Century Falls was a six episode miniseries initially broadcast in 1993. It was written by Russell T Davies, and tells the story of teenager Tess Hunter (Catherine Sanderson) and her mother (Heather Baskerville), who move to the seemingly idyllic rural village of Century Falls, only to find that it hides many powerful secrets!
Upon arrival, Tess and her mother begin to find Century Falls to be a strange village, haunted by a disaster that befell it during the performance of an occult ceremony forty years earlier.
Tess befriends the only other children in the village, brother and sister Ben (Simon Fenton) and Carey Naismith (Emma Jane Lavin), and finds that Ben has strange powers which he draws from the waterfall that gives the village its name.
The Naismiths’ uncle Richard (Bernard Kay) is working with his aged father, Dr Josiah Naismith, to complete the unfinished ceremony using Ben’s powers, hoping to raise the spirit of a mysterious God-like being, Century. They are eventually stopped by Tess’s actions, aided by the local Harkness sisters, who knew the original tragedy of the 1950’s events.
