The Ghost of Greville Lodge
7 November 2005 | by (Dublin, Ireland) – See all my reviews

The Ghost of Greville Lodge was so enjoyable in every way. I had it taped and watched it over and over. The only fault I could find was with the quality of the sound. Perhaps it was the video tape I was using.

It contained all the necessary ingredients, Fear, sadness and love. Prunella Scales is always guaranteed to give a good performance.

It had a feel of one of those strange things that happen in our lives from time to time and never gets explained.We don't see enough of these type of productions. Lovely location too. I especially like the scene with the Christmas tree. I write short stories from time to time and this has encouraged me to do so more.
