Strange | Interviews | Tom Baker
Father Bernard

Tom Baker Picture Could you describe your character for us?

My character is a very strange Dominican Priest called Father Bernard who might or might not be implicated in the fearful, rather supernatural, goings on here.

This is a mixture of modern horror and ancient mythology and monsters and pagan gods with names like Asmodius.

The other thing is that the man I'm playing is blind, but does seem to have supernatural sensitivity to what's happening around him. Quite up my street playing demented, strange, improbable monks.
