Spooky John Laurie
2 July 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

What a shame this great old series has been lost. Frazier, in Dad's Army, whilst an excellent character, does not convey the spookiness of John Laurie in his role as Algernon Blackwood/narrator. I was 8 - 10 years old when I watched this, but still remember it with affection. I particularly recall the episode in which the ghost of a young Highlander returned to the derelict croft which had been his home; his fervent whisper, rising to a wail, "Mother, mother, let me in!" Truly haunting. All too often enquiries about this programme are directed to sites about "Tales Of Mystery And Imagination," which featured the late David Buck; another great show, but in my humble opinion, it didn't hold a candle to this gem. Very sorely missed!
