In the new episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, an historical epic that never got the sequels it deserved, and a serial killer thriller that deserved more too.

Master & Commander: The Far Side Of The World was eventually helped into life by a studio chief who really believed in it – but the much-loved movie hit box office traffic.

As did Copycat, released in the slipstream of Seven, yet it’s a rare film in the genre with two female leads working on the same side. That, however, was not the original idea.

Stories of both are told in this episode.
