With Robin Ellis as Harry Meadows
Murder and violence play an alarming part in Harry Meadows' dreams, in which a character dubbed by his psychoanalyst 'Horrible Harry' shows himself to be cunning, vicious and a winner.

It would seem things could get no worse. but the dreams become even more of a nightmare.
