Storyline

Motley Hall was built in 1577 and was home to the Uproar family. Empty of living inhabitants, it is home to Five Ghosts from different periods of the Halls history who are compelled to get along with each other as best as they might and try some how to keep the 20th century away from their doorstep that they might remain undisturbed as the sole occupants of their ancestral Hall home.

Spirits Move Me
19 June 2012 | by (London) – See all my reviews

People of a certain age will relish in the warm nostalgic glow of this children's TV series. Written by Richard "Catweazle" Carpenter, these stories are full imagination and spirit (sorry about that!) What really holds the attention is the great ensemble playing by all the main characters. The main set is also very lavish, allowing the characters to live and breathe in all the rooms of Motley Hall. Special mention for Peter Sallis as the much put-upon Caretaker Gudgin. Yes the special effects are basic compared to today's standards, but it's the stories and characters that will continue to charm long after Motley Hall has crumbled to dust! And look here - it seems that Sir George is even on Twitter! (@GeorgeUproar). A ghost who tweets? Bizarre indeed! Get the DVD - and get one for your friend too!
