Chiller box set review creepy tales of phantom foetuses and ouija boards

30 October 2014 10:18 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Starring a young John Simm, Martin Clunes and Sophie Ward, ITVs answer to The X-Files is a reminder of a time when networks werent afraid of giving horror writers free rein

It opens explosively, with a pregnant woman suffering first a car crash and then a miscarriage. Somehow managing to put this behind her, the woman, played by Serena Gordon, moves into a new house with her husband, a youthful Martin Clunes. She then finds a mobile hanging in the nursery. Clunes is dismissive when Gordon asks how it could have got there, and when she demands to know why, while she was in her post-crash coma, he didnt dispose of the dead foetus properly, with a ceremony, burial and gravestone. What he did do with it is never made clear and that could be the problem. Gordon isnt satisfied: without closure, she cant mourn, and her restlessness manifests itself as a phantom pregnancy. »
