BTW, is it just me, or is British children's television just ten times weirder and scarier than anything we Yanks had as kids?!
I've envious of you Dr_Locrian of the stories of Sapphire and Steel you haven't seen the best yet which to my mind is the second story (Set on a Railway Station) and the fourth(?) story which is set in a junk shop, both these stories still after repeated viewings still sends shivers up my spine.
Oh, and after you finished watching them you can get more stories on audio (a company called Big Finish does them â€“ they have different people playing the leads though).
There is some great British Tv I'll do some name checks but its hard to work out if something is Lovecraftian or not. I mean I wouldn't have said Children of the Stones was, but I think atmosphere is a great help and it is sometimes worth watching something just for the one idea.
