Natasha Pope in Gaia: A Death on Dancing Ledge

Post by Drassil »

One of the interviewees in BBC Three's three-part documentary about Gaia Pope-Sutherland is her mother: named in the captions as Kim but better known to us as Natasha Pope (Velda, Brangwen and Morghanna in Knightmare Series 3, 1989).

The story of Gaia's trauma, and her family's lasting heartbreak, is tragic and distressing. If there is one moment of light in the series, it's in Episode 3 when we see home video of Natasha/Kim at Dancing Ledge as a newlywed and mother-to-be, with references to happy times spent there. This would have been some time prior to 1998 so she looks similar to how we remember her from Knightmare.

There are details of the family's campaigning on the Justice for Gaia website.
