Chiller image

Starred Phyllis Logan and John Simm. Written as the pilot episode for an anthology series in further collaboration with Lawrence Gordon Clark, director of CHIMERA and of the BBC's classic Ghost Stories for Christmas. Chiller achieved high ratings with its debut episode, Prophecy (see below) but fell victim to the scheduling practice of regularly postponing episodes to make way for sports fixtures.

HERE COMES THE MIRROR MAN was based on Gallagher's BBC Radio Four play THE KINGSTON FILE. Other writers in the series were Glenn Chandler and Anthony Horowitz. Scripts for a second series were commissioned, including an adaptation of the novella TO DANCE BY THE LIGHT OF THE MOON.

CHILLER: PROPHECY (YTV) - 1995

A one-hour adaptation based on the novel by Peter James. Starred Nigel Havers and Sophie Ward.
