Made by ABC, and later Thames, television, 'Mystery and Imagination' was a TV series of period dramas that adapted stories and plays from some of the classics of horror fiction[see episode list below]. Classics by such authors as Bram Stoker, Mary Shelley, M.R.James, Sheridan Le Fanu, Oscar Wilde, Edgar Allan Poe etc. The series was filmed in black and white untill the last 3 episodes which were in colour. Some of the early episodes were linked by a character Richard Beckett played by David Buck. Some of the finest actors appeared in Mystery and Imagination such as Denholm Elliott ['Dracula'], Ian Holm ['Frankenstein'], Freddie Jones ['Sweeney Todd'], Gordon Jackson ['Carmilla'], etc.
