That was based on one of 27 novels by JB Priestley, who was also no slouch in the play-writing department (he knocked out 47). Now, not all of his plays are box-office certs, but An Inspector Calls has proven pretty durable. Less well known are his "Time" plays: three tightly-structured family dramas that play thriller games with past, present and future. The best of these, Dangerous Corner, is back. Definitely worth checking out.
