The Christmas Box

Christmas television is a traditionally hit and miss affair, combined in equal part fabulous special occasion and tiresome old tattiness, but in amongst the repeats of old movies and trite kids’ specials, there’s a wealth of hidden gems to be uncovered.

Join Paul Magrs as he takes an informed, if idiosyncratic, journey through the world of festive TV, picking out the highlights of his own lifetime of watching…

Sapphire and Steel Assignments I & II

“Let’s waken the dead, shall we?”

A remote cottage, where Time threatens the lives of two children.  The war dead return to haunt the living at an abandoned railway station.  Sapphire & Steel burst on television screens in 1980 with two iconic slices of folk horror, setting a high standard for the fondly remembered but all too brief series which followed.
Sapphire and Steel Assignments III & IV
“One foot up and the other foot down, which is the way to London town?”
A family from the future are hunted by the animal they have inadvertently brought back in time.  A man with no face uses photographs to trap the unwary.
Sapphire & Steel takes its first step into straight science-fiction, as the agents confront a young couple from 1500 years in the future, and their Changeling baby, before coming up against perhaps the most striking and well-remembered character in the series, the faceless Shape and his nursery rhyme chanting ‘children’.
Sapphire and Steel Assignments V & VI

“Time, when it’s been tampered with to this extent, tries to counteract things!”

A murder mystery in a stately home set up to mimic the world of half century previously.  A deadly confrontation for Sapphire and Steel (and Silver) in a motorway services cafe.
The only Sapphire & Steel story not written by Peter Hammond, an homage to the Golden Age detective novels of Agatha Christie, is followed by the series finale, a surreal tale which even now, almost forty years later, still divides viewers.
