All the stories in Seasons 1, 2 and 4 were two hours long, shown as two one-hour episodes on consecutive days of successive weeks. Those in Season 3 were one hour long, one episode per story. See more »
The second series of Sea of Souls is riveting entertainment for a Saturday evening. Its content has changed slightly from the first series, with each episode now self contained. The stories are also much more entertaining and gripping. The comparison with the X Files is slight though. Whereas the X Files often had bizarre and fantastical stories about extraterrestrials, weird people and very strange events, Sea of Souls has more 'believable' characters, often ordinary members of the community. The X Files were too way out and ridiculous to be remotely believable.
This series also seems to concentrate on Justine's burgeoning talent and this is an exciting theme for this series. Definitely a series to watch.
