Spooky turns to sinister as science and the supernatural collide
All is not as it should be in Milbury, a sleepy English village surrounded by a megalithic stone circle. Astrophysicist Adam Brake (Gareth Thomas, Blake’s 7) and his teenage son, Matthew, arrive to research the standing stones, but end up delving into the past in ways they never expected. What are the secrets of the ancient stones? What power does the druid-inspired Rafael Hendrick (Iain Cuthbertson, Gorillas in the Mist) have over the village’s trancelike "happy ones"? And is it true that "nobody ever leaves the circle"?
An air of menace pervades this sci-fi thriller, enhanced by a haunting, chanted vocal score. Filmed on location at the Avebury stone circle--older than nearby Stonehenge--each episode builds relentlessly to a harrowing climax in what becomes, literally, a race against time. Seen on Nickelodeon’s paranormal anthology program The Third Eye, this eerie British series will also scare adults.
DVD SPECIAL FEATURES INCLUDE interviews with star Gareth Thomas and producer/director Peter Graham Scott, production notes, series trivia, and photo gallery.
