rather a slight story and while the tone manages to be uite sinister the emotional punch at the end is undercut by what we’ve already been through in earlier episodesThe Lord of Misrule – This tale of Mods and Rockers in the British music scene of the ‘60s is a rather mixed bag On the one hand most of it doesn’t feel like horror and Gray is portrayed as of a traditional hero than usual On the other hand swearing drug taking explicit sex for audio and one particularly gory scene all hint that something rather darker was intended The lively music aids the former aspect but clashes with the latter oh and Vlahos may be a good actor but judging from this he’s no singerThe Heart That Lives Alone – A subtle supernatural romance much of which is co narrated by the object of Dorian’s obsessionaffection emphasising his status as an eual The story contrasts the lives of the immortal Gray and the mysterious guest character who is hiding a particularly dark secret of his own It’s a beautifully written piece making Dorian vulnerable than usual and with a memorable final sceneThe Picture of Loretta Delphine – A traditional horror story about the legacy of a long dead serial killer this is also makes good use of the format with only one other person being present during the events in uestion More significantly it examines how Dorian has fared and changed over the course of a lifetime that has by this point lasted for well over a hundred years The ending is perhaps a little obvious but it works as character developmentThe Ghosts of Christmas Past – A rather different story than most of the others and not just because it is a full cast 60 minute instalment this is of a mystery with supernatural elements than a horror tale It also revolves heavily around the repercussions of the events in Wilde’s original novel bar of course Dorian’s death and perhaps significantly involves Gray meeting Sherlock Holmes Unfortunately putting Holmes in a supernatural story isn’t something that really works betraying much of the point of the character and blunting his usefulness The Prime of Deacon Brodie – The second 60 minute story makes a better use of its length to tell a tale in the style of the regular episodes but with depth than they can typically allow Here a supernatural threat related to the real 18th century thief Deacon Brodie is placed alongside the mundane horrors of World War I It also has time to portray Gray as a complex character acting out of love yet with his darker side still bubbling beneath the surfaceThe Mayfair Monster – The third of the double length stories starts off as a romance between Dorian and a famous artist Soon it takes a much darker turn and delves into the relationship between Gray and his portrait It’s of an exploration of the character and his nature than a regular horror tale and makes good use of the guest actors to tell an engaging piece with its theme of endings built around the central date of New Year’s Eve 1999Running Away With You – Both the first and the last story in the set chronologically speaking this sees the present day Gray reminiscing about a particularly formative time in his youth I have to say that I didn’t fully follow what was going on here although there are certainly some uncomfortable moments with a psychologically damaged governess It also seemingly wraps up the arc of the series although in fact three seasons followed before the actual finale Hopefully that will be less confusing than this was

    For the most part I enjoyed these two series There were some elements that I didn't care for and I was not thrilled with the ending of series 2 It was a bland ending for the character even knowing that there is to come

  6. Mia Ferraioli Mia Ferraioli says:

    Wow I got so many feels from this series I can't even It was well written and the voice acting was marvelous Alexander Vlahos is a great actor and series 01 and 02 highlights this What sells me on audiobooks is the voices behind it If they lack the emotions or the nuance of the story then it's just as if you were reading it on your own but Alex really sold me on it The emotions he and all the voice actors and actresses portray in this is simply breathtaking The pain we hear in Dorian's voice especially in the Heart that Lives Alone made me cry and weep I felt his pain in that moment and it broke me There was one story I didn't particularly like; not that it was bad but it wasn't a personal favorite but even that I'd listen to again once in a while I love how it mixes horror and humor as well Some are all gore and horror but with a premise like that I'd expect some to be without humorOverall this is definitely a favorite and I can't wait to listen to the rest of the series; I definitely would recommend this to anyone and everyone

  7. Anne Barwell Anne Barwell says:

    Wow This series hooked me in from the beginning and kept me listening I love what BF have done with the Dorian Gray story The individual stories take place in different time periods from late 19thC to the 27th C and everything in between They all have twists and several of them were OMG I didn't see THAT coming Great cast with a few familiar voicesSo pleased I already have season 3 to listen to as I need to know what happens to Dorian next
