Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace

Cancelled after just one series, this six-episode mini-season was co-created by British comedy geniuses Matthew Holness and Richard Ayoade, who also directs. With an all-star UK comedy cast including Richard Ayoade, Matt Berry, Matthew Holness, Alice Lowe, Julian Barratt, Noel Fielding and Stephen Merchant, the BAFTA-nominated show is sharp, funny and enjoyably ridiculous. Co-produced by Channel 4.





Garth Marenghi (Matthew Holness) is a fictional horror author who makes a horror-drama TV show with his manager Dean (Richard Ayoade). With poor production values, questionable dialogue and laughable violence, the series is set at Darkplace Hospital in Romford, with Dr. Dagless (played by Garth) trying to solve supernatural mysteries.
