The Mezzotint | Preview (BBC Two)

It’s 1922 and in the heart of an old English college, Edward Williams receives an engraving of an unknown country house.



An imposing facade. A sweeping lawn. And, just perhaps, something else…? Laced with M. R. James' trademark terror, The Mezzotint will guarantee a chill in the air for viewers this Christmas.




Rory Kinnear (Years & Years, No Time To Die) stars as Williams, alongside Robert Bathurst (Cold Feet, Downton Abbey) as Garwood, and Frances Barber (Doctor Who, Semi-Detached) as Mrs Ambrigail. The Mezzotint also stars John Hopkins (Poldark, Lucky Man), Emma Cunniffe (Roadkill, Unforgotten), Nikesh Patel (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Indian Summers), and Tommaso Di Vincenzo (Dracula).
