‘Elsewhere’ is about the redemptive power of love. When Linz finds herself in a bank bad aboard de SS Nile she thinks she must be dreaming. How else to explain the stranger in the top bunk and the appearance of an oddly precocious seven-year-old dressed as the capitain? When she eventually desembarks she is greeted by her grandmother, Betty, who died before Liz was born. Gradually, Liz comes to understand that she’s dead, killed in a hit-and-run accident – she’s now living in Elsewhere where no one grows older, only younger until they eventually return to Earth to be born. But admitting it is one thing, acceptance quite another. Liz refuses to get to know her new world, adamant that she wants her old life back, and watches her old world from the Observation Deck at every opportunity. When she gathers her courage and try to take the only route back to Earth, she mets Owen and, with the help of her new friend Sadie, the loveable mutt, begins to see that she’s made a new beginning after all.
