Hide and Peek
The sight of timorous offspring dashing behind the sofa during Buffy the Vampire Slayer is a fond memory for any parent. Unless they found you there already, in which case it’s deeply humiliating!
We all try to be brave but there comes a time when peeping through fingers is not enoughand,at such moments, putting a large item of soft furnishing between you and Buffy is the only option.
So what other TV shows haveus staring at swirls of fabric with nothing but foreign coins and Christmas mint wrappers for company? Here, in reverse order, is the much disputed all-time, top three ‘behind the sofa moments’ of the small screen:
Forget the Cybermen and the dreaded Daleks. Way back when ‘The Doctor’ was reassuringly middle-aged and gave out jelly babies, a certain episode evacuated every three-seater in the land. In Spearhead From Space, benign department store mannequins suddenly came to life, broke out of their 1970’s window displays and inflicted a lot more than bell-bottoms and hot-pants on innocent passers-by. Terrifying. Is it any wonder that C&A went out of business?
The Day of the Triffids
Murderous nine-foot shrubs take over the world in a chilling BBC adaptation of the John Wyndham classic that had the whole family staring at the skirting board. Even if Dad remained seated, the giant thistles at the foot of the garden got a thorough dousing with Weedo on the following weekend.
The truth is out there and Mulder and Scully allowed very few of us to sit calmly in the 1990’s. If nothing else, this horror powerhouse tops the chart by its sheer heart-skips per minute quotient. With 202 episodes running over nine years, even the deepest shag-pile was showing signs of wear either side of the Chesterfield!
