Hammer House of Mystery and Suspense

Hammer House of Mystery and Suspense – 1984

Hammer House of Mystery and Suspense is a short-lived (one season) anthology television series produced in Britain in 1984/85 by Hammer Studios. Though similar in format to the 1980 series Hammer House of Horror, the Mystery and Suspense series had feature-length episodes, usually running around 70 minutes without commercials.

The series was a co-production by Hammer Studios with 20th Century Fox Television (as was the 1968 anthology series Journey to the Unknown), and is known in the United States as Fox Mystery Theatre. Unlike 1980’s Hammer House of Horror, it was first aired in the UK by ITV in 1984, though was not simulcast and was shown in different timeslots (and a different running order) throughout the various ITV regions.

Two of the episodes, “A Distant Scream” and “In Possession”, were remakes of stories that had been made for the fourth season of the BBC anthology series Out of the Unknown.
