Svengali features Derren at his predictably unpredictable best!
|Derren Brown's Svengali.|
* At the time of writing.
When the doll originally performed, people at the performances believed that the doll had possessed them, leaving many of them terrified. This was a belief that Levascht himself encouraged and in fact people became so convinced by the powers of Levascht’s act that at one stage the Catholic church actually exorcised the Svengali doll.

To sum it up, Svengali uses Derren Brown’s usual mix of hypnotism, psychology, misdirection and trickery to excellent effect. In all likelihood Channel 4 will no doubt give Svengali another airing on one of their channels at some point in the future, so for fans of Derren who missed it the first time my advice would be to make a note in your diary to catch Derren at his predictably unpredictable best.
