Episode 7, "The Case of the Lively Ghost" sees a queer complaint from Madame Richter (Virginia Downing), a phony spiritualist who believes she actually summoned the ghost of Henry Fortescue, sent to Canada by his grieving mother (Dulcie Bowman), who recently was delivered the sad news behind his death by a man named Fenton. Henry's fiancée, Victoria Hibbing (Genine Graham), daughter of Lord Hibbing (Tristan Rawson), is now seeing his lookalike brother Terry (Tony Wright), and everyone has been summoned by Henry's ghost to attend the next seance. Fenton is soon discovered murdered, so Colonel March decides to join the audience in order to ferret out the killer, dead or alive. A plot done to death in prior decades, par for the course for this series.
