Shadows: The Complete First Series
Monday 8th November 2010
Shadows: The Complete Series 1, released by Network DVD on 22nd November 2010, features Jenny Agutter (The Railway Children), Sophie Ward (A Dark Adapted Eye), Russell Hunter (Callan), John Nettleton (Yes, Minister) and Pauline Quirke (Birds of a Feather) in this spine-tingling anthology series for younger viewers.
Atmospheric, superbly scripted and filled with the unexpected, between 1975 and 1978 Shadows offered psychological and supernatural tales in which characters typically found themselves plunged into strange alternative realities, or encountering ghostly figures from the past - the young protagonists' otherworldly experiences often playing upon common teenage fears and preoccupations.
Among the contributors for this first series were novelist and playwright J.B. Priestley, who co-wrote 'The Other Window' with his third wife, archaeologist Jacquetta Hawkes, Roger Marshall (Public Eye) and Ace of Wands creator Trevor Preston, who revived the character of magician Mr. Stabs for 'Dutch Schlitz's Shoes'.
