Synopsis:
This highly acclaimed anthology series presented a selection of Gothic tales by major 19th-century writers. Among the adapted works featured in this collection are Robert Louis Stevenson's nihilistic 'The Suicide Club', 'Sheridan le Fanu's Uncle Silas', Bram Stoker's classic 'Dracula' and a commendably faithful adaptation of Mary Shelley's 'Frankenstein'. A distinguished cast includes Ian Holm (Chariots of Fire), Denholm Elliot (Indiana Jones), Patrick Mower (Callan) and Freddie Jones (The Elephant Man), who gives an astonishing performance as the demented barber, Sweeney Todd.
This release contains every remaining episode of 'Mystery and Imagination' and brings together all six of the feature-length teleplays...
