“Listen. Mari Lwyd. White as moonlight. Rattle-bagged and broken backed. Steed of winter who the pale men carry.

“Who are those that squire you? Slow and ceaseless, yard by yard, house by house, and door by door.”

The Mari Lwyd is a fine Welsh Christmas Tradition - the skeleton of a horse roams the streets, begging to be let in for food and warmth. Once she knocks, only the most cunning can send her away.

Ianto Jones has come to a remote village for a quiet Christmas. But the Mari Lwyd has come knocking. And she’s real.

Recorded on: 4 August 2021
Recorded at: Remote recording and Southsea Sound


The Grey Mare has some sweet, often sad character beats and plenty of atmosphere and tension. There are moments that are genuinely unsettling and the Mari Lwyd is such a vivid piece of horror, it’s sure to have you looking up the Welsh legend online once the story has ended.

We Made This

This is Torchwood, especially these small cast plays, at its best. Clever and subtle, thematically brawny but light on its feet. A highlight of a consistently strong, consistently inventive range. 9/10
