leaves a lasting impression, 18 February 2007
Author: Paddo Jonski from United Kingdom

When I was about ten I saw this episode in the UK. Like some of the others, from this series, I never forgot it but this one stood out the most. I think it mad a huge impact on me ( as a child, and I probably should not have been allowed to watch it, on reflection) and influenced the sort of drama I have been interested in since. One thing, I do not know where I can get this DVD in the UK and would really like to find out, if anybody wants to post a comment on where I should look?

The story involves, as I remember it, a small girl who has an imaginary friend and her mother (or perhaps her guardian) has very little patience with her. The way the plot unfolds was done in a near perfect fashion and the usual Hitchcok type twist was done with pure genius. Fabulous TV and I can't think of another film that had a similar effect on me apart from the brilliant 'Don't Look Now'.
