To celebrate Audible’s new release X-Files: Cold Case we were invited to an immersive experience at the London Postal Museum. Sadly I was unable to attend, but we sent our X-Files fanatic friend Adri along for the experience.
Adri came face to face with her childhood nightmares last night, after witnessing a staged monstrous autopsy in the subterranean lair of the newly opened Postal Museum.
X-Files: Cold Cases is a new audio drama which sees David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson returning to voice FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully.
Tasked with cracking a case from a never-before-released X-Files archive, guests had to solve the mystery of the terrifying creature Flukeman’s escape. Guided by excerpts from the gripping new audio drama, the immersive experience brought to life Mulder and Scully’s world as attendees used their senses and intuition to progress through a series of rooms in the unnerving post office tunnels.
X-Files: Cold Cases takes place after the events of X-Files: I Want to Believe. An original full cast dramatisation, the story tells of Mulder and Scully coming out of anonymity to face a growing conspiracy that involves not only their former department but the US government and forces not of this world. This gripping production will surely get generations old and new looking to the sky.
To help uncover the hidden truth behind X-Files, Audible also worked with former Ministry Of Defence UFO expert Nick Pope. A self-confessed ‘real life Fox Mulder’, Pope researched and investigated UFOs, alien abductions, crop circles and other strange phenomena to determine their defence significance for the Ministry from 1991 to 1994.
Speaking at The Investigation Bureau event, Nick Pope said: “Having been lucky enough to work on the real-life X-Files at the Ministry of Defence, there are some spooky parallels with the fictional world in which Mulder and Scully are involved in. Recently the National Archives released some files from the now-disbanded UFO project, detailing once highly classified documents covering UFO sightings, alien abductions, crop circle appearances, animal mutilations and even a government project to try to recruit psychics! It’s these parallels between fact and fiction that show why The X-Files is still as relevant as ever.”
After all, the truth is out there. You just have to listen…
