Episodes Bergerac: The Dig (BBC-1 8 Jan 1990, with Susan Wooldridge) Published 2 years ago on September 22, 2017 In The Dig a group of archealogical students and their teacher Carol are conducting an excavation on a clifftop. The land is owned by Charlie and is close to the building that Jim is moving into. On their first night camping, one of the female students is attacked – by a giant bird she claims. Then a second girl is attacked in broad daylight and then goes missing, later turning up dead. The Dig is one of the show’s occasional forays into the paranormal and a nicely spooky atmosphere is maintained throughout. Charlie seems particularly affected, he falls ill whilst helping Jim move and then again whilst some rather bizarre things (including a painting falling off a wall and the fire blazing of it’s own accord) are going on in his lounge room. It also, unlike most of the series other fantasy episodes, doesn’t pull back when it comes to a rational explanation – there isn’t one! The clifftop scenes of Jim being attacked by some kind of raven that only he can see (and ending up covered in scratch marks in the process) whilst a group of locals, who are attempting shut down the dig, beat the ground with their shovels is full on Nigel Kneale or Ghost Story for Christmas territory. The implication is that the bird is some kind of guardian to the Viking who is buried on the clifftop. The series seems much busier this season, mostly it feels because it’s been decided to give Lomas and Willy a bigger role to play in the action. We are even seeing scenes of the pair of them out on the town together. Jim is definitely being attacked by something…. production details UK / BBC One / 1×55 minute episode / Broadcast Sunday 28 January 1990 at 8.05pm Writer: John Collee / Director: Geoffrey Sax Series: Bergerac Season 8 Episode 3 cast John Nettles as Det Sgt Bergerac Susan Wooldridge as Carol George Sweeney as Martin Thomas Ian Michie as Lawrence Tushka Bergen as Alice Sukie Smith as Eleanor Akim Mogaji as Sam Terence Alexander as Charlie Hungerford John Telfer as Willy Pettit David Kershaw as Ben Lomas Trevor Cooper as Sorel Paul Hegarty as Doctor Anna Mottram as Charlotte Thomas Gordon Gostelow as Eli Thomas Sean Arnold as Barney Crozier Barbara Horne as Nurse BBCBergeracGeorge SweeneySusan WooldridgeTrevor CooperTV Advertisement advertisement and this just in TV13 hours ago Cutting It (BBC-1 2002-2005, Amanda Holden, Sarah Parish) Comedy drama series.
