Some call him a dreamweaver (true). Some call him a best selling novelist (scientific fact). Some call him Rick Dagless M.D., a maverick doctor battling against the evil forces lurking in a standard-sized hellmouth underneath a hospital in pre-apocalyptic Romford. That one may be a lie. Let's put aside what people may think of 80's sex icon Marenghi. Instead, what about his work, you may ask? Well, Garth describes it as 'too subversive, too dangerous [and] too damn scary'. Whatever people may say is neither here nor Norwich, but …Darkplace, filmed in the 'actual' 80's in Romford, (house prices rocketed after filming) can be described in one word: a work of undeniable genius.
