Dating in the dark episode 2 part 1
During the reveal process the couple must remain silent.While being shown in the light, a contestant cannot see the other contestant's reaction.Wisely, In The Dark writer Danny Brocklehurst didn’t put Phil’s scenes side-by-side with Helen’s emotional confession about the sexual abuse she suffered as a child.
Cameras are set up to show both the meeting balcony and the front door.
Each contestant is standing at opposite ends of the dark room with a very large two-way mirror between them.
A color camera films from the dark side of the mirror while the other is illuminated on the other side.
Matt King’s character may brighten up the place like a jazzy lamp, but his presence made for too distracting a shift in tone in episode two.
Levity in crime fiction provides a much-needed break in the clouds, but heart-rending accounts of childhood abuse and gags about Sniffer-Pigs don’t sit well side-by-side.
