Customer Review

on 16 January 2014
Not much to add to the other reviews; both are actually good stories, although the second one is not really about ghosts. The quality of 'The Ferryman' print is markedly poorer than "Poor Girl' but the acting is great and they're worth watching just for that. The special effects are of their time shall we say!

The most interesting thing for me in some ways is just how dated the 1970s now appear, even to someone who grew up in them; it's quite amusing how the rebellious young writer in 'The Ferryman' wears a suit, dresses for dinner, has sherry before, whiskey after etc etc. Very traditional but then Kingsley Amis (who wrote the story) was more of a 1950s guy.

The DVD is a bit disappointing, apart from the poor reproduction; there are no extras, so it seems as if it was produced as cheaply as possible. I personally don't think these two are any where near as good as the BBC MR James series but worth watching if you like ghost stories.
