The Fades

Finally, the BBCA is running UK's version of their own horror story (not American Horror Story). Hopefully, there will not be an American version of it. Although, supernatural drama is on the rise, again. None the less, UK's sly humor and storytelling still makes it all the more intriguing.

STORYLINE: A teenage boy named Paul is haunted by apocalyptic dreams that nobody can explain. As if that weren't terrifying enough, he begins to see spirits of the dead, known as The Fades, all around him. The Fades can't be seen, smelt, heard or touched by other humans. When an embittered and vengeful Fade, Polus, finds a way to be human again, it's up to Paul to stop him - and all of the dead - from breaking back into the world and destroying the human race.

Sort of like Skins went supernatural.

It stars Lily Loveless who you might remember from SKINS. Iain De Caestecker stars as Paul.

Critics have found the stories well crafted and the acting sublime. Hopefully, we can savor the show just as it is. Hopefully, it will not be Americanized.

You’re never as odd as you think you are.

The director, Farren Blackburn did a Paranormal documentary series as well as a couple episodes of Waterloo Road.
