TV Armchair Thriller (ITV 1978-1980, James Bolam, Denis Lawson) Published 3 years ago on May 22, 2016 Armchair Thriller is a very well remembered anthology series that grew out of the Armchair Theatre strand and featured 11 serials (each made up of several episodes each) with a suspenseful theme. A great opening title sequence saw a dust sheet covered chair and a slightly scary shadowy figure approaching. One of the serials, Quiet As A Nun, featured the character of Jemima Shore (created by Antonia Fraser). This was pretty sucessful and led to the series Jemima Shore Investigates starring Patricia Hodge. Actors appearing included Maria Aitken, James Bolam, Denis Lawson, Larry Lamb, Maurice Colbourne, Cherie Lunghi, Ian McShane, Beth Morris, Ian McKellan and a young Patsy Kensit. Stephen Grief in Rachel in Danger.
