Behind the facade of London's shiny dockside developments, its designer boutiques and coffee bars lie forgotten dark corners and darker secrets. It's a city where anything can happen and being young and pretty won't always save you. This cult smash hit follows scary stories and chilling episodes, from vampire documentaries to alien-infested supermarkets, from teenage necromancy to ghostly East End gangsters. In Urban Gothic, you'll find thirteen tales of the city to chill the blood. Written by

if you have never heard of urban gothic then i cant really blame you, channel 5 isn't exactly associated with high quality entertainment, or a good picture quality for that matter. its one of those little gems that you happen to catch one late drunken night while flicking through the channels. it has some top rate performances from little known/haven't had a job in a while actors and the scrpits contain some of the darkest humour around (the frog in the blender scene comes to mind)urban gothic has filled the gap that there seems to be in true horror TV (im not counting buffy etc as true horror) it is pure student television and some of the episodes are true genius. one of its main strengths though, is that each time you see it it gets better and develops new and even more twisted hidden meanings and social comments. if only it had the money of a primetime bbc show it could have been one of the best television shows around. however maybe the reason it is so special is because it is so hidden and unrestrained by ratings and strict corporate bosses. long live urban gothic, spread the word and lets all hope that it gets a third series.
