Network Distributing To Release THE SCOTLAND YARD MYSTERY on DVD on 31st August 2015


A classic thriller with a brilliantly macabre twist, The Scotland Yard Mystery (12) is the story of the battle between a resourceful detective and a skilful and sinister swindler. It is released on DVD on 31st August 2015, RRP £9.99, courtesy of Network’s ‘The British Film’ collection.

Sexton Blake star George Curzon plays a doctor who uses his unique medical knowledge to mastermind a lucrative life insurance scam. In a rare film role, legendary thespian Gerald du Maurier (Escape!, The Rise Of Catherine The Great) stars as the Metropolitan Police Commissioner who sets out to uncover the secret of five empty coffins and catch the villainous swine responsible for such depravities.

Directed with characteristic verve by Thomas Bentley (David Copperfield, Murder At The Baskervilles), The Scotland Yard Mystery is featured here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.

I love practical effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Yakuza Zero and Mafia III.
