Into The Unknown was the umbrella title of a series of short stories published online by the BBC in early 2021 leading up to the release of The Lonely Assassins. Each was formatted as a blog post on a blog of the same name, purported to be written by characters such as Larry Nightingale, relating supernatural events in which they had been involved. Due to the in-universe framing device, none of the stories were credited.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- Various elements of the blog changed subtly over time leading up to the release of The Lonely Assassins.
- The thumbnail images turned distorted and pixellated.
- The banner title changed from "Into the Unknown" to "Angels Are Coming".
- At the top of the blog, a line of disguised text sometimes appeared. Initially it read "Angels are coming" in binary code, then the same in decimal code, and finally "It's right in front of your eyes" in binary code.
