I am thoroughly impressed by the characterization and fantastic editing and sound design with this podcast. I was freaked out, chilled to the bone, biting my nails nervous throughout many scenes in this thrilling and shocking climax. I loved this story so much that I'm listening to it again!

I'm now up to episode 7, the sense of tension has been maintained throughout. This is certainly a ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ series so far. Why do I always listen to this during the early hours of the morning? It certainly adds to the atmosphere! 😱😱 I'm looking forward to the final episode next week.

I am now 5 episodes in and still enthralled. Both the storyline and the quality of this somewhat spooky drama reminds me of what radio dramas used to be like.

Gripping, intense, thought provoking and spiritual chaos. This is a fantastic podcast that brings you to a small town of Scotland and immerses you into the life of one very brave police sergeant on a very fateful Easter weekend. You must give this podcast a try!!

An interesting twist: I like the way that Sgt O'Hara is being questioned during the dual timetime-frame....After the event. The tension on the Island builds .

The intriguing introduction in the church certainly piqued my interest... By the time Sgt Jackie O'Hara reached the pub, I was virtually hooked..... When the episode ended in the remote farmhouse bedroom I was totally snared. It probably wasn't a good idea to listen to this at 3am! Really looking forward to the next episode. 😱

I am really enjoying this podcast! I binged listened to the first three episodes and I am now just hanging on to the edge of my seat for the next installment . It is produced wonderfully and I can close my eyes and very easily get lost in the story. Joanne Froggatt does an amazing job !
