Not So Abounding Faceless Automatons And Not-Quite-So-Mainstream Crafting: Wanderings #17/52a - A Year In The Country
In my head 1970s/early 1980s British television is awash with faceless creatures and automatons, come to carry out their wickedness and fill dreams full of night terrors. But funnily enough when I recently(ish) looked up such things, there weren't all that many I could find. Actually it came down to a creature/character in Sapphire & Steel and the "still terrifying all these years later" shop dummies come to life in Doctor Who (which strictly speaking aren't faceless but in my head they are). I suppose that as an effect it was cheap and relatively easy to do but there is still something particularly unnerving about such featureless faces.
