TV Shows - Garth Marenghi's Darkplace

The comedy series, released in 2004, lampoons 1980s television drama,[3] particularly horror, scifi, and "the rampant egotism of selfappointed 'mastermind' authors." The show presents Garth Marenghi's Darkplace as though it were a real, low budget television series, produced in the 1980s, and now getting its first screening; this hoax is the basis of the show's fictional frame. Darkplace's fictional show within a show includes deliberately poor production and special effects, subpar acting, and storylines that are "severely flawed and openended",this is interspersed with 'present day interviews' with the 'cast'. The series' fictional premise is that some time in the 1980s, best selling horror author Garth Marenghi and his publisher/publicist, Dean Learner, made their own low budget television series with a single intent: "to change the evolutionary course of Man over a series of half hour episodes." Set in Darkplace Hospital, "over the very gates of Hell," in Romford, East London,[4] Garth Marenghi's Darkplace shows the adventures of Dr. Rick Dagless, M.D., as he "fights the forces of darkness while simultaneously coping with the pressures of day to day admin." Within this fictional context, Marenghi wrote 63 teleplays from which 50 shows were produced.
