Joyfully, we are removed from reality to 19th-century Somerset, where supernatural doings and malevolent spirits abound
The first episode of the new six-part drama The Living and the Dead (BBC1) opened in a Somerset vicarage, in 1894 and I was already sold. “Anywhere but the here and now, my loves,” I whispered at the screen. “Anywhere but here and now.”
Soon, joyfully, we were even further removed from reality. Partly by the ethereal beauty of Colin Morgan – off whose cheekbones the entire production hangs – as Nathan Appleby, a pioneering psychologist returned from London to the family pile to make A Go of Things after the death of his mother, and partly because supernatural doings are afoot. Sixteen-year-old Harriet has started hearing voices and feeding ducklings to pigs. Is she about to get her first period? Is she haunted? Or is her psychic upheaval emblematic of the industrial changes about to sweep through bucolic England? »
