Can anyone help with this one that I got via email?
I live in New Zealand but found your website and thought you might be able to help me find a UK TV film I watched circa 1989-90. I always thought it was called a Leap in the Dark or a Walk in the Dark but I've searched under those names and not found what I was looking for. According to my recollection, the plot summary is very roughly thus: A couple go on holiday to the Lake District or some such location and stay in a small isolated hotel. One night the man's wife suddenly vanishes after walking out of the door to their room and is never found. Some years later, the man spots a woman in the street who resembles his missing wife and becomes friends with her. A short while later he takes her on holiday to the same hotel and tries to reenact his wife's disappearance and when she walks out through the door to the room she vanishes in the same way.
It may have been on Channel 4 but can't be sure. It was absolutely gripping and I've love to try to find it again.
