This review is from: Ghost Stories from the BBC: The Stalls of Barchester / A Warning to the Curious [DVD] (DVD)
Finally re-released classic M R James ghost stories adapted for BBC at Christmas. I already owned a copy of "A Warning to the Curious" but wanted the additional story, and with "The Stalls of Barchester" this DVD represents the best of the BFI releases (sadly Jonathan Miller's, "Whistle and I'll come to you" has been put on a DVD with the terrible adaptation from 2010 and some poor extras). All these dvds come with a nice little booklet with key cast/director biographies along with some essays on the particular stories (including one by Robert Lloyd Parry who performs James stories live and is must see if you are a fan) for that dvd. The picture quality for AWttC has been considerably cleaned up compared to my previous copy, and as a brilliant addition there are included the Christopher Lee readings of both stories. There are also introductions to both films by the director as an extra feature and they provide a useful insight into the making of them.
