Trivia

Two weeks were spent at BBC Ealing Film Studios. The first week was devoted to all the scenes in the Eldritch lair and the second week for the Behemoth chamber. Some scenes in the Behemoth underground tunnels were actually recorded in the Robert Haining secondary school used for the school location, especially the large concrete steps Marcie and Thomas walk down, which later flood.

User Reviews

High concept, low budget - both typical of its predecessors and ahead of its time
30 August 1999 | by (London, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After having seen Dark Season for the first time now in mid-1999, it's amazing just how relevant it seems. Made for children's TV, it looks more like story from "Doctor Who" without the eponymous hero, and deals with neo-Nazis, mind control and millennial angst in quite a humourous way.

The six episodes are split into two three-part stories, a device which further provides comparisons with Doctor Who. It's not altogether successful

  • the two stories would have worked better as a whole (they are connected,


but the events of 1-3 are all but forgotten in episode 4 onwards).

Spirited performances from Jacqueline Pearce and Brigit Forsyth (in a criminally underwritten role - one that seems designed for an actress about twenty years older) help to detract from some of the less than convincing child actors on display. Still, it's an interesting chance to watch a pre-Titanic Kate Winslet in a spirited supporting role as the red-haired rebel, Reet.
