Highlander season 2 audio

The Season 2 box set of Big Finish's Highlander audio series is now available to order on CD, or as a download, containing all 4 linked episodes featuring the Four Horsemen from the Highlander TV series. I wrote one, Scott Andrews wrote the other 3, and they're really good fun. Well, if your definition of fun includes swordfights, punchups, betrayal, murder, torture, insanity, love, hate, jokes, action, adventure, roaring rampages of revenge spanning thousands of years, and ice-cream - which mine does, of course.

From the website:

Methos. Kronos. Silas. Caspian. Four names that struck terror into the hearts of men, women and children for centuries when they rode the lands under the name The Four Horsemen.

The second series of Highlander audio adventures takes an in-depth look at these four people; their origins, their secrets, and what made them the bloodthirsty killers they became.

This link here has a lovely photo of Peter Wingfield, aka Methos, taken while he was actually recording his episode, so go and have a look, and marvel at his manly goatee. We've got all four actors who played the Horsemen, as well the fantastic Tracy-Ann Oberman, Toby Longworth, and John Banks. It's all moving along really well, and I can't wait to hear it when it's all finished. There are some more details on the June edition of the Big Finish podcast, from around 27 minutes 40 seconds in, until about 33 minutes.

But when can you own this fine entertainment?? Well, it'll be out on 31st January 2011. I know it's a while away, but hey, pretend you're an Immortal, and the time will pass by in a brief moment. Warning: you are not actually an Immortal. Do not do anything life threatening. Do not spurn potential partners by claiming you will have to watch the other person grow old and die while you remain eternally young. Do not engage anyone in swordfights, and definitely do not kill them.
