Other visitors that day were a party of school-girls from Blythe Mount school, where Morse goes, to find two teachers and seven girls staying there for the summer vacation. After he has left he finds a note reading 'Save Me' stuffed into his pocket. He learns that exactly a century earlier the school, then a private house, was the scene of the unsolved murders of the Blaise-Hamilton family, former owners of the dagger. Soon afterwards sensitive pupil Bunty disappears after hearing ghostly music played in the night. Headmistress Miss Symes tells Morse that the spectre of Charlotte Blaise-Hamilton is said to haunt the school and both Morse and teacher Miss Danby believe they have seen her. Morse contacts Stephen Fitzowen, who wrote a book about the murders and who reports that Weiss was keen to see him before he died and Fitzowen and Morse mount a ghost watch, during which there is another...

Trivia

Bright says "we're not going to argue like Burke and Hare over the body of a murdered child." Burke and Hare were 19th century Scottish murderers who killed people in order to sell the corpses to the anatomists at the medical school in Edinburgh. See more »

Goofs

At the time when it is supposed to take place no nurse was allowed to wear her uniform outside of the hospital (unless a District Nurse or a Midwife). Young Morse's next-door neighbor, the nurse with whom he has a long-standing soft-spot is often seen wearing her uniform. In Morse she was played by a white actress. See more »

Full of mystery and suspense

This episode starts with the history of an estate where several people were killed a long time ago.

It then becomes a school for girls. It has a summer schools that parents send their kids to when they have no where to send them.

A murder takes place in a nearby museum the day the school teacher takes her class to the museum from this all girls school. The man's throat was slashed that does genealogy history.

Morse and his boss Thursday start to investigate to see if any of the girls that went to the museum that day saw anything or anyone they could tell the police about.

Later at the school young girls start to go missing. The lights start to flicker when some one is doing something in the school. The adults and kids start to think it is ghost from the past because visions of young girls show up with dresses made from old times.

Morse starts to connect the death of the man with a genealogy history he was doing for an American couple.

This episode is very scary and often hard to understand because of the list of the way they explain what is going on and also because of the English accent which is not always clear.

It is a good episode. You would have to watch it more than once to understand it but it will keep you on edge and tense a lot of the time while waiting for final the killer to be revealed.
