British Invaders 58: M. R. James (Part 2)

M. R. James wrote classic spooky ghost stories. We now conclude our discussion of three television adaptations of stories by M. R. James. Last time, we looked at A Warning to the Curious (1972) and Casting the Runes (1979). Now, we are focusing on Whistle and I’ll Come to You (1968). We also look at some other M. R. James adaptations for television, radio and film.

Please send us your comments, questions, requests, corrections and complaints. What do you think of us covering three short teleplays in one discussion? Should we use it again? You can reach us at, and you can find us on the British Invaders Facebook Group.
