A Spocklight Ghost Story for Christmas: The Canterville Ghost
In a very special Christmas edition of the podcast, the Spocklight crew discuss the 1996 TV movie adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s The Canterville Ghost starring Sir Patrick Stewart as suggested by one of our listeners (and if any of you Spocklighters out there have suggestions for future episodes we'd love to hear from you!)
We crack open a bottle of the finest port as we trace the history of the Christmas Ghost Story tradition and the various different adaptations of ‘The Canterville Ghost’ over the decades while chatting the lack of scares, the attempts at broad humour and how a dark mid-point revelation makes Stewart’s character rather difficult to root for.
Merry Christmas from everyone at Spocklight!
