Thriller is an anthology series of single plays – some horrific, some terrifying – but always with a singular twist in the tale. Highly-popular and very critically acclaimed in its time, the ATV production attracted a high calibre of stars – Robert Powell, Jeremy Brett, John le Mesurier, Patrick Troughton, Helen Mirren, Diana Dors, Charles Gray, Denholm Elliott and Brian Blessed to name a few. With tales ranging between foreign agents and time-bending serial killers (and all points inbetween!), Thriller set a new benchmark for quality horror in the 1970s.

This set contains the complete of run of 43 episodes from across the six series.
