Anthology series for Yorkshire Television, 1995. Created in further collaboration with Lawrence Gordon Clark, director of Chimera and of the BBC’s classic Ghost Stories for Christmas.
We kicked off the series with my adaptation of Peter James’ novel Prophecy and pulled in, as I recall, somewhere in excess of 11 million viewers. A number that ITV went on to squander by pre-empting later shows for sports fixtures. Here Comes The Mirror Man was based on my earlier radio play The Kingston File, and had we run to a second season I was set to adapt my novella To Dance by the Light of the Moon. Prophecy featured Sophie Ward and Nigel Havers; Mirror Man starred Phyllis Logan and John Simm, and both were drected by Lawrence.Stephen Gallagher
