The Ghost Train
At a little-used and remote railway station in the middle of a dark, cold and windy Dartmoor, six people are stranded for the night – the result of the actions of one of their number, a clownish oaf.
The stationmaster advises them to leave and tells them of the ‘ghost train’ that haunts the station and is expected this very night. They’re not safe if they stay. With no taxis and the nearest hotel five miles away, they have little option but to spend the night in the station’s gloomy booking hall, and take their chances with the ghostly train.
Blackadder Goes Forth
Blackadder Goes Forth is the last series, the best written and best known. There are six episodes set in World War I and we will be choosing four of them.
The situation comedy is ridiculous, the dialogue outstanding, and the characters overdrawn and challenging.
Twelve years after his daughter Julia’s death from a drug overdose, her father Joe still struggles to understand what happened to make his nineteen-year-old daughter, a musical genius, take her own life. Joe has preserved the attic bedroom where she died, but mysterious things have been happening in and around the bedroom and Joe is convinced that Julia is trying to contact him.
Joe has never fully come to terms with Julia’s death. Was it suicide? Was someone with Julia that night? Why would a girl genius want to take her own life? Joe arranges a meeting in the bedroom with a Psychic, and Julia’s former boyfriend. He is searching for answers and is hoping this meeting will help him find them. The three men meet, and the story of Julia’s life and death is gradually revealed. Will Joe find the answers he is looking for, or are some questions better left unanswered?
