Publisher's Summary

Michael Gough, Garrick Hagon and Bob Sessions star in this thrilling radio drama featuring the Batman.

‘This is the Batman. Treat what you are about to hear in the strictest confidence - my associates must be protected at all costs. By night in Gotham City you knew me as the Batman. What you never knew was....’

The Batman is dead. Police Commissioner Gordon has received a recording by the Batman that reveals his real identity. But who is the occupant of Wayne Manor? It soon becomes a desperate journey into the background of Gotham City’s famous vigilante to find out who killed the Dark Knight.

This fantastic full-cast adventure stars Michael Gough as Alfred, Garrick Hagon as Bruce Wayne, Kerry Shale as Dick Grayson, Lorelei King as Selina Kyle, and Bob Sessions as The Batman, and it comes from the renowned producer Dirk Maggs, of Superman and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy radio fame.

This stunning audio production was first broadcast on BBC Radio 4, and this all-action adventure can now be heard remastered - complete with dazzling sound effects.

Nice dramatization of a Batman story

We listened to this in the car for a short trip and overall liked this dramatization that seems to have taken place in the 80s because there are dictaphones and cassettes mentioned. We also noticed that this would be a good listen for someone not that familiar with the Batman, as there is a of review and flashbacks, explaining his origin, why Barbara Gorden is in a chair, etc. Yet there is not so much review that it is dull to the Batman fan. My problem was I couldn't figure out why Harvey Dent sounded like an idiot, when I realized the character was supposed to be Harvey Bullock. I also took issue with the Joker's voice. I should also note that the actor for the Batman character does not give his character the graveli-ness we've come accustomed to with the Batman films, another hint as to the age of this dramatization.

Batman: The Lazarus Syndrome

True to the Batman spirit. A must for Batman fans! I wish it was longer, but it was truly fun.

The Catwoman was cool

very cool narrative; feels like film noir,
the crime alley scene at the end could have been a bit more interesting but didn't compromise the narrative as a whole.

The production on this is surprisingly fantastic.

It's got your favorite character from the Bat-verse (Nightwing, Jason Todd, Batgirl, Catwoman, and more), ND the production is great. do yourself a favor and download this. It'll surprise you.

also, the voice-cast is great as well.

Excellent entertainment and use of the medium

An excellent review of the history of The Batman with a nice mystery attached. I already know the story along with everyone else but the mystery kept me interested and it is short enough that I never found myself noticing most of the story has already been told

Great short story

I only wish this story had been longer than 45 minutes to help those unfamiliar with the Killing Joke and Death in the Family to get more back story on the references in the book.

A little short, but sweet

Not one of the longest or best Batman stories, but this is one of the wonderful BBC productions and they are always well done.
