It’s no secret: we love Requiem. The new BBC’s spooky drama starring Lydia Wilson as an accomplished yet troubled cellist gave us the shivers with its tale of a toddler mysteriously vanishing over two decades ago.

- Requiem writer Kris Mrksa already wants to write a second series
- The spooky death – and future resurrection – of paranormal TV
It’s a story that unearths terrifying secrets in a remote Welsh community where supernatural elements begin to take hold.
And as many posted on Twitter, it was an impressively scary start to the drama. Even if some couldn’t watch it alone…
