    Shame, Some of the recent ones have been very good. Last year's re-telling of Whistle and I'll come to you was interesting but vastly inferior to the original.

    Mark Gatiss's Crooked House was excellent as where the other recent M.R James adaptations of A View From A Hill and Number 13.

    Was really hoping this was going to become a Christmas tradition again like it was in the 70's.

    :(

    Yes, the first two were weak, but the last one was excellent and I found that one genuinely creepy. Apparently Gatiss only wanted to do the last one but then the BBC decided they wanted a series and he had to come up quickly with two more stories.

    I watched Whistle And I'll Come To You this evening. A bit of a disappointment though - I didn't understand the plot and I didn't find it scary.
