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.

They are reshowing Whistle and I'll come to You this year but that's it I think
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.
