Trivia

Davina Taylor said that her sex scene on top of Primrose Hill was the most embarrassing acting job of her life. It was the middle of the night and she had to take all of her clothes off, while people nearby were walking their dogs and having a gawk. She said she ended up doing it there all night with all the tramps wandering about. See more »

Rough, but with a little polishing it could be beautiful..
22 April 2004 | by faisal_khanSee all my reviews

Urban Gothic is a little rough round the edges but an entertaining show nonetheless. As with all shows of this format, the quality of acting and scripts vary, though in this show's favour it's usually above average. As the series goes on, the shows show marked improvement as the dialogue becomes more natural and far less stilted.

There are germs of good ideas here, though only a few are developed sufficiently enough to raise this beyond the level of 'Hammer House Of Horror' to something approaching the class of 'Ultraviolet'. In particular, episodes such as 'Old Nick' and the astonishing 'Boy's Club' break free of the usual formula to show us that horror and evil aren't just about blood and gore. True horror is corruption of the soul, of the heart, and in these two episodes we get to see a darker side of the City that will linger uncomfortably long after the TV set has been turned off.
