Storyline

Eve Caleigh has a telepathic connection with her 5 year old son Cam though this is lost when he suddenly disappears. A year later,in line with husband Gabe's new job the family - daughters Cally and Loren - moves up country and into rented Crickley Hall,a grim mansion run as an orphanage in the 1940s by sadistic siblings Magda and Augustus Cribben. Young teacher Nancy Linnet was shocked by their religion-motivated cruelty but powerless to prevent it. Elderly Percy Judd,who also worked at the orphanage,visits the Caleighs and explains that in 1943 the nearby village was flooded, with huge loss of life,hence the many gravestones in the church yard. Inexplicably Percy steals the Caleighs' dog. All the family starts to see ghosts from the orphanage especially violent Augustus Cribben. Everybody wants to move out except Eve,who believes that Cam is trying to reach her again. Written by don @ minifie-1

Excellent start
12 October 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Based on the novel of the same name by James Hurbet. Eve Caleigh (The awesome Surrane Jones) has a telepathic connection with her 5 year old son Cam though this is lost when he suddenly disappears. A year later,in line with husband Gabe's new job the family - daughters Cally and Loren - moves up country and into rented Crickley Hall,a grim mansion run as an orphanage in the 1940s by sadistic siblings Magda and Augustus Cribben. The story hops back in time to the 40's when a Young teacher Nancy Linnet (Olivia Cooke) was shocked by their religion-motivated cruelty but powerless to prevent it, and the present day as Eve and her family try to unlock the secrets to Crickley Hall.

Part 1 of the 3 part series gets off to an excellent start. Surrane Jones absolutely knocks it out of the park as does Olivia Cooke and young Maisie Williams as Jones's eldest daughter Loren, who has to put up with school bullies as well as ghosts. I first noticed Williams giving an excellent performance as Arya Stark in 'Game Of Thrones' and here she is again superb. I expect big things from this girl. David Warner is also worthy of note, giving a good performance too. I look forward to the next episode.
