Archtypical Haunting

What did you love best about A Neighbour's Landmark?

James's use of the trial as historical background upon which to draw really brings out verisimilitude; often confusing the line between story and legal fact. This technique captures the essence of James's writing and this story in particular is subtle and frightening.

What about David Collings’s performance did you like?

David Colling's is excellent and his performance spare. Well done!
