Hammer House of Mystery & Suspense
A 2nd series of Hammer House of Horror was planned in 1982 consisting of 13 ninety minute indiviual episodes. Titles included "Half a Pound of Tuppenny Cyanide","The Lady is for Burning" and "Death Wrapped for Christmas", but none made their way into the finished series. Twentieth Century-Fox Television provided finance for the newly titled series "Fox Mystery Theatre" with the condition that each episode would be made for 90 minute tv slots and that they should contain little graphic horror content (hardly in the Hammer tradition!).
