Synopsis: Psychologist Nathan is faced with a disturbing and eerie case, a girl manifesting terrible voices belonging to the dead.
Review: In this new BBC drama Colin Morgan plays a psychologist who has moved to his grandmothers farm in order to get away from the hustle and bustle of his practice in London.
His peace is soon disturbed when the case of a young girl called Harriet reels its head and brings forth some rather disturbing happenings.
Despite the protests of his wife Nathan (Colin Morgan) becomes obsessed with getting to the bottom of what is disturbing Harriet.
When Harriet starts to channel the voice of a former criminal. Things take on a very disturbing turn as things around the farm begin to go horribly wrong.
This first episode of what is a six part series does a lot to introduce the characters and the relationship between Nathan and his wife.
The characters for the most part are really likeable, but don’t get to attached. The first episode sees two deaths. One of which is under mysterious circumstance.
The acting performances are really solid and it is helped with a wonderful Celtic music score, which does a lot of to help punctuate some of the more dramatic beats.
If you are a looking for an interesting ghost story, which also explores human psychology than I very much recommend that you try this series.
‘The Living And The Dead’ is available in full on BBC iPlayer. So there is very little excuse for not trying it out.
