Garth Marenghi's Darkplace – Episode 01 – Once Upon A Beginning

Episode 01 : New doctor Liz Asher arrives at Darkplace Hospital, where a mysterious cat portends disaster. Dr. Rick Dagless, M.D., must act in time to prevent unspeakable evil from leaking out from a portal to Hellmouth under Darkplace Hospital. Guest starring Julian Barratt.

Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace is a British dark comedy show made for Channel 4 by Matthew Holness and Richard Ayoade. Darkplace is presented as a lost classic: a television series produced in the 1980s, though never broadcast at the time. The show parodies numerous aspects of ’80s low-budget television, including fashion, special effects, production gaffs, and music.

No copyright infringement intended. All copyright remains under Channel 4. I do not own this show at all. This is the wonderful work of writers and creators Matthew Holness and Richard Ayoade.

  1. Most people are sad that this show got cancelled. I'm just happy that something so creative and unusual was greenlit at all. It probably helped that the budget was likely not very high, but still, 9 times out of 10, a show like Darkplace would never have even been considered.
