BBC Two’s 30 minute drama The Tractate Middoth will premiere on Christmas Day (Wednesday December 25th) at 9:30pm, it has been announced.
Based on the M.R. James story of the same name and penned by Mark Gattiss, The Tractate Middoth is set in a quiet academic library where John Eldred seeks out the help of young Mr Garrett in his search for a seemingly obscure Hebrew text. But there is something unusual about this book and something not entirely scholarly about Eldred’s intentions. Soon, Garrett’s hunt for the Tractate Middoth provokes terrifying apparitions in the library and a vengeful menace from beyond the grave. The drama is produced by CAN DO Productions and stars Una Stubbs (Sherlock), Sacha Dhawan (Being Human), John Castle (I, Claudius), Louise Jameson (Doctor Who), David Ryall (The Village), Eleanor Bron (Absolutely Fabulous), Nick Burns (Nathan Barley) and Roy Barraclough (Coronation Street)
