"To have written such a book was nothing… to convince the world it was a work of fiction was a triumph!"
Inspired by Oscar Wilde's classic story of hedonism and corruption, The Confessions of Dorian Gray imagines a world where Dorian Gray was real, and his friendship with Oscar Wilde once spawned the notorious novel.
Presented as a series of original horror stories, Alexander Vlahos (Merlin, Privates) takes us on a supernatural journey through the twentieth century: from Oscar Wilde's death in Paris, right through to the present day.
This complete collection features every episode from the first and second series, including three hour-long special episodes - released on CD for the very first time! Also included are the Bernice Summerfield crossover story, Shades of Gray, a soundtrack of James Dunlop's evocative music score and specially-recorded introductions from Alexander Vlahos, who selects his favourite stories from the series.
Note: The Confessions of Dorian Gray contains adult material and is not suitable for younger listeners.
PLEASE NOTE: THIS CD RELEASE DOES NOT COME WITH A FREE DOWNLOAD OF THE STORIES.
