The third play of four in ‘Pilgrim Series 2’, a collection of BBC Radio 4 modern-day fantasy adventures written by Sebastian Baczkiewicz and starring Paul Hilton as Pilgrim. The Lady in the Lake was originally broadcast in the ‘Afternoon Play’ slot on 14 September 2010.
What if all the myths and folktales of these islands were true? And what if they were not only true but present now in our world? All the spirits, existing, as they have always existed, in the gaps between tower blocks, in the shadows under bridges, in the corner of our vision. An ancient and eternal world which has existed alongside ours since time immemorial and will exist long after we have gone.
Enter Pilgrim... In 1185 William Palmer was making pilgrimage to Canterbury. Unbeknownst to him his fellow pilgrim was the Lord of Faerie. When William claimed that the Church would wipe out the belief in the Faerie world, he was cursed by the Faerie Lord and condemned forever to walk between our world and theirs. In search of runaway ward, Freya, Pilgrim goes to Hollisale Well in this episode and discovers a small community dedicated to the memory of a woman lured into the water seven years ago by a magical being.
With Paul Hilton as William Palmer (‘Pilgrim’) and Rachael Spence as Freya. Also starring Adeel Akhtar, Henry Devas, Claire Price, Claire Harry and Agnes Bateman. Directed by Marc Beeby.
