The Evil Touch
8 October 2006 | by rvcrvcSee all my reviews

I love this show, despite it all but having disappeared from the world. As a 10 year old i was freaked by this, especially in Australia where it was filmed. Bits of the shows come to mind when i try hard to remember. I am looking for copies of the scripts if anyone has them. It's time someone (maybe me) had a go at bringing it back in a modern style.) If anyone has any info they want to share, then you can get in contact with me via this site. As with others, it was Anthony Quayle, and his "Goodnight....Pleasant Dreams!" and the smoke and music that got to me. The shows weren't great by todays standards, but they were good. A lot of them wouldn't get past the censors or the "do-gooder" brigade, in some cases i guess rightly so, but mores the pity. I like this show and would love to see it again.
