THE ANATOMIST / Associated-Rediffusion Television - 1956

It's Friday Fright with Tabonga, here at The Dungeon! What we gots is the English TV version of the infamous Burke and Hare (body snatchers) story. It focuses on the Dr. Knox character, the man who wants fresh corpses for his classes. It stars the great Alastair Sim as Dr. Knox, Diarmuid Kelly as Burke and Dungeon fave Michael Ripper as Hare...

Eegah!! sent over a nice lil' soundclip from the production, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button located there next to the atomic soda fountain, NOW, Rufus The Gnat! Here's our audio offering for... THE ANATOMIST!

Dr. Knox starts the program off with some insight into skulls, it happens to be one of the finest examples they've ever examined!

Dr. Knox teaches anatomy classes, thus, the title... THE ANATOMIST!

Burke and Hare are a pair of lowlife entrepreneurs out to make a few illegal bucks helping out local doctors with dead bodies to work on... Smoke 'em if you got 'em!

Dr. Knox is actually a loveable old kook at times!..

But, whenever the doc gets blunt with one of his students, or, they get dumped by their girl, they go running for the comfort of a busty barfly in the nearby pub.

Burke and Hare, up to their devious deeds as usual!

One of their sugardaddys cuts them off due to their incompetence...

So, they grab the easiest target available for some quick cash from Dr. Knox, if you catch my drift!

When it's discovered by students that the girl was murdered by the two creeps, well, all Hell breaks loose!
