Rannoch Station, von den wenigen Besuchern nur ´´in the middle of nowhere´´ genannt, ist nicht mehr als ein heruntergekommener Bahnhof und eine Ansammlung von einigen Gehöften inmitten einer von Moor geprägten schottischen Landschaft. Für eine Weile soll der kleine Ort die einsame Bleibe von Sandra Wiener sein, die sich nach der Scheidung in Deutschland dem ihr nachstellenden Ex-Mann entziehen will. In der Hoffnung, gedanklichen Abstand von der gescheiterten Ehe zu bekommen, bezieht die junge Frau bei Familie White ein bescheidenes Gästezimmer. Doch schon bei ihrer ersten Unterredung mit Dan White, dem Besitzer des Hauses, beschleicht Sandra ein seltsames Gefühl. Angeblich ist White´s Ehefrau Tage zuvor ohne ein Wort des Abschieds gegangen und möglicherweise ein Opfer des ´´Shape shifters´´ geworden, welcher der Legende nach als wolfsähnlicher Dämon sein Unwesen im Moor treibt. Unsicher darüber, ob sie den anscheinend abergläubischen Ansichten ihres Vermieters Glauben schenken soll, begibt sich Sandra auf Spurensuche. Dabei begegnet sie einem bluttrinkenden Hund sowie einem Mann, welcher den Ausführungen der Dorfbewohner nach bereits seit Monaten tot ist...

When John Simpson hears of a bizarre animal attack in his old home town of High Moor, it stirs memories of a long forgotten horror. John knows the truth. A werewolf stalks the town once more, and on the night of the next full moon, the killing will begin again. He should know. He survived a werewolf attack in 1986, during the worst year of his life. It´s 1986 and the town is gripped in terror after the mutilated corpse of a young boy is found in the woods. When Sergeant Steven Wilkinson begins an investigation, with the help of a specialist hunter, he soon realises that this is no ordinary animal attack. Werewolves are real, and the trail of bodies is just beginning, with young John and his friends smack in the middle of it. Twenty years later, John returns to High Moor. The latest attack involved one of his childhood enemies, but there´s more going on than meets the eye. The consequences of his past actions, the reappearance of an old flame and a dying man who will either save or damn him, are the least of his problems. The night of the full moon is approaching and time is running out. But how can he hope to stop a werewolf, when every full moon he transforms into a bloodthirsty monster himself? 1.

The bleak expanse of Vangmoor was a dark, forbidding place. One victim had been found there, blonde, her face disfigured, her head shorn close to the scalp - killed without motive or mercy. Then a second woman went missing on the moor, and a sense of utter dread gripped the fifty local men who searched for her. Someone watched them in that treacherous place. Was he a killer? Or was he merely angry that a killer had usurped him? For he, and only he, was the Master of the Moor. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Bryant.

When Evangeline is sent to live in a small mill town in Northern England as a schoolteacher in 1871, she finds herself struggling to fit in with an unfamiliar culture. Raised with the high-class Victorian values and ideals of a sophisticated upbringing, she is unprepared for the poverty she finds in the gritty factory town of Smeatley, where the locals speak with a hard-to-understand Yorkshire accent and struggle to thrive with few resources or opportunities. Though she has no training as a teacher, she must prove herself successful before her grandfather will release her substantial inheritance to her and allow her to be reunited with her younger sister, the last remaining member of her family after a fever claimed the lives of her parents and brothers. Evangeline´s sudden change in circumstances is complicated when her aunt - a woman who values class distinctions more than her family relationships - forbids her from acknowledging any connection to her or to her grandfather, Mr. Farr - the man who owns nearly the entire town. For the first time in her life, Evangeline is truly alone. Heartbroken, she turns to the one person in town who has shown her kindness - an Irish brick mason, Dermot, and his son, Ronan. Despite the difference in their classes and backgrounds, Evangeline and Dermot become friends, due in part to her ability to connect with Ronan, whose behavior requires special attention. The boy is uncomfortable around strangers and rarely even speaks to the other children in town. He often fixates on details other people ignore, and he adheres to specific, self-made rules that give his life order and structure; for example, Dermot´s coat must be hung on a specific peg next to the door. Evangeline attempts to prove herself a worthy teacher and earn the respect of her hard-to-understand students. Determined to find a way to introduce them to ´´proper English´´ while still honoring their unique language and culture, she enlis... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Justine Eyre.
