   People who have been thought to be long-dead are appearing in the small and otherwise unimposing, even uninteresting (no offence), town of Dingle Dell. These are not zombies, reincarnations, or doppelgängers, but the victims of temporal rendition – removed from their own time and deposited together in the here-and-now (well at least Radames’ here-and-now, which for us would be there-and-then)………………………………………….
