Set in the Outer Hebrides in the year 1900, Some Strange Scent of Death is based the true story of the mysterious disappearance of the St. Flannan Isles lighthouse keepers. Locals believed they had been spirited away by the phantom of the isles; others thought that an enemy vessel had taken the men, or that a monster from the deep had lifted them bodily from the island. There was even talk of black-cowled ghosts. Although the truth is that they were probably swept away and drowned, rumours have played a big part in making this a mystery of Marie Celeste proportions. - Angela Elliott was interviewed recently for the Science Channel's programme the Unexplained Files. It aired on 19th August 2014 in the USA and will air in the UK on the 15th September 2014.
