Alison's Retribution

To banish her demons, Alison must confront the painful truth about her childhood, while Colette embraces the future with Gavin. Stars Alison Steadman.

Dramatisation by Caroline Harrington of Hilary Mantel's blackly comic novel about a professional medium with a troubled past.

Alison knows that in order to banish the demons of her past she must face them and confront the painful truth about what happened in her childhood. With the help of Mrs McGibbet, yet another spirit from her past, Alison learns the worst. Meanwhile, Colette goes back home to Gavin, and the two of them try to remember why they split up in the first place. Alison's appalling spirit guide Morris realises she's lost to him forever now that she has not only faced down her demons but has committed a good deed and will go on to commit more. Alison is at last free to set off into a brighter future with a replacement spirit guide, the sweet and devoted Maureen.
