Publisher's Summary

A Warhammer Horror audio drama.

On a world cut off from the Imperium, towering spires are lashed by endless rain. As citizens flee from the drowning city, a sadistic Imperial interrogator seeks a lowly data-drone with a terrible secret. But when disaster strikes, the pair must rely on each other for survival as the Watcher in the Rain awaits them.

Listen to it because: Hear a world in peril, with a magnificent soundscape acting as the backdrop to a thoroughly frightening tale of two enemies forced to work together against a darkness that will consume them both.

The story: In the far reaches of Imperial space, a ferocious warp storm approaches an Administratum world, cutting off the entire planet from the rest of the Imperium. As their towering grey spires are punished by endless rain, countless administrators, tithe-masters, and book-keepers are forced to evacuate. Among them is Greta, a lowly data-drone with a terrible secret, wanted for questioning by the sadistic Imperial interrogator Stefan Crucius. As disaster strikes and the pair are left stranded in the depths of the drowning city, captor and captive must cooperate to stand any chance of escaping. But a mysterious presence stalks them through the abandoned, flooded towers, a dread entity each must confront but which neither dare acknowledge, a Watcher in the Rain.

Written by Alec Worley. Running time 74 minutes. Performed by Matthew Hunt, Deeivya Meir, Melvin Rawlinson and Richard Reed.

This is proper horror!

I feel I just had to write a review on this little gem of an audio drama. The story, the voice acting, the effects. All excellent. What I admired most was how tight it all was, nothing unnecessary but still didn't feel like anything was missing out. It also had many elements very specific to the Warhammer 40.000 universe, so in other words the story couldn't easily if at all exists in any other setting. Very depressing story though so if you can't stomach those, then look elsewhere.

Good Horror Story

Loved this audio drama. Dark and dire! The voice casting, sound effects, and music all contributed to a great listening experience. The Watcher in the Rain is a great addition to the Warhammer saga as well as a chilling tale.

Absolutely wonderful

While the beginning is a little slow, the finale is wonderful! I wish it could have been a little longer to focus on the “Watcher” some more.
Can’t wait for the next book by Worley!

Overall, pretty good.

By'n large this story is good.

SPOILERS

The Interrogator seemed a bit weak near the end but I guess that's what happens when you have a brief encounter with a daemon.

I laughed out loud at the twist at the end.

Decent if not predictable

Fun story, well acted and the sound design was amazing. Not very surprising and a bit cliché but fine for a quick listen.

well performed

a little stilted sometimes (people talking to themselves to explain to the reader what's happening), but some really cool moments as well.
