“Well, dammit, why do ghosts always have to be so cryptic? Why can’t they just come out and say what they want?”
“I’ve been arrested. This is my one phone call, please come quickly.”
“What did they arrest you for, flying your broom above the speed limit?”
Dark Shadows moves straight into Forever Knight territory…or perhaps She Wolf of London by way of Buffy, when Cassandra Collins summons erstwhile attorney cum private investigator Anthony Peterson to her aid once more. But this time, there’s no cigarette lighter involved…in fact, there’s no magic at all…
“Half of Collinsport thinks that I caused the breakup between you two. They talked, they gossiped, people didn’t trust me with their business anymore…my reputation was shot, thanks to your little games.
I had to leave my own hometown to start over again. You made me lie to Carolyn, spy on my friends…even attempt murder while under your spell. I almost died because of you.”
“Are you finished?”
“I guess that about covers it…”
“Near the English coast, lawyer turned private detective Tony Peterson and his partner, the witch, known as Cassandra Collins, drive the lonely back roads…what began as an adversarial relationship has blossomed into a unique partnership, both professionally and personally.”
Boy, for someone who’s been a reasonably faithful listener to Big Finish releases for the better part of a decade, there sure is a lot of interesting material I missed out on…
“Do you know why people fight? It is never because of their differences. It’s because they are the same.”
Sent off to the killing fields of the American Civil War, the erstwhile Reverend Gregory Trask is paired with a most unlikely companion…the lovely but sinister witch Angelique DuPres Collins.
“You hear the Almighty’s voice rather clearly, don’t you, Trask?”
“hmm…it’s an unpleasant calling you serve, Reverend. It seems the Almighty is always telling you to lock people away…or burn them at the stake.”
I’ve likely said it before: I’ve been a Dark Shadows fan for years.
