RE: Derek Acorah
Humm.... Any chance of an option like, "I do think he has a psychic ability, but maybe he has a tendancy to experience a psychic equivilant of writers block."
When i had first started watching MH, I thought that he was really genuine and i had a lot of respect for him. But it was almost like he suddenly lost his talent and didnt want to admit it and just started coming out with random silly things (like rabbits!:rolleyes:) People started losing fate in him. Maybe his thurst for fame caused his block. I have a tendency not to watch his shows after he left MH. (although in saying that, i'd love to see his program on Egypt!)

RE: Derek Acorah
Oh, I really don't know what option to choose. In the the beginning I, too, really thought that he was genuine. He seemed to be accurate on most things. Then it seemed like he was slowly "slipping" away. What I mean is that he started to say things that were either REALLY off or just plain nonsense (i.e. the rabbits ;) ). I stated before that when David was brought on I was a little "protective" over Derek, but as time went on, it seemed like David was outdoing Derek every time. He was far more accurate and he just seemed to be the one to believe. I also think that Derek getting possessed so often was strange.

I honestly don't know which to choose because I think he does have a certain amount of talent. But, like blackannis said, maybe he has some sort of block.

I only tried to watch his programs twice. I just don't seem to have the same interest in it as I do with MH

RE: Derek Acorah
At least i'm not alone in remembering the Rabbits!:PJust have to remember which Location it was though! But you are right. They were either far off or nonsense. And yeah David did start to out shine him. Not to mention the team got pissed off with him over him not telling them about protection etc.:rolleyes:

RE: Derek Acorah
I think that Derek is a real medium, but I also think that he is a 'show-boater'. In other words- anything to make an exciting show. Different mediums have different skill levels and his seemed to be 'ok',..but nothing spectacular. What really bothered and perplexed me about him was that it was always a 'nasty man' or negative spirit that he picked up on...I had to wonder several times if he was just faking it to make excting tv.

RE: Derek Acorah
It's strange that we all feel the same way about Derek and his capabilities.

I, too, used to believe in Derek's talent and at first thought that his 'possessions' were genuine, but as the MH series progressed and the 'possessions' became more frequent and, in some cases, more violent, I began to think that they were more for show.

My Mother and I always used to joke that Derek would 'go into one' when things got quiet - and sure enough . . . !

I don't doubt that he has a gift, but I do wonder why he has let showmanship take over and his credibility slip.

RE: Derek Acorah
i think he was asked to make the show more exciting and they didnt like it ,so rather than say so they booted him.
but thats just my opinion.

who knows ,once we die we might all be wrong and theres nothing there.

RE: Derek Acorah
I don't think the Team initially set out to discredit Derek, but I do think that, as his 'possessions' became more regular and increasingly violent, they possibly wanted to find a way to terminate his contract as quickly as possible.

When you consider that he had more spiritual 'misses' than 'hits', it is not hard to imagine that it was Ciarán's idea, as Parapsychologist, to expose him as fraudulent and, unfortunately, Derek fell into his trap and led on the fictitious characters, because this is what he had heard - if the trusted Team are talking about spirits called Kreed Kafer, they must be true right?

I believe that Antix sanctioned Ciarán's going public with the story in a bid to show the fans and the media that if there were fakers on the show, they would be exposed and dispensed with, thereby drawing attention away from the media stories that the whole show was fraudulent.
