PR: The Intruder: The Complete Series [Network]

Uncanny, unsettling and enigmatic, The Intruder is a mystery series originally aimed at a teenage audience, yet its theme of a disturbing loss of identity – personified in the character of an isolated teenage boy – makes for compelling viewing at any age.

Adapted from John Rowe Townsend’s multi-award-winning children’s novel and produced by BAFTA winner Peter Plummer, whose credits include the highly acclaimed The Owl Service, this intriguing, atmospheric series is made available here for the first time in its entirety. It has been transferred from its original film materials specifically for this release.

Arnold Haithwaite is a pilot – a sand pilot. He pursues his strange and solitary profession on the sands of Cumbria, beside the Irish Sea. A sand pilot, like a sea pilot, must know his way about; he must have a strong sense of locality and identity. But now another figure haunts this strange landscape: a sinister intruder who claims to be the real Arnold Haithwaite...

Smashing, another one from the "Look Back" releases, it's certainly a very good one, hadn't seen it since the 70's.

Hopefully, "Jamie", "Nobody's House", and "The Flaxton Boys" will appear sometime.

There was another good serial from Granada, in 1980, called "Watch All Night", on Sundays, with Lucinda Bateson, that would be good to see again.

A good contemporary twist on the "So Long At The Fair" urban myth. Yes I'd like to see that again.
