I love this one - must have seen it 10 times! Its right up there with the best of Hammer's psychological thrillers but benefits from a taught script and running time. All of the performances are excellent but special mentions must go to Patrick Allen who is clearly having a ball as the suave, sinister Luther. If Hammer ever consider a new version of the series or perhaps a portmanteau movie with 3 or 4 mini stories, I'd love to see this one re-made along with some new stories from current writers. But whatever you do - keep the fairground setting and spooky title music - the best opening sequence of all time! Such a shame this series has never come out on DVD - it had a unique quality and atmosphere and was clearly a major production for the time.
