When children across Washington, D.C., all start talking with the same imaginary friend named Drill, who persuades them to play dangerous games, the FBI calls in child specialist Claire Bennigan - whose deaf son has been speaking to Drill, unbeknownst to her - to investigate. Meanwhile, the defense department sends Wes Lawrence to the Sahara Desert, where he encounters a strange geological phenomenon. As puzzle pieces come together, creating a frightening picture, humanity must wage a battle against unseen forces if it hopes to survive. Written by Soumik Ghosh

Season 2 of "The Whispers" was up in the air for a long while. Not knowing if a season 2 would happen, the writers made an ending to season 1 that provides a conclusion, but leaves it open for another season if it were to happen. This show has since been cancelled. See more »

User Reviews

 
Great show, although it starts off a little slow.
30 June 2015 | by sharcsSee all my reviews

I, like a lot of the reviewers, didn't think much of the show when it first began. The first couple of episodes were quite confusing and left the impression that this was going to be one of those dull shows with sluggish plots that take ten episodes to tell a story that could have been told in three - I was wrong.

After the first few episodes the show eventually began to open up and everything started to make sense. The show goes from a confusing series of unrelated events into one big brilliant interwoven plot that leaves you wanting more. Although a lot of what's going on remains a mystery, there is enough progress being made by the characters to keep you interested and entertained.

I see this show really making it big if it stays on it's current path. Definitely one of my favourites this year.

I advise anyone out there to give it at least 4 episodes before writing it off, you won't regret it.
