*In case it needed saying*

While we still have to wait until September for the actual release date of this Mary Shelley classic, Big Finish Audiobooks will be releasing two different version of Frankenstein: the first is a Special Edition that will be going for CAN (Sorry, it didn’t take me to any US website) $43.18 on CD or CAN $20 for digital, or a Limited Collector’s Edition CD with two exclusive art cards signed by Arthur Darvill and Nicholas Briggs for CAN $60.45.

Here’s what Big Finish has to say regarding the synopsis:

When the crew of the Oceanus rescued a man close to death, its captain could barely have guessed at the incredible story that man would come to share. This is the story of Victor Frankenstein: a man obsessed with discovering the secret of life and cheating death; a man who brings to life to a body built from corpses; and a man who rejects this would-be child…

Soon, Victor and his creature are entangled in a dangerous game of cat and mouse across Europe. But who is truly the monster?

Arthur Darvill stars in this gripping audiobook adaptation of Mary Shelley’s chilling tale, dramatised by Jonathan Barnes.

Aside from Arthur Darvill and Nicholas Briggs, the cast also includes:

  • Geoffrey Beevers (Alphonse Frankenstein/DeLacey) (Whovian significance: The Master)
  • Georgia Moffett (Elizabeth) (Whovian significance: Jenny)
  • Terry Molloy (Christensen/Proprietor) (Whovian significance: Davros)
