    Just catched the last couple of minutes of this weeks episode and it said 'X (Jen I think?) sadly lost her life on the way home from filming'....

    then the commentator for Channel 4 said it was a joke! Is this an inside joke or something?

    Someone fill me in please.

    I was about to start the same thread.

    If it was a joke, I didn't get it.

    Perhpas it is a 'joke' by and for Derren himself. He's possibly just sat at home atm chuckling to himself at the thought of people going OMG!! A bit like Andy Kaufman perhaps...

    Because during the show, she was confronted by a black cat crossing her path, had to walk under a ladder, passed someone on a stairway and broke a mirror as well as some other superstitious things. She herself was superstitious and said something like "what happens if I die tomorrow?" so it was that statement that was being played on.

    I personally thought it was funny, but Im a sick puppy

    basically what happened was her trick involved her doing alot of supersticious stuff like breaking a mirror, walking under a ladder, seeing a black cat...etc

    Aside from that, I'd just like to say, Derren Brown never fails to amaze me with his observations about human behaviour and his ability to predict things

    She said 'I really hope I don't die on the way home' and at the end it said she died on the way home.
    doesn't sound difficult to comprehend to me.

    I'm really sensitive about death at the moment because 2 of my friends have recently died.

    I don't see how anyone could find it funny

    Well, sorry if it makes me sick, but when i thought it was a funny joke (and i fell for it - my brother and i were like 'oooh, thats awful').

    I love this programme, but i think there haven't been nearly enough tricks this series. Last series was way better, especially when Derren made that woman believe she was dead watching herself being pulled out from a car accident...
