Join Jonny Larkin and special guest star Steve Hughes as we delve into the archives of British TV horror once more. This time we turn our attention to Tales of the Unexpected, a cornucopia of creepy delights that ran from 1979-1988. Initially conjured up by Roald Dahl, it gave us macabre stories featuring the likes of Joan Collins, Miriam Margoyles and… Toyah Willcox? ‘The Flypaper’ stands out from the bunch with its bleak portrayal of a teenage girl stalked by a perverted killer, and the twist in its tale left a generation scarred for life! Hear all about it here, along with some pretty filthy banter regarding the likes of Gareth Hunt, John Duttine and… Kevin Webster from Coronation Street?
