  • Ramsay Campbell on MR James (2001, 16 mins)

I watched all the series last Christmas (again) and i'm not really sure it needs replacing on Blu-ray as it seemed fine to me.

I just know come December i'll be watching the new Blu-ray versions though.

Lets hope by volume three we have The Tractate Middoth, Martin's Close, The Dead Room and last years superb adaptation of The Mezzotint.

According to the original story it's a mix of horror, occult and fairy tale and dark mystery.
