Review: BBC does it again with this horror themed TV mini-series. Remember Me tells the story of Tom Parfitt (Michael Palin). A widower who is about to move into a nursing home to live out the remainder of his days, However, there is a sinister ghost at work who is intent on keeping him alive to “take care of him”.
In this 3 part mini-series, we meet Hannah Ward (Jodie Comer), who plays the role of a nurse, who becomes obsessed with Tom’s obsession of the variations of the song “Scarborough Fair“. Mark Addy (Atlantis) plays the role of Rob Fairholme, the detective who assigns himself to discovering the truth about Tom.
I wont spoil the story here and give you any spoilers, but I will say that there are some influences here from The Ring and The Grudge. But told with a difference.
The scenery is amazing in this series. Creepy, gloomy, but perfect for this type of film. If you liked The Ring and The Grudge, then this series by BBC is a must watch.
Verdict: Will you go to Scarborough Fair?
My Rating: 9.5 out of 10
