Sheila Hodgson provides M R James with a ghostly encounter at Christmas.

Derek Jacobi introduces spooky tales by the author M R James

One of his few great passions in life was a fascination for our great English Abbeys. So when he received an invitation to spend Christmas at Medborough Abbey, James accepted without a second thought. But had he known of the strange, supernatural and eventually tragic series of events that were to take place, he might have thought again - or perhaps not...?
