Intoxicating and delicious thrills akin to the seminal Ghostwatch!
I felt that Ian imbued the role with just the right balance of earnest conviction and charlatanic cynicism making Eddie a thoroughly watchable and realistic protagonist. The slow but sure exposure of foibles and personal demons added great colour to the character.
I'm just amazed that TV companies did not pick this up as I think the whole concept of Eddie and his research - especially his intellectualising of sometimes indubitable and intangible theory - makes for such a wonderful watch.
With the flawed and fragile human condition at the centre of the piece, the ghost second, it provides the necessary connection that engages the audience.
I thought Andrew Spencer's writing and direction marvellous and what immediately came to mind was the intoxicating, delicious thrills of the seminal Ghostwatch. I completely understand why Stephen Volk would be a fan!
Above all, I thought the way Ian portrayed the character incredibly enlightening and entertaining and, most importantly, it left me wanting to know much more about the demons that drive Eddie.
Tell me, will there be another episode in the world of Eddie Brewer?
