Three Cases Of Murder

Two ghost stories sandwich a whodunit in this three-director portmanteau

Two ghost stories sandwich a whodunit in this three-director portmanteau.

Orson Welles hams up the longest as a Foreign Secretary whose Welsh MP enemy invades his dreams.

But the standout is Wendy Toye’s opener, a chilling gem of bleak terror with a museum attendant lured into a painting. Despite Welles, acting honours go to Alan Badel, who features in all three episodes.

Top extra is Return To Glennascaul, a spooker in which Welles appeared as a favour to Dublin’s Abbey Theatre.
