"Nigel Kneale invented popular television" --Mark Gatiss

Since the earliest days of British television drama, scriptwriter Nigel Kneale has been a seminal figure. His Quatermass serials for the BBC were a seismic event in the 1950s, before finding international success when adapted by Hammer Films for the big screen. Later TV plays, such as The Road, The Stone Tape and The Year of the Sex Olympics, skilfully blend elements of science fiction and the ghost story. They remain classics and Kneale himself a great influence on popular culture.

Revised and updated, this new edition of INTO THE UNKNOWN: THE FANTASTIC LIFE OF NIGEL KNEALE, by Andy Murray, charts Nigel Kneale's extraordinary career, from his childhood on the Isle of Man, to his fraught days at the BBC, strange adventures in Hollywood, and his status as legend to legions of fans. It draws on a wealth of research and many hours of interviews with Kneale himself, as well as prominent admirers. These include John Carpenter, Ramsey Campbell, Grant Morrison, Russell T Davies, and Mark Gatiss and Jeremy Dyson of the League of Gentlemen.



A prolific writer and critic with a particular interest in cult British film and television, Andy Murray programmed the annual Darkness Over Britain screenings at Manchester’s Cornerhouse and was consultant to the BBC4 documentary The Kneale Tapes.

“A pioneer in science fiction" John Carpenter
