Video Hits Saturday: Gareth Marenghi's Darkplace

In the 1980s, author, dream weaver, visionary, plus actor Gareth Marenghi created a TV so mind-blowing, so radical, so frightening, so ahead of time that the network cancelled it after only a short run in Bristol.

Now, due to the worst artistic drought in broadcast history the network has come crawling back on its knees and the tapes were retrieved from the vault located in Gareth Marenghi’s spacious basement. Even today they dare only show six of the over fifty episodes produced. Come now with me on a trip straight through the bowels of hell where we will then enter … Gareth Marenghi’s Darkplace.

The collective works of Gareth Marenghi, Dr. Ronald Chevalier and Time Desk Saga: The Chronicles of Dean Dangerous are my absolute favorite works of fictitious fiction.
