Regarding "Casting the Runes":

Awesome Acting
When you're trying to scare people in sound, microphone technique is inevitably a sine qua non. Ciaran Hinds - already dead sexy in the flesh - (for those of you who have never forgotten Persuasion) is also possessed of a voice which modulates from the romantically charged to the downright demonic. In Casting of the Runes he plays both narrator and the evil Karswell who can't stand criticism. The closer he gets to the microphone the quicker you reach for the comfort blanket. As the series progresses his character gets darker and darker. As a listener you certainly won't want to spend any time with him alone. We even started avoiding him at lunch. I'm obviously not going to reveal the end of the series but suffice to say it involves two people, darkness and fear. And Ciaran manages to conjure your worst imaginings with worrying ease.
