I have been waiting and waiting for this terrifying BBC ghost story to be available on release to the public. Originally shown at Christmas 1979 (when the BBC used to produce high quality Christmas ghost stories on an annual basis), it is absolutely mesmerising and very frightening. The wedding night scene between Rose and her new "husband" is utterly chilling and has remained with me for years. A must see.
