The Sigmund Freud Files 01: The Second Face (Audio Drama Review)
Transplanting a historical figure into a new role always seems to be a roll of the dice these days. There’s never a definitive certainty that it might be good or just reasonable, and instead it seems to always be a sure-fire hit or an abject failure; see Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and 2012’s The Raven for examples of each. Sadly, while the idea might have been a promising one, the first outing of the Sigmund Freud Files is definitely a problematic launch for this new series, and certainly not a joy to listen to.
