Trivia

Originally written by Stephen Gallagher to be the pilot episode for the anthology series "Chiller" in further collaboration with Lawrence Gordon Clark, director of the BBC's Ghost Stories for Christmas, most of which were adaptations from the work of M R James. Chillers achieved high ratings with its debut episode, "Prophecy" but fell victim to the scheduling practice of postponing episodes to make way for sports fixtures. See more »

Best episode so far.
13 February 2018 | by See all my reviews

Easily the best episode so far, Here comes the Mirror Man is cohesive, tense, and very well acted, and unlike the first two, there is a distinct threat, namely in the shape of Michael. Well written, very well made, this one has managed to ignite my interest in the series, which, after Toby had begun to fall. A clever play on a much used premise, Michael was a dark character indeed.

Phyllis Logan wasn't long out of Lovejoy, and it's no wonder that she's been a stalwart of TV since, she's fantastic, excellent in this episode, as is John Simm, who always managed to add some sincerity to unusual parts, no wonder he's the star he is now, a cracking performance from him also.

It is very Nineties. Made me feel nostalgic watching it.
