Fortitude is a place like nowhere else. Surrounded by the savage beauty of the frozen landscape, the small town in the Arctic Circle is one of the safest towns on earth. There had never been a violent crime until one brutal murder revealed a much larger story lying deep beneath this seemingly quiet town.
After last year, Fortitude will never be the same again. As the town’s residents endeavor to rebuild their lives, a fresh new murder rocks the town and plunges it into turmoil oncemore. Meanwhile, out in the stunning icy wilderness, nature is growing more unpredictable, deadly, and dangerous.
In Fortitude, nothing, and no one, is ever what they seem.

An audio re-imagining of the classic 1960’s television show The Prisoner. A secret agent leaves his career behind, only to find himself imprisoned in ‘The Village’, a bizarre seaside town where nothing is as it seems.
Given the level of scorn poured all over a previous effort to remake The Prisoner back in 2009, it’s a brave soul indeed who takes on such a challenging task. That writer, director and producer Nicolas Briggs’s effort with Big Finish is so successful is testament to a sophisticated level of artistry, skill and imagination.
The audio drama presents itself like a radio play with four episodes; Departure and Arrival, The Schizoid Man, Your Beautiful Village and The Chimes of Big Ben
Big Finish - producers of audio drama based on Doctor Who, The Avengers and Blake's 7 - have hired Mark Elstob as the lead for their new series.
Elstob is best known for his stage work, though soap fans will remember his role as Andrew Fraser on Emmerdale from 2001-2002.
The Prisoner originally starred Patrick McGoohan as a former spy trapped in a peculiar - and sinister - village. Robbed of his identity, McGoohan's character was known only as 'Number Six'.
"I knew, of course, that the casting of Number Six was pivotal," said Nicholas Briggs - writer, director and producer on the audio revival. "Patrick McGoohan was the driving force of the original series, both on and off-screen. The new central performance would have to be every bit as powerful in its own way."
Briggs called Elstob "a brilliant,

Directed By: Michelle MacLaren
Synopsis: The wedding of Tyrion and Sansa arrives; Melisandre takes Gendry to Dragonstone, where he encounters Stannis; the Hound reveals his plans for Arya; Daenerys looks to recruit the Second Sons; Sam & Gilly fight for survival beyond the Wall.
The Verdict: White Walkers, weddings, and witchcraft. Never a good mix in real life, but in this week’s Game Of Thrones, it makes for superb Telly.

Likewise, it’s nice to see Davos and Stannis back together again,
