Such a shame this mini-series never aired but luckily it is available on video. It is well worth seeking out - and not just for fans of Boris Karloff but for fans of mystery and horror. There are actually 12 episodes in all but "The Vestris" and "Peggy" are released under the title "Tales of the Unexplained".
These tales are all horror but strongly a part of the mystery genre as well - at least I them to be.
Karloff is in quite a few of these and not just our host of the show - which makes them even better. As usual he's a bit scary in most of them and good as always.
This is a series a would recommend highly for fans of Murder, Mystery, Horror and of Karloff.
