A little more info on the BBC’s Requiem which I mentioned earlier.
Requiem isn’t quite like anything else on TV at the moment.
Show writer Kris Mrksa said his lifelong passion for scary movies like Don’t Look Now and Rosemary’s Baby were the inspiration for this psychological, complex and sophisticated chiller.
Lydia Wilson is incredible as the show’s lead, enigmatic musician Matilda Gray, who is suddenly drawn to the Welsh village of Penllynith following the shock death of her mother.
After witnessing her mum kill herself, Lydia suddenly finds her world turned upside down as her real identity and past are suddenly shrouded in mystery.
A collection of her mum’s cuttings about missing child Carys Howell sends her on the hunt for answers in Wales, but there are only more mysteries in the Valleys – another surprising suicide, just one day before her mum's, and a terrifying old mansion that makes the nearest Premier Inn sound like a much more sensible option.
The supernatural element might not be to everyone’s tastes at 9pm on a Friday night, but Requiem looks set to be a must-watch series for anyone brave enough to come out from behind the sofa.
