Summary

CHARLES DICKENS enjoyed entertaining his friends with readings of ghost stories, especially at Christmas time. In his classic tale The Signalman, the then high technology world of steam railway comes to contact with what looks like a good old fashioned haunting. A night at a desolate country inn dramatically changes Tom Smart's fortunes in The Bagman's Story. Together with Christmas Ghosts and Mr Testator’s Visitation, these tales are fine examples of Dickens’s spine-chilling talents.

These stories are read for you by RADA trained Nigel Lambert, a member of the National Theatre who has made numerous appearances for the BBC in fields as varied as classic drama and children’s television and Richard Mitchley who has worked in theatres throughout Britain as well as the BBC and ITV and his own Mayfly Theatre company.

Good short ghost stories.

Short ghost stories beautifully read.
It felt like this is Dickens coming up with some ideas and testing them out. Pretty cool if you like Dickens.
