Something wicked this way comes…
Legendary scriptwriter Brian Clemens is probably most well- known for his work on THE AVENGERS and THE PROFESSIONALS, but arguably his best work is THRILLER - a series he made for Lew Grade in the mid-70s. THRILLER is an anthology series of single plays – some horrific, some terrifying – but always with a singular twist in the tale. Highly-popular and very critically acclaimed in its time, THRILLER attracted a high calibre of stars – Robert Powell, Jeremy Brett, John le Mesurier, Patrick Troughton, Helen Mirren, Diana Dors, Charles Gray, Denholm Elliott and Brian Blessed to name a few. With tales ranging between foreign agents and time-bending serial killers (and all points inbetween!), THRILLER set a new benchmark for quality horror in the 70s.
