Davina Taylor said that her sex scene on top of Primrose Hill was the most embarrassing acting job of her life. It was the middle of the night and she had to take all of her clothes off, while people nearby were walking their dogs and having a gawk. She said she ended up doing it there all night with all the tramps wandering about. See more »

Am I the only viewer?
5 April 2002 | by See all my reviews

Most of the Urban Gothic episodes have been great. They really do make a nice change for horror fans as it is the only horror series I can think of that caters for their needs. So what I would like to know is why is it that I am the only one that thinks so? The series is given hardly any recognition. This surprises me greatly as many well known British faces have appeared in both series, such as Ray Burdis, Leslie Grantham, Lindsey Coulson, Richard O'Brien and Sean Maguire. The first series contains 13 half hour episodes. The first is 'Dead Meat' which shows the story of for friends bringing a corpse back to life. The second is 'Vampirology' which is a mock documentary in the life of a vampire (and in my opinion the best episode of the series, brilliant acting!) The third is 'Old Nick' which is the story of a murderous boy who thinks he's discovered the devil. The fourth is 'Lacuna' (another excellent episode) which is about two friends trying to steal drugs from a mental institute but are caught and believed to be patients. The fifth is 'Deptford Voodoo' which is basically about voodoo (and is probably the worst episode in the series). The sixth is 'Sum of The Parts' which is a story about 'evil' organs being transplanted into patients (another of the worse ones). The seventh is 'The One Where...' which is about a group of friends that have their desires fulfilled. The eighth is 'Cry Wolf' which is about a woman who falls in love with a 'werewolf'. The ninth is 'Be Movie' which is the story of a group of students who find themselves trapped in a horror movie, which has only one survivor. The tenth is 'Boys Club' which shows the story of Lenny Scratch, a man with such a desire to be accepted as a hard guy he finds himself sacrificing his father. The eleventh is 'Pineapple Chunks' which is the story of pineapple-fuelled aliens, amazingly naff, but quite funny. The twelfth is 'Turn On' which is about a robot who thinks that she's a woman. The last episode is 'Thirteen' which is about a journalist who is searching for a story, and finds his ultimate tale. Urban Gothic is definitely worth watching!
