Alex Kingston (Doctor Who, ER, A Discovery of Witches) and Warren Brown (Luther, Strike Back, X Company) star in Transference, an original audio drama from Big Finish Productions. Listen to the trailer below…
Sam Ross (Alex Kingston) is a psychotherapist – she spends her days helping people, but she can barely help herself. She’s still grieving over the recent death of her sister; her mother Barbara offers little support; and she’s professionally challenged. One of her clients is Keith (Warren Brown), a man whose life story changes with every session. And Keith has a secret – one that will rock Sam’s world to the core, and place her in the most terrible danger.
“I came up with the core idea for Transference after chatting to a psychotherapist,” says producer David Richardson. “I was fascinated by the specific rules and boundaries of the profession. For example, if a client reveals he has killed someone, does the psychotherapist have to report it to the police?”
This eight hour drama has a hugely impressive cast with Wendy Craig, Ingrid Oliver and Robert Whitelock amongst the credits. Directed by Ken Bentley, Transference is written by Jane Slavin, Roland Moore, Andrew Smith and John Dorney.
Alex Kingston told us more about why this very different Big Finish drama appeals to her: “It’s a process of trying to uncover the truth. From something visual on television to audio, this is a drama I want to listen to, to figure out what’s going on. Thrillers are something that draw the audience in. Everyone wants to be their own detective.”
Warren Brown adds: “People love to work out the twists, and are constantly second-guessing… it’s great when the rug is pulled out from underneath you! Thrillers are so appealing when written well, as this is. You never quite know what you’re going to get.”
