In an interview for Sky, Christina Cole said she was a bit startled by her nude shower scene in episode two. Although the scene was shot nude, her back was to the camera most of the time and she believed she was being shot from the shoulders up. Apparently members of her family were not amused. See more »
So, what are you doing here?
Actually my father used to own this place?
I died here in 1923. I'd like to say my husband caught me with the scullery maid, but actually it was the flu. How about you?
I was ritualistically sacrificed by a fallen angel.
Ah, the flu, too, eh?

After seeing the first episode I wasn't sure whether to continue watching. Other than Thelma, the acting was pretty weak. However, hang in there as Christina Cole (Cassie) finds her feet and Azazeal is extremely cool.
This one is much raunchier and less moralistic than most American TV shows. I loved Buffy too, but it was always trying to tell us how to the right thing and everyone did a lot of unnecessary suffering. In Hex the heroin sometimes takes the low (moral) road which enables some interesting character and plot developments. Lets face it, girls are often attracted to some pretty destructive men - the girls often see their more vulnerable side - Azazeal plays this sweet badboy perfectly.
This is not a visual show (although, as someone noted the countryside is pretty). The special effects are almost non-existent. It is a psychological thriller and the characters and music make it scary.
Hex actually has elements from a number of genres, not least of which is some black comedy (which Brit's excel at). Thelma is fabulous!
