Product Description

Product Description

Robert Bridge is a psychology lecturer, grieving the loss of his young son Josh, who was killed in a car accident three years earlier. A specialist in the study of psychic mediums, Robert is invited to an 'evening of clairvoyance' where he meets Alison Mundy. Reluctant and cautious, she is a far cry from the fraudulent psychics that sceptic Robert is used to. Alison is different, ever since she was a child she has seen spirits and after a near-death experience they have taken over her life - when she passes people in the street she isn't sure if they are dead or alive, when she lies in bed at night she can't escape the voices that cry out to her. Driven by a compulsion to help those around her, Alison seeks to resolve relationships torn apart by death. When Alison's readings provoke an adverse reaction in one of Robert's own pupils, he begins to study her with the intention of writing about her work and the people she helps. But their association is thrown into crisis when Alison reveals she is touch with Robert's son.

What a discovery this show was! I missed it on TV, but picked up Disk 1 as a rental option and was so blown away I bought the whole series.

The concept is familiar to anyone who's watched the Patricia Arquette vehicle US show Medium. Lesley Sharp is the clairvoyant Alison Mundy who, like her American counterpart Allison DuBois, sees dead people. There the similarities end. Dubois juggles a family life and a career, but Alison Mundy is traumatised and isolated by her "gift", unable to hold down a job or a relationship and existing in a quirky limbo of kitsch seances and exploitative spiritualist meetings. In place of a husband, Alison forms an odd-couple relationship with parapsychology lecturer Dr Robert Bridge (Andrew Lincoln), who remains convinced that her ghosts have an explanation rooted in the unconscious. It is a strength of the show that, although we are privy to what Alison sees, the reality is left ambiguous: Alison is clearly troubled, obsessive and delusional in many ways and Robert's scepticism is an important theme in the show, going far beyond Dana Scully's token "there-must-be-a-scientific-explanation" rationalism.

The other aspect of "Afterlife" that trumps "Medium" is that Alison's ghosts are actually _scary_. They're not cute phantoms with a message for the living, but disturbed and disturbing forces that mirror that trauma and alienation of the central characters.

Each episode treats a particular haunting, usually with Alison being called in to help a client and Robert tagging along to question and criticise.

I caught part of this series on TV and recently rented series 1 and 2. I only wish there was a 3.
I had forgotten how good this series was. The main character is so disturbed by her gift at times and it's so well acted. It's unpredictable, refreshing, scary, and I recommend it highly. It's not like all the other clairvoyant/medium type series I've seen, it's darker and at times Alison seems quite insane. She clings to her sanity with a tenuous thread while being haunted by all these people she wishes would just leave her alone. They aren't all sweetness and light either.
This really is worth watching from beginning to end.

First of all, this is like no medium/ghost story you've seen before - this one is genuinely fantastic. From the moment I watched the first episode of series 1, on recommendation of a friend last year, I was hooked. I then watched the entire of the first series, and 2 episodes of series 2, in one sitting, only turning it off because I couldn't physically stare at the TV anymore. I finished off the series the next day. Then watched it all back to back again.

I'm usually a complete cynic of mediums, ghosts, spirits and the like. Whilst I'm fully aware this is fiction, there was something about this show that made me seriously think again. Lesley Sharp's perfect portrayl of Alison, combined with the stunning writing, direction and music, make it impossible not to be drawn in by it, and for it to make you question your entire judgements. Here is a woman, so perfectly crafted that she is 100% believable, haunted by her so-called gift. A woman driven mad by spirits she would do anything to be rid of - a far cry from the usual mediums we see in shows like this.

Then enter Robert Bridge who, by all accounts, should be Alison's arch enemy. A close-minded psychologist convinced that none of this is true. He immediately regards Alison as delusional, but sees potential in her for the perfect case study for a book. It's through following her life for material for said book however, that slowly but surely convinced Robert that all is perhaps not what it seems. The way in which Robert is slowly forced to question his judgement is not the least bit corny, or unrealistic. The seance which finally brings everything to a head in 1.6 is, quite simply, one of the finest pieces of television I think I've ever seen.

I bought this boxset a couple of years ago and somehow left it on the shelf unwatched until now... And little did I know what an absolute gem of a series I had purchased. I have just watched it and loved it.

At face value, it is easy to dismiss Afterlife's concept as yet another X-Files or Medium or any other supernatural series, right down to the partnership of sceptic and believer as main protagonists, and a different paranormal story per episode with an overreaching story arc.

But no. Afterlife is different. What sets it apart from the others, is the utter misery of it. It is gloriously miserable from start to finish. Everything from the tormented souls to the disturbed characters, right down to the scenery, which is gloomy and drab. There is a gritty, grubby realism about the whole thing, actually. Our heroine, Alison, is devoid of glamour; she is the wrong side of forty and lives in a grubby little end-of-terrace house in a drab housing estate. Physically and emotionally scarred from past tragedies, she is broke, yet chooses not to exploit her contact with the dead for cash. While depressed and disturbed, she is also a very likeable and kind lady.

Alison's counterpart is sceptic psychologist, Robert, who struggles with daily life on a houseboat while working as a university lecturer and coming to terms with the death of his young son. Robert, too, lacks the glitz and macho qualities of typical male heroes, instead being sensitive and subdued. His character is interesting because he is so conflicted: You can tell he desperately wants to believe in spirits on a personal level, yet professionally he refuses to accept spirituality at all.
