Seriously the best tv I've seen in a l-o-n-g time. Speaking as an agnostic, I find intelligent and in-depth religious dramas fascinating and thought-provoking. This ticks all the boxes and the acting is superb. Effects are good, but not recommended for anyone of a nervous disposition - the horror can be very gory, even when only 'implied' (and off-screen).
Bloody marvellous stuff - It's about time the BBC put out more quality drama like this.

Approaching this as one who is seeking ordination to the Episcopalian Priesthood I was interested for 3 factors.

1: It combined my interest in faith and the trials it under goes.

2: It was helmed by Joe Ahearne who is possibly the best science-fiction & horror director working in the U.K. at the moment.

I was not disappointed in the slightest. Tight drama, superb and believable performances, and amazing scripts to boot. As a fictional drama it excelled, I was excited, appalled by the villains and more than once found my self yelling in victory when Father Jacob triumphed.

As a production the standards were excellent, it all was well researched and never once gave off the impression it was cheaply made. The sets and props were of the highest order.

It doesn't shy away from the issues of faith and in fact discusses them with much clarity without resorting to hysteria. There is much there to consider and I believe it could form the basis of several discussion groups.

All in all it is an excellent series and I look forward to the DVD release with great anticipation

I bought this as a complete gamble as I like Martin Shaw and the BBC usually makes a good fist of all TV drama, even if, as in this case maybe, their budget for special effects is somewhat limited in comparison to the movies. What it lacks in fizz-bang effects, I think it makes up for with good old-fashioned acting. Shaw is pretty convincing as a Catholic priest and exorcist caught betwen 21st century public scepticism of demons and their works, and antagonism from his own Church. I can recommend this if you like real acting and interesting ideas about the occult.

As someone who has studied this subject from an ISLAMIC POINT OF VIEW, I found this program surprisingly accurate SOMETIMES, according to what some Muslim "Exorcists" have encountered, though there are differences in theological points of view of what one is dealing with and how to deal with it. Beautifully filmed (the seminary is actually now the British Muslim Heritage centre in Manchester, and I happened to visit it one day while they were filming) well acted, MARTIN SHAW IS BRILLIANT IN THIS. So far this has been great. My only quibble with it is the last episode although well written could have shown more accurately how Muslim 'exorcists' deal with this issue. Very wishy washy in that respect, The 'Imam' did nothing right in dealing with the problem and some of the things he said were incorrect according to Muslim theology. I thought though that it was good to show the respect between the Christian and Muslim men, and this is needed more to bring our communities together.
It is also good that a well made programme like this has come out amidst the utter tripe and dangerous nonsense programmes that glorify the occult such as The Charmed et al. This definately doesn't so far. I don't believe anyone should be offended with this from a religious point of view, if anything, some of the lines can be taken to be quite inspiring for people of all faiths, and particularly scenes showing Father Jacob's unswerving faith were quite moving. Although I don't know what the next episodes are going to be like, so far so good. (Episodes 1,2 and 5 the best so far).

As a Martin Shaw fan in the US, I'd heard of this show from friends in the UK. I was not disappointed. Martin Shaw gives an excellent performance as Father Jacob--his voice is absolutely amazing and perfect for this character. His talents give Father Jacob great depth and help to create a very interesting and unique character. It sure doesn't hurt that he's very easy on the eyes and looks marvelous.

His supporting cast is also wonderful and very talented. All give excellent performances despite some rather stereotypical treatment of them by some of the writers. The special effects were nicely done, quite gory and very believable, so one can't be squeamish watching this series. I am very glad I purchased this and wish fervently there could be many more seasons of this unique and thought provoking series.

The only problem I had with the series is the way non-believers are portrayed. They are written as actively hostile to and deeply hateful of religion, which came across as almost cartoon-like. Non-believers that I know honestly don't care one way or another. Overall, an excellent effort and the actors and writers are to be commended. I wish there was this kind of quality work being done in the US.

I loved Apparitions when I saw it on TV and enjoyed it even more when I watched the DVD as I didn't have to wait a week between episodes. How nice to see a Catholic priest who actually keeps his vows and believes in his faith - it's quite a change from the usual offerings on TV. It does wander around the borders of the occult and I did find a couple of bits somewhat dubious, eg. the black mass scene (as I am a Catholic) but overall, good triumphs over evil and it's an entertaining yarn. If you enjoy programmes with a supernatural theme, you should like this.
