The stories are quite good, but you always get a few duff ones in any series. I often put this on for a bit of nostalgia and to be honest to get away from all the God-awful CGI that seems to be in everything these days and to be honest I think ruins a lot of films. You couldn't hide or cover things up in those days - with no computer generated special effects or images, you had to rely on the real deal.
If you want to curl up and have a chill, I recommend adding this to your collection.
Rude Awakening, as I recall, really confused me when first seeing it in 1980. However, when you reach the END of the episode all is revealed and you appreciate just how clever the story was. And, as for Lucy Gutteridge who played 'Lolly Fellows'. Wow, what a beautiful girl. Yeah, each time you see her she had a 'different' appearance and her character had a totally different demeanour AND voice, and this showed what a great actress she was. Yes, when I first saw this back in1980 that was one of things that confused me. But I now appreciate just how clever the story was and this is indeed one of my favourite episodes. And, the very last scene with Denholm Elliott is so funny, AND sad at the same time.
I am always interested in the outdoor locations and the very first scene where Denholm Elliott gets out of his car has always intrigued me as you see a road sign which is high on the wall of the building NEAR his character's office which says 'Station Approach'. Have tried for years to locate this on the Internet but I could never locate this until now. After a lot of research, I found it to be Station Approach, Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire. You can see on Streetview just WHERE 'Norman Shenley's' office was. It is right on the corner at the very bottom on the left as you go down. Great to look around the area on Streetview to see just WHERE they were all those years ago. Even the windows are the same all these years on. I wonder if the people who now have this office realise just how famous these premises were!
My other favourite episode was The Silent Scream which starred Peter Cushing and Brian Cox. No, not the ANNOYING, ARROGANT, FULL-OF-HIMSELF 'Professor' Brian Cox, but the 'ORIGINAL' Brian Cox!. What a great story this is, and the ending is SO clever.
One thing that confused me when I first bought it was the video 'description' on the sleeve of VISITORS FROM THE GRAVE.
Mine has a description that is 100% nonsense and which has NOTHING to do with the episode in question. Maybe they have corrected this 'since' I bought it, but baffled WHY they ever printed this nonsense that seemed to be made up.
There are indeed a few rubbish episodes. Such as VISITORS FROM THE GRAVE, THE HOUSE THAT DRIPPED BLOOD, THE CARPATHIAN EAGLE, to name but three. But that's just MY opinion.
If you are of a certain age and watched it in your younger years, you'll love this boxed set.
*****By the way. Look out for a 21-year-old Gerard Kelly in The Thirteenth Reunion where he played Andrew. Have just watched this episode again and had forgotten how good it was.
You MAY remember Gerard from Extras in 2005 (S1 EP4 The Les Dennis episode) where he played Bunny Bunton, the father of Lizzie (Rebecca Gethings). He was hilarious. Have just found out that he sadly passed away in 2010 at the age of 51. What a sad loss.
This excellent value DVD box set contains all 13 episodes of this memorable entry in television horror. A wide range of genre was covered here, everything from mystery and intrigue, to supernatural and sinister drama, as well as some seriously chilling moments, there is something for every horror/drama enthusiast.
Several of the episodes in this series were very good indeed, 'Children Of The Full Moon' could have actually made a very credible feature length movie, and along with the thrilling 'The Silent Scream', 'The Thirteen Reunion' and 'Visitor From The Grave' these are my personal favourites. There were a couple of episodes that weren't so good in my opinion, some of them were pretty silly, but none necessarily unwatchable.
The stories are not presented on these two discs in their original UK broadcasting order. The first episode to air on ITV was not 'The House That Bled to Death', but actually 'Witching Time', one of the more weaker episodes, but a chance to see the talented actress Patricia Quinn, and the lovely Prunella Gee (Patricia Fearing in the 1983 James Bond adventure 'Never Say Never Again') in her prime.
However, despite a few turkeys present, there is more than enough great entertainment here to merit at least a four star review, and for me to hail this box-set as a real treat for horror/classic British TV fans. The bonus features aren't anything spectacular, just a brief biography of each episode's major actors, and photograph still galleries.
