  • Although widely-regarded as one of the greatest childrenís 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 Ė usually with a sting in the tale Ė enthralled a nation the moment the iconic titles started.

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

    This complete third series, first transmitted to great critical acclaim in 1980, features nine top-notch episodes with gripping performances from the likes of Alfred Burke (Public Eye, Manhunt), Bill Maynard (Selwyn Froggit, Heartbeat), Roy Marsden (Sandbaggers, PD James Mysteries), Joan Collins (The Stud, The Bitch), Pauline Collins (Upstairs Downstairs, Shirley Valentine), Sir John Gielgud (Brideshead Revisited, Gandhi), Denholm Elliott (Raiders of the Lost Ark, Voyage of the Damned) and Anthony Valentine (Callan, The Knock).
