Ah, what a shame. RIP. A memorably sinister performance!

Also good value in Doctor Who and the War Machines in 1966.

I have it on DVD, must say it's my cup of tea, yet so quirky I wouldn't recommend it to everybody.

All four episodes were on youtube two weeks ago, probably still there, go opportunity to try before buying.

Don't expect to get to the end of an episode and know what has just happened though;) Very Happy

I've watched it several times over the years but I'm still none the wiser. I enjoy the performances and the atmosphere though.Smile

Yes, Corridor People is so weird, it's such a Sixties style of dramatic acting - and totally confusing all the time! John Sharp is creepy as ever and Liz is stylishly evil.
