I’m proud to announce another project for Big Finish: having written a short story and audio drama set in the universe of Doctor Who, I’ve now written an entire novel based on another work of British telefantasy…
I’m not sure how many readers of this blog will be familiar with The Omega Factor. It’s a series from 1979 about a pair of paranormal investigators and the sundry psychic phenomena they encountered on a weekly basis. My novel, Divinity, expands the series’ mythos into the past, as Tom Crane and Anne Reynolds become embroiled in a mystery that has its roots in the occult world of postwar Britain.
The Omega Factor: Divinity will be out in July in audiobook-only format, read by series co-star Louise Jameson (Doctor Who fans will know her as Leela, companion to the Fourth Doctor). Pre-order it here!
When Tom Crane is sent to the sleepy village of Coldad to investigate a poltergeist, he expects to uncover nothing more than an elaborate hoax. Then the terrified Wright family invite him to spend the night in their haunted house, and he gets to experience the unsettling phenomenon at a closer range than he might have liked.
The investigation takes an even more personal turn when Anne Reynolds turns up an old interview, hidden on a dusty cassette in the Department’s archives.
Who was Margaret Grange, and why was Department 7 so interested in her life story? And could Coldad have a sinister connection with Edward Drexel, the evil magician who killed Tom’s wife?
