It was summer and it was very warm when we recorded Ghost Walk. I remember it fondly for a number of reasons; this was the first story I'd worked on with Matthew Waterhouse, whom I found to be charming and friendly and it was fun to work with Fenella Woolgar again. The last time Fenella and I worked together was on Nevermore, with Paul McGann and Emilia Fox, amongst others.
It's always an absolute joy to be in the company of Carolyn Seymour and working with her on this story was a real treat. Having not seen her since the recording, I can honestly say that I miss her; I miss her wit and her intelligence and her hugely charismatic energy. I also remember my fabulous friend, Sarah Sutton, giving me a lift home from the studio and our getting stuck in incredibly dense traffic - thank goodness for the joy of easy conversation - and air-con!
Director Barnaby Edwards always creates a great working environment and Ghost Walk was consequently a lot of fun to record. I'm not sure that my role in this audio drama is especially pivotal, but I do look forward to giving a listen.
Here are some details:
"This is a city of ghosts and no-one knows them better than Leanne. Twice a night she leads tourists to visit the most haunted sites - the Hanging Yard, the Witch Pool, the Screaming House, and, of course, the Catacombs.
Leanne’s realised the ghosts of the city are real. Something’s lurking in the Catacombs - an ancient force that has been growing in the darkness for centuries. Sabaoth is returning and they must be stopped before they devour the world. Leanne knows this, because a ghost told her.
A ghost called The Doctor."
