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.

Ghostly fun!!
25 March 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

i brought the 3 DVD box-set of this, and all the lovely memories came back! what a wonderful series! Every episode is great, To see the Quaint old ghosts rattling about in the empty halls, wondering if they are still there hiding today..... the Hall (Borwick Hall) is in Cheshire i believe, and used today as i understand it as a conference centre... dear old Arthur English has passed on, the General is in Emmerdale, Anyone know where Sheila Matt and Nicolas are at present? Has anyone who worked on the series got any stories to tell, or even better pictures or scripts to post links too... i Heartly recommend this series to everyone, for the older viewers who can have the memories and to the new edition who can enjoy it and pass it onto future generations..
