Doctor Who Vs. The Fades

This cult series was created and written by Jack Thorne,
and first aired on BBC Three and BBC HD in the autumn
of 2011, then on BBC America in January 2012. 
The series was not recommissioned for a second run 
despite winning the BAFTA Best Drama award.
The six-part supernatural thriller is now available on BBC 
Three's online service, following the closure of the parent 
TV channel last night.
The programme centred on teenager Paul Roberts (played by Iain De Caestecker) who is haunted by apocalyptic 
dreams - he sees dead people, known as Fades. These 
spirits cannot be sensed by other humans, and are the 
remnants of the dead who have not been accepted into 
the afterlife.
