Description

Actor and writer Laurence Rickard, who plays caveman Robin in the BBC sitcom Ghosts, picks his favourite classic Uncanny episode.

Retired policeman Alan Godfrey tells us the story of the case that has obsessed him for his whole life. When Alan tries to solve a weird and seemingly impossible murder in the small northern town of Todmorden, it leads to a bizarre UFO sighting and then a strange and sinister government cover up that ends up affecting Alan’s life.

Danny Robins explores if there is real evidence of extra-terrestrial visits to Earth. Did Alan genuinely have an alien encounter and, if not, why were the real-life ‘men in black’ from the government so interested?
