Sea of Souls

on BBC1 9pm Saturday and Sunday. Starring Bill Paterson, Dawn Steele and Iain Robertson
There were clips all over BBC1 for this series and I thought it looked good and watched the first story last week. I loved it and was really surprised there’d been a previous series that I didn’t know about. If you haven’t seen it, it’s about a Clyde University department of parapsychology. A bit like The X-files, but British and with a smaller budget, and no sexual tension between the male and female central characters.
Anyway, the first one was all about a girl attracting a poltergeist drawn to the dark energies of a secret in her family. And running along-side that was a different story about a guy who disappeared from a high flat due to some sort of link with his grandfather. They were both made to seem very plausible and with plenty of drama and excitement, I was really pleased I watched it.
This weekend’s episodes weren’t quite as good. The Saturday one dragged and was boring. It picked up a bit on Sunday, but I was still a little disappointed. The plot involving a soldier who was plagued with visions of his death after receiving a curse from an old woman, was interesting, but all the nifty camera moves were too try-hard and didn’t work to build any suspense. The sub-plot with Justine investigating out of body experiences was dull as it didn’t go anywhere.
I will still definitely watch the last of the trilogy; I just hope it’s back to the standard of the first episodes.
