A Forgotten Classic
20 September 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw this originally back in the 70s when it was shown as an early afternoon drama. It has been one of those plays that haunts you for life! It's probably very slow starting for today's youngsters, but is still definitely worth their viewing it. Production values may have changed but the atmosphere created is chilling and rises to a crescendo at the nailbiting end. The recreation of a Peak District village and its shop is probably more realistic than most youngsters will realise. The village oafs who are set on persecuting old Mrs Clempson are not too far off the mark either! Directors of the future should take note of the pathos injected into the scenes in the suspected witch's cottage

  • it would be good to have such drama on our screens today.
