Filmed in and around King's College, Cambridge, and on the Suffolk coast, “Wits in Felixstowe” looks at the genesis, influences and setting of MR James's supernatural masterpiece 'Oh, Whistle, and I'll Come to You, My Lad.'  

Writer and presenter Robert Lloyd Parry takes a fresh look at James’s character, and find behind the academic and bibliophile, a man surrounded by diverse and intriguing friends: the millionaire Liberal Felix Cobbold, the phenomenally prolific essayist Arthur Benson and the tragic publisher, poet and Ripper suspect J K Stephen.
