Gothic television

Helen Wheatley

Published by Manchester University Press

  • The first book to consider the appearance of the Gothic on television
  • Contributes to the field of 'horror studies' and adds to the growing literature on the genres of horror generally
  • Combines detailed archival research with analyses of key programmes, from 'Mystery and Imagination' and 'Dark Shadows', to 'The Woman in White' and 'Twin Peaks', and uncovers an aspect of television drama history which has remained critically unexplored
  • Written in a style that is intellectually engaging whilst avoiding jargon
