Although recognised as part of Roger Corman's Edgar Allan Poe cycle (its title comes from a Poe poem), The Haunted Palace has a much more significant place in film history for being the first high-profile adaptation of the work of H.P. Lovecraft, in this case his novella The Case of Charles Dexter Ward. Ward is one of two characters played by Vincent Price, the other being Ward's great-great-grandfather Joseph Curwen, burned as a warlock 110 years before. When Ward returns to the village of Arkham to reclaim the family mansion, his striking resemblance to his ancestor... is just the first of many macabre events that proceed to unfold, including the screen debut of Lovecraft's legendary Necronomicon. As before, Corman and his team worked wonders with their modest budget, with Daniel Haller's sets amongst the most elaborate in all the Poe cycle, enhanced by genuinely creepy moments such as the crowd of deformed villagers still living under Curwen's curse.

There were never two more unlikely sisters than working class heroines Sharon (Pauline Quirke) and Tracey (Linda Robson). Along with their friend and lodger, man-eater Dorien Green (Lesley Joseph), they're back for another series of laugh-out-loud and bittersweet adventures. Kicking off with a promised Christmas trip to Tenerife, courtesy of Dorien's continued income as 'Sixty Shades of Green' author Foxy Cohen, the Birds share their many successes and failures, including Sharon's interview to become a spy, Tracey's trip to jail and a traditional cockney knees-up with London's Pearly Kings and Queens. But there are life-changing surprises too as Dorien comes face-to-face with someone she thought she'd never see again and a heart-stopping scare for both the Chigwell sisters in a poignant and hilarious two-part finale.
