Storyline

Plugging nicely into the RPG world of Delta Green, Rough Magik is about The Night Scholars, a clandestine organization setup to monitor the ancient cult of Cthulhu. After decades of compiling an enormous database of arcane information, they have come to a single, incontrovertible conclusion: the Sleeping God is waking. Diana Armitage, with the help of her Home Office liaison, the mysterious Mr. Moon, launch an aggressive campaign against the Dreamers. This operation, designated the Rough Magik initiative, was successful but they trod on the toes of some powerful people, amidst accusations of financial impropriety and possible treason, and the Night Scholars were disbanded. Now years later, the old magic is returning, the Sleeping God is rising, and there are more Dreamers than Mr. Moon can handle as he struggles to rebuild the Night Scholars before its too late.

HP Lovecraft Meets Wild Bill Donovan
20 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film was intended to be the pilot for a BBC series. The included plot synopses are intriguing and suggest a show that would have slowly built in suspense, character and tension. Had it followed the lead of the excellent Ultraviolet, it would've been one for the ages.

Paul Darrow (Blake's 7) seems an inspired choice to lead the fight against an apocalypse that cannot be averted, only postponed. The opening and closing scenes hit all the right notes and left me hungry for the real meat of the series - a covert government power confronting a deadlier and more implacable power.

The day-for-night shooting of the Falkland scenes made me wish they'd been less ambitious and stuck to the corrupt manor houses that British TV has been using since the days of Department S and The Avengers. And the title's twee spelling of "Magik" seems a terrible mistake for a series so clearly based based upon the works of HP Lovecraft and MI5...
