Another episode from the classic British TV series of unsettling dramas. In this episode, television reporter Jemima Shore (Maria Aitken), a former pupil at a convent school, is asked to investigate the mysterious death of one of the convent's nuns, who died from starvation after locking herself in one of the tower rooms.

I remember watching this when I was younger and the scene with the faceless black nun sitting in a rocking chair is just as chilling now as it was when I first watched it. As I said before this is the best and certainly (in my opinion) the most scary story in the series. A chilling piece of British television and well worth adding to your collection.
This six-part series is adapted from Antonia Fraser's novel and stars Aitken as TV journalist Jemima Shore (later given her own series Jemima Shore Investigates with Patricia Hodge as the eponymous heroine) investigating the troubled death of old school friend Sister Miriam and the strange goings-on (at night!) at the Convent of the Blessed Eleanor, and includes Patsy Kensit (Birdseye Peas) in an early role. It's true that it was the talk of the Nation's playgrounds and work spaces - a watercooler moment when the closest people had ever got to a real watercooler was watching Jack Klugman fill his face on Quincey. I was much too young for all that of course and only happened to catch it via my mother's womb when the midwife accidentally picked up ITV on the monitor as she was giving her a scan (true).
We've waited a long time.
I will be ordering more of the Armchair Thriller series soon. Thank to all at Amazon UK.
