Kennedy addresses an audio glitch and uncovers a secret code.
An unexpected phone call turns Matthew Heawood’s attention to a mystery in the gloom of Rendlesham Forest; folklore, paranormal, otherworldly? Up for debate, but fertile ground for a new investigative podcast, that’s for sure. One question still lingers, will our host be re-joined by his roaming researcher, Kennedy Fisher? The duo’s last update patched together frantic updates from Baghdad, as they pursued suspected occultists in The Case of Charles Dexter Ward. Very little hope lingered of solving the mystery, and maybe even less that Kennedy would return home safe… But for now, a new investigation calls. Following the success of The Case of Charles Dexter Ward, Radio 4 commissions a return to this HP Lovecraft-inspired universe. Once again, the podcast embraces Lovecraft’s crypt of horror, braving the Sci-Fi stylings of The Whisperer in Darkness.

Just discovered this show and burned through both seasons in two days. Brilliant work. It's atmospheric, entertaining, well written performed and produced and it stays true to everything I enjoy about Lovecraft's stories. More please!

Loved it! I missed the first series (I've now caught up!) and it took me quite a few episodes to realise this was a drama, rather than a real investigative reportage!😁 And who knew there was a UFO visit to Rendlesham forest? Bring on Series 3!!
