Eddie Izzard as Anthony and Larry Mills as Goose.

A terrified six-year-old girl called Milly stands shaking in her pyjamas in the middle of a frozen canal.

As a fireman makes a desperate attempt to save her from the cracking ice.

It’s a heart-stopping, shocking and haunting scene in Lost Christmas, to be screened on BBC1 this Sunday (Dec 18).

SO what did you make of The Day Of The Triffids part one last night?

“We filmed in some amazing locations,” said Dougray Scott, who plays Dr Bill Masen.

Earlier this year, I took part in round table interviews with Dougray and Eddie Izzard (Torrence).

During which Dougray gave his opinion on why this story, first published in 1951, still captures our imagination.

And Eddie spoke about his very first visit to Pinewood Studios, where part of this drama was filmed.
