Dr. Douglas Monaghan and his his two assistants investigate the case of Carol Fleming, a personal friend of Monaghan's, who sees her double, Helen Reid, at a local museum.

When they realize that they are the same age and have the same birth date, they realize they must be twins. Monaghan is interested in Carol's dreams where she sees herself and twin girls watching a doll's house burning. He invites Carol and Helen to come to the lab to see if they have a telepathic connection as well and they score an almost unbelievable 100% on the test. After an auto accident in which her husband is killed, Helen moves in with Carol temporarily but but Carol begins to worry when her husband shoes an interest in her identical twin.

3 February 2004
Helen can't understand why Carol would put her ideal home situation in jeopardy by having an affair with Mike and even impersonates her sister to break off the relationship. She's also studying the intricate details of Carol's childhood. When her boyfriend Mike is murdered, Carol has feelings of guilt and Monaghan isn't sure if she might be unstable. As Monaghan's assistants look into Helen's background and childhood, they begin to realize that she is the one who may be seriously disturbed. It becomes obvious that one is setting the other up for Mike's murder and it's left to Monaghan to sort out who is who and who has done what to whom.

Season 1, Episode 3: Mind Over Matter: Part 1

9 February 2004
Psychologist Dr. Douglas Monaghan and his assistants Megan Sharma and Dr. Andrew Gemill investigate paranormal phenomena, specifically the transference of souls from the dead to the living or, more simply, reincarnation. After an unsuccessful trip to Lebanon where a young boy apparently had detailed memories of another's life, they're faced with the case of 6 year old Joe Quinn who starts to have memories of another life belonging to someone named George: a home by a lake; that his "other mummy" had red hair; and of a drowning. Is he however remembering a past life? Joe's mother is skeptical about the whole thing but when they locate the lake Joe keeps referring to, additional information comes to light.

10 February 2004
Having concluded that the George young Joe has been referring to is in fact Georgina McKay who disappeared six years ago, the investigators tell the missing girl's mother about their reincarnation theory. This doesn't sit well with the woman who clings to the hope that her daughter is still alive. As Joe begins to recall more about Georgina's life, the information begins to point to her father as her possible murderer. The police re-open the investigation into the girl's disappearance when they find her body in the loch - exactly where Joe told them to look. However, Dr. Monaghan thinks that Georgina's spirit may in fact be out for revenge.

When she returns to the house the next day with the police, something is clearly wrong.

Season 2, Episode 1: Amulet: Part 1

8 January 2005
Findley Morrison seeks Dr. Douglas Monaghan's assistance when strange things happen in his house. All family members, including his wife Carol, son Dominic and daughters Claire and Martha have heard noises, experienced doors opening or closing and perhaps even seen images of someone moving about, though never clearly. Douglas and his assistant Justine McManus spend some time in the house and they too begin to experience some of these strange occurrences. They are also beginning to see the numbers 2976 being repeated. Douglas believes that if there is a poltergeist in the house, it will likely focus its activities on one of the occupants and the evidence begins to point to the Morrisons' eldest daughter Claire. As more information becomes available however and they begin to ask more pointed questions, Carol Morrison abruptly asks them to leave.

It turns out the Morrisons paid her tuition as well. Douglas still thinks that Claire is the focus of any paranormal activity and decides to test her.

Douglas Monaghan welcomes back one of his former students, Peter Locke, now a professor who has made quite a name for himself in North America. Craig Stephenson studies the case of John Wade, a self-styled mentalist who has a successful stage show. Although he amazes his audiences, he is clearly using well-worn techniques to correctly guess information of audience members. There are a few anomalies however. Justine McManus meanwhile travels to a psychiatric hospital to investigate the case of a woman who claims she is the survivor of a shipwreck that occurred in 1904 - but only washed ashore in 2004.

John Wade is convinced that he can cure young Chloe Williams of her brain tumor. Craig Stephenson is quite skeptical but newly arrived Peter Locke isn't and is quite keen to study the case. As they learn more about John's background and family history, they realize there may be a more than reasonable explanation for his behavior, though not all can be explained away. Justine McManus goes to Patience Green's home village and finds that it is much as she described it. Her knowledge of the locality and of the people who lived there is astounding but Patience does make one slip that leads Justine to believe there is an explanation for both her condition and her degree of knowledge about the community.

At the end of the 19th century Robert Dunbar, a spiritualist, occupied the home and he may have decoded a cipher manuscript that was central to the Order. As Monaghan researches the history of the house he learns that it has a macabre history including the previous owner who was found dead at the bottom of the stairs and Dunbar himself who killed his wife and was hung for it.
