With memorable and unsettling opening credits and exceptional performances and direction, Armchair Thriller became a massive hit for Thames Television in the late 1970s and early 1980s. With its trademark ghoulish, razor-sharp cliff hangers and iconic theme tune (by Roxy Music's Andy Mackay), this haunting anthology series was an immediate success, its eerie, disturbing and downright scary tales regularly attracting over 15 million viewers. Each of its ten stories is a gripping exercise in compelling television, showing ordinary people plunged into extraordinary situations. For many, this series remains a high-watermark of dramatic television and its many frightening and spooky moments are remembered by viewers nearly thirty years after its original transmission.

The complete collection of each spooky episode!

 WHEN IS A COMPLETE SERIES NOT COMPLETE?

| | See all phelings's reviews (3)

Fans of the show should note that there were 2 Armchair Thriller serials produced by Southern TV that are not included here - so this should really be called "The Complete Thames Episodes"

 Beware - Incomplete!

Yes, indeed! Network seem to have been unable to get the rights to two of the stories in this great series: High Tide and Dead Man's Kit. Network are otherwise brilliant at this kind of release but they are really rather duplicitous in claiming this to be 'The Complete Series'! Also, as I have continually found, it is impossible to get in touch with them to find out any more information. Disappointing, when their releases are really rather excellent...

 Missing Episodes

With regard to the missing editions of Armchair Thriller: "Dead Man's Kit"; and "High Tide" (both made by Southern Television), they may soon be made available on DVD. Renown Picture has acquired some of the Southern Television library with the intention of releasing many titles. "Dead Man's Kit" is already scheduled for release, so keep your fingers crossed that "High Tide" will follow. Watch this space as I am sure they will be available here at Play.com
