In "The Haunting" (ep. 2-25) Colin (Howard) is about to marry Elizabeth
(Lloyd). Before the big day, Colin and his best friend Peter
(McConnell) go on a winter resort holiday. While skiing, Peter falls
onto a ledge and is injured. He calls up to Colin to help him get out,
but Colin, who has suspected Peter of carrying on with his fiancé
Elizabeth, has other ideas. When Peter asks him to throw down a rope,
Colin does it immediately - both ends. He then leaves Peter to freeze
Later he tells how he was the only person at Peter's funeral since he died so suddenly, so far from home. This has cast a pall on Colin's impending nuptials, since Peter was to be the best man. But despite the offer of putting off the ceremony, Colin insists on plowing ahead.
However, strange things begin to happen, an icy cold wind keeps blowing inside the house, frosting the glass, killing the wedding flowers and finally, making the bride doubt the wisdom of proceeding.
As Newland tells us, this is a true story and the explanation was never found. Colin is eventually carted off to the nut house, telling anyone who will listen that he killed his friend.
Other than a couple of minor problems, this is a good transfer to DVD and the acting is reasonably good. You may recognize Ronald Howard as the star of the 1955 teleseries Sherlock Holmes produced by Motion Pictures for Television. Veronica Cartwrignt has a small part in this.
