Haunting

An enchanting performance by Simon Callow. Best listened in the dark on Christmas Eve with nothing but the tree lights to cast shadows in the corners.

Fantastically chilling!

A perfect seasonal treat at this time of year. A good selection of tales, excellent sound design and superbly narrated. And I loved the bonus ghost story within the rest...
