Still thrilling after 18 years
8 May 2003 | by See all my reviews



Finally I was able to see this captivating BBC thriller again. It was shown in Finland on August 1985, and I have wanted to see it ever since. The plot involves a British woman Catherine Durrell ,who inherits a farm house and a piece of land in Aalesund, Norway, from a drowned millionaire. Catherine has no idea who this millionaire was, so she travels to Norway to see her legacy. There are a few people who welcome her to her property, but someone (or something) starts to disturb her. The deserted farm house had previously belonged to Freya Jordahl, who had committed suicide years before.

When ever Catherine visits the house she has a feeling that someone was still living there and watching her... at the end, everything about Catherines inheritance is revealed.

That´s all about the plot, but I can say that this BBC thrliller is one of the best I´ve seen, and it still is! I remembered quite many thing from the series, especially the creepy dolls that were inside the farm house. It´s especially the dolls that everyone remembers.

This series is very psycological, captivating and from time to time very horrifying as well. The camera work on the Norwegian fjords is absolutely stunning.

In conclusion, this series has not aged at all during these 18 years, and that´s my honest opinion. Highly recommended!
