A seldom seen but effective series.
12 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

How typical of the BBC in not bothering to preserve their own archives. This series - "Dead of Night," offers some very good suspense television. The episode about the Haunted countryside house is the best of the three existing episodes in my opinion but none of them disappoint.

The DVD release comes with an accompanying booklet about the series.
