  • Although widely-regarded as one of the greatest children’s authors of all-time, Roald Dahl also wrote chilling adult fiction, taking the twisted ideas used to entertain children and thrilling adults with similar themes. Much-gossiped about in its day, the surprising stories – usually with a sting in the tale – enthralled a nation the moment the iconic titles started.

    Sinister and with a touch of the macabre, Tales of the Unexpected holds, at its heart, a core of black humour that makes each story both compelling and surprising, with a twist in each tale that delighted audiences throughout the country.

    This complete fifth series, first shown in 1982/3, features 18 top-notch episodes with compelling performances by such renowned actors as Ralph Bates, Sir John Mills, Derek Jacobi, Harry H. Corbett, Fulton Mackay, Susan Penhaligon, Peter Egan, Ian Holm and Janet Leigh.
