    This show is a great favourite of mine.I'm just wondering if any fans out these have any oneoff dramas similar in theme and atmosphere and from roughly the same period?.

    I have, among other things, a great Play For Today from 1977 called The Photograph which reminds me very much of the show.Thanks..

    Thriller is great, I agree.



    As for similar stuff ... you're kind of spoilt for choice.



    There's "Menace" "out of the unknown", "journey into the unknown" and a whole lot more...



    The list starts here...

    How about the 70's ITV series Beasts available via Network DVD. Some (possibly all) written by Nigel Kneale, watched "Baby" the other night which was quite good. However the next one "Buddyboy" was pretty dire, not helped by wooden old Martin Shaw. Wolfe Morris was excellent though, one can but hope the others are better!

    I watched Postmark for Danger based of Francis Durbridge's TV series ''Portrait of Alison''. Good little thriller with an excellent performance from Geoffrey Keen and a luminous one from the beautiful Josephine Griffin ....

    These are both films, but have always had a Brian Clemens "Thriller" feel to them for me, both are worth seeking out.



    Diagnosis Murder - 1975 starring Christopher Lee, Jon Finch and Judy Geeson.



    And



    The Appointment - 1981 starring Edward Woodward and Jane Merrow.

    A couple of my favourite Thriller episodes. The building seen in the opening clip is my fave hotel, The Edgwarebury Hotel, (Now Corus), in Elstree.

    Another Film ; Deadly Strangers, 1974 written by Philip Levene, with Simon Ward and Hayley Mills.

    Sydney Hayers, Peter Jefferey, are involved, and it's from the Avengers / Thriller stable.
