It also has a strong supporting cast and special effects that enhance but don't overwhelm. 120m/C VHS, DVD . Patrick Stewart, Richard E. Grant, Joel Grey, Saskia Reeves, Desmond Barrit, Bernard Lloyd, Tim Potter, Ben Tibber, Dominic West, Trevor Peacock, Liz Smith, Elizabeth Spriggs, Laura Fraser, Celia Imrie; D: David Hugh Jones; W: Peter Barnes; C: Ian Wilson; M: Stephen Warbeck.
