Really rather engrossing television
17 February 2005 | by (Glasgow, Scotland) – See all my reviews

You could bill it crudely as a 'Scottish X Files' and while your case would have merit, you would be missing the point entirely.

Starring fairly well known Scottish actors Bill Paterson, Dawn Steele and Iain Robertson, Sea of Souls is set almost entirely in Glasgow within a fictional university called Clyde University. The series centres on a 'parapsychology' department, and the various cases of supernatural goings on or otherwise bizarre happenings the academics there receive to investigate.

Obviously this has strong overtones of X Files but the show is a touch more believable, frankly.

The main 3 characters are Douglas (Paterson), the head of the department, Justine, the relatively new recruit and slightly Mulder-esque in her approach, and Craig, the Scully, hard grounded in science.

The stories are always rich and varied, and the acting is surprisingly decent for a Scottish-made show. The characters are pretty stereotypical though, but their originality isn't really needed for this, because it's the plots which hold the show up.

With interesting direction, fascinating narrative and a surprising amount of believability, Sea of Souls is a very well conceived show which never fails to engage for the duration.

Highly recommended.
