    Hi Erobitha,

    A researcher far more equipped for that appellation than I has tracked down the episode on YouTube (which is ridiculous because I hunted for about a minute on YouTube - who needs more than a minute to find something on YouTube, for goodness sake????????????????).

    The Stone Angels episode on Doctor Who was so terrifying that a young Izzy Iconoclast never watched the programme again. She turned 21 on Monday (two days ago) and still refuses to watch the programme. I feel as nervous about watching this version of Florrie's tale for some reason. It's just so creepy!

          Afternoon Ike, Erobitha,

          I just watched this - and have a feeling I may have seen it back when I would have been sixteen. The story would have meant next to nothing to me in 1970.

          Towards the end, when Sir James has just shuffled off, Maybrick's doctor tells Florie [played by the very lovely Nicola Pagett] that Mrs Pilbeam [?] used the phrase: "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned", but she got it wrong and the original words were by Congreve, not Shakespeare. The doctor adds that James could have told her that, as he had an eye "for an old quotation".

          I wonder if Bongo picked up on this and chose 'O costly...' accordingly. Pity he never mentioned it really.

            Hi Caz,

            If he did, then I bet he also picked-up on the picture on the wall at 44.00 which is rather eerily reminiscent of a certain Mary Jane Kelly death scene. Sort of.

              maybe the woodgrain even helped create the illusion of the M
