of Dario Argento. The name of Peter Hutchings loomed large as a star in the firmament of Film Studies. Peter was eventually the external examiner for my doctoral thesis. He seemed a natural choice given his own work in this area (in fact, his chapter ‘The Argento Effect’ was, in part, responsible for my own academic engagement with Argento). Naturally, as soon as Peter was appointed as my examiner I became nervous. This guy was not only a big name in Film Studies but one of the world’s leading

the original thesis and the subsequent book emerged at a time when popular British cinema was receiving scholarly reappraisal, challenging what some perceived as an over-emphasis placed by critics on films of the social realist tradition, in addition to the long-standing – and, looking back, frankly astonishing – belief that British filmmakers lacked ‘a specifically cinematic eye’ or any ‘awareness of form and style’. 2 In years to come things would change. The field of British Film Studies became broader and

, architecture and landscape studies, theatre studies, film studies, cultural studies, and so on. Rather surprisingly however, given this proliferation of Gothic narratives and imagery across popular culture and criticism, very little sustained attention has been paid to what we might term ‘Gothic television’ until this point. This book sets out to fill this gap, to offer an analysis of where and how the genre

The contrasting fortunes of Northern Irish, Scottish and Welsh television drama in the 1990s

Life (1996–97). For a series that stuck around for so long in a decade that saw so much attention to an Irish agenda in British politics, Ballykissangel has received remarkably little serious critical attention. What exists has tended to consider the series, not unreasonably, in relation to the ‘heritage’ tradition that has received so much attention within film studies. In the context of work such as Ronan Bennett’s Love Lies Bleeding (BBC 1993) and lesser examples from three decades of ‘troubles’ drama, the view of Ireland and the Irish presented by

writings on the cinema. At the same time, within the more confined world of academic film studies, ‘auteurism’ is generally perceived as a rather old-fashioned way of thinking about film, one long since superseded by more relevant and exciting approaches. One of the main criticisms of an exclusive focus on the director as source of cinematic meaning and value is that it precludes a proper consideration of
