"In 1684, John Martin is on trial for his life, but this is not a cut and dried murder case because the young woman he is accused of killing has been seen after her death. Mark Gatiss's adaptation of MR James' ghost story, starring Peter Capaldi, Wilf Scolding, Simon Williams, Sara Crowe, James Holmes and Fisayo Akinade"

'The Dead Room' - Thu 24 Dec - 10:45pm-11:15pm - BBC Two (not Northern Ireland)

" Ghost story written and directed by Mark Gatiss that is set in the studios of a long-running radio horror series. The presenter of the show (Simon Callow) resents the fact that he must adapt to changing times and tastes, but during an eerie night's work, he begins to suspect that dark forces are at work in the studio and his own past may not be as buried as he expected. With Anjli Mohindra, Susan Penhaligon and Joshua Oakes-Rogers."

'The Lost Ghost Story with Mark Gatiss' - Thu 24 Dec - 11:15pm-12:15am - BBC Two (not Northern Ireland)

"The actor and writer examines the life and career of author MR James, trying to discover how this devout Anglican bachelor created supernatural tales that continue to chill readers more than a century on. He visits James's childhood home in Suffolk as well as Eton College and King's College, Cambridge, the two institutions where he spent most of his life, and ventures into ancient churches, dark cloisters and echoing libraries along the way as he attempt to uncover the writer's inspirations."
I still have Martin's Close and The Dead Room recorded.

I suppose the plague put paid to any new adap this year...

In a similar vein i still have Mark Gatiss' Europa Horror episodes recorded.

I enjoyed both those two and hopefully will see them next on a BFI MR James set along with The Tractate Middoth. Pity they aren't repeating that. T'was excellent.

Tuesday, December 29th on BBC4

9pm - 10:15pm: Bruce Dickinson: Scream for Me Sarajevo

"Documentary about a 1994 concert by Bruce Dickinson and his band Skunkworks in Sarajevo, when the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina was in its third year under siege during the ongoing Bosnian War. Featuring personal accounts of the band members who risked their lives to perform in a war zone, and the fans who attended the concert while living in the midst of continual violence."

10:15pm - 11:45pm: Metal Britannia

"Documentary tracing the genre's emergence in the late 1960s, pioneered by bands including Black Sabbath and Judas Priest, who were based in the industrialised Midlands. This classic form of metal was challenged by punk in the late 1970s, before a new wave of groups such as Iron Maiden, Def Leppard and Saxon reinvigorated the style. Featuring contributions by singers Ian Gillan, Glenn Tipton, Lemmy, Bruce Dickinson and Rob Halford, guitarist Tony Iommi and keyboard player Jon Lord. Narrated by Nigel Planer."

11:45pm - 1:20am: Metallica at Glastonbury 2014

"A chance to see the band's headline set on the Pyramid Stage at the 2014 event - the first time a heavy metal group had topped the bill at the famous festival. Throughout their 90-minute set they played tracks from their back catalogue including Nothing Else Matters, Enter Sandman, Seek and Destroy plus Thin Lizzy's Whiskey in the Jar."

Danny Boyle to direct Sex Pistols TV series / BBC News

"Trainspotting director Danny Boyle is to make a six-part TV series about 1970s punk icons the Sex Pistols.

Based on guitarist Steve Jones's memoir, it will star Anson Boon (from 1917) as John Lydon and Louis Partridge (Enola Holmes) as Sid Vicious.

Game Of Thrones star Maisie Williams will also play Pamela Rooke, aka Jordan, who was one of the people credited with creating the punk look.

Filming is due to start in March for US TV network FX.

No UK broadcaster has been announced yet - but the company has a content partnership deal with the BBC, which has screened FX series like The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, Atlanta and Feud: Bette and Joan."

She'll have to put a bit of meat on herself if she's playing Jordan.

I was thinking more of her build, Maisie is tiny, Jordan is well known for her curves and full body! It'll require a bit of imagination I think
