Cheers,

Edinburgh Haunts

Ep 1/3

I Remember Yesterday is the first of three brand-new ghost stories from leading Scottish writers which are set in Edinburgh.

Bestselling crime writer Val McDermid, whose Tony Hill detective novels were dramatised as TV series Wire In The Blood, kicks off the haunted Edinburgh tales.

A young woman haunts 'the Serpent's Back' of The Royal Mile in Edinburgh, seeking revenge to the Seventies strains of Donna Summer's song 'I Remember Yesterday'.

The series continues with Susie Maguire's tale of an actor at the Edinburgh Festival whose performance of a Robert Louis Stevenson short story begins to take hold of him; and thriller writer Louise Welsh concludes with a story that evokes the folklore of the doppelganger, or double, but is set in a contemporary Edinburgh town house. In traditional tales, your double is a shadow heralding your own death - if you see your own doppelganger in passing, it's very bad news!

Read by/ Hannah Donaldson, Producer/ Allegra McIlroy for the BBC


Hope you enjoy these tales.
