Doctor Who Vs. Afterlife, Series 1

Produced by Clerkenwell Films, a repeat run of this supernatural drama series continued on ITV3 last night. The programme was created by horror writer Stephen Volk, and ran for two seasons in 2005 and 2006. Scottish film actor John Hannah was the executive producer on the first and final installments here.
Liverpool-born Lesley Sharpe won the RTS Best Actress award and a Golden Nymph prize for her role as psychic believer Alison Mundy. Her co-star Andrew Lincoln played sceptic academic, Dr. Robert Bridge, and together they investigated paranormal cases in Bristol.
