25 April 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Steven Berkoff's adaptation of Edgar Allen Poe's chilling tale, 'The Tell-Tale Heart', was originally presented on British TV as part of the acclaimed series Without Walls.

There are a number of characters on the sidelines, but what we really have here is a powerful central performance by Berkoff which threatens at times to be too big for the small screen. I've seen him perform the piece live and it really is a stunning piece.

The mounting hysteria of 'The Man' as he recounts the details of his crime and the reason he gives himself away is superbly portrayed, and this 30-minute performance is one that is unlikely to be forgotten easily by anyone who has seen it.
