Decent Horror Dramas
6 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

From the 'Golden Age of British TV' these Dramas only suffer from some rather hammy acting in parts and some liberties with the original novels on which they are based, especially the rather strange rendition of Stoker's Dracula. The real tragedy is that some stories which have been crying out for a good TV portrayal, such as JS Le Fanu's The Room at the Dragon Volant (called the Flying Dragon' in this series), and MR James' The Casting of the Runes, Number 13, and the Tractate Middoth have all been lost in time. Though some of the above have been portrayed on TV (or the big screen) from other sources, the versions have been poor in comparison to what may (one hopes) be lying in some loft/cellar/African marketplace if one can judge from reports from those who saw and recall the originals. Let's hope these lost episodes are found and restored to the public in the future.
