Arachnophobia!!!
20 November 2009 | by MuswellmediaSee all my reviews

I remember seeing this as a child. It must have been the first fantasy show that I followed all the way through its run, definitely a must see. I remember that it was set on a ship which became a floating hospital as the infection or curse turned people into spiders, Just that idea scared me silly. I dare say that this would look as creaky and old as some of the other stuff from that era that I have managed to review if I could see it now but the image of a giant spider that was once a human lying on its back on a hospital bed has stayed with me since seeing it way back then. Couldn't say the same about anything I have watched on TV this year, and I have a good memory.So I rate it highly for that reason. There seemed to be a golden age of fantasy and science fiction on British TV through the fifties and sixties with many great series, mostly sadly lost now. Very few of the ones that do exist have made it to DVD.
