The Legacy: Gothic Influence on Television
- 138 Downloads
The history of the many celebrated British television adaptations of Gothic material, such as Jonathan Miller’s Whistle and I’ll Come to You and the long-running Ghost Story for Christmas strand on BBC TV, is a prestigious one. Other fondly remembered dramas include the popular adaptations of Charles Dickens’ ghost stories and stand-alone single plays, such as Nigel Kneale’s genre-stretching The Stone Tape. Kneale’s significant influence on many of his successors continues to this day with the revived Doctor Who, which routinely rewrites and recycles his Gothic and science-fiction tropes.
