Trivia

Lesley Sharp prepared for her role by watching real mediums give readings to audiences. In the first series, her character Alison 'talks' to spirits and looks at them slightly over her shoulder - this is a trait she picked up from the medium who technically advised on the show and integrated it into her performance.

Magnificent
13 September 2005 | by (Brisbane, Australia) – See all my reviews

This is really outstanding - one could perhaps compare it somewhat to "Medium" however it's darker and perhaps with a sadder tone; very well put together with superb, believable performances that you probably feel more than just see.

The characters reach out to you rather than just appear on the screen; it explores the notion of the "unwanted special gift" well and explore ridicule, disbelief and skepticism without falling for the normal clichés that we so often expect in this kind of feature.

The stories have original structure and the ongoing component is wholly necessary and not trivial; I was impressed.

The worst part is that there are only five episodes – fortunately I feel the ending was wide enough open to easily permit a 2nd season to come along, I really hope they do this as it has at least the promise that Medium has and perhaps a bit more in some ways.

Easily 5 stars out of 5 for me – if you get the chance to see it do so, very rewarding viewing.
