Dredge Runners clocks in at the lower end of 1-CD audio dramas. For comparison, the first Warhammer Horror audio, Perdition's Flame was 20 minutes longer - a third of Dredge Runners' runtime on top. The Watcher in the Rain had 15 minutes on top, about the same as Rachel Harrison's The Way Out. Both Perdition's Flame and The Watcher in the Rain were also written by Alec Worley.
I wonder if the acting just resulted in a denser production or if the script itself was noticeably shorter this time.
Bloodlines on the other hand is a trick longer than most Warhammer Horror novels, by about 30-60 minutes on average. The exceptions being The Wicked and the Damned as well as Dark Harvest - which was about standard full novel length, compared to WHH's generally shorter pagecounts. But again, the pace of the narrator contributes a lot to the runtime, so take it with a grain of salt.
Charles Armstrong, by the by, I don't believe has any other BL credits to his name than a role in the Ragnar audio box set. BL is continuing to rope in "new" narrators from the wider industry with this imprint, it would appear.
