This is the 35th adaptation for film/TV of the Henry James novella The Turn of the Screw. A movie remake telling a modern version of the tale called The Turning (2020) was released in theaters a few months before this series premiered. See more »
Bly Manor has North American early 20th century push button light switches and sockets throughout the building despite being set somewhere in Essex, England. Buildings electrified in early 20th century England would have had toggle switches and round two pin sockets. By the 1980s, when the series is set, there would have been modern UK sockets and switches if the building had ever been rewired. Henry's office and Peter's flat have the correct UK switches.

This story has so many turning points ,just like the hill house and the growth of each character is just "perfectly splendid". You will laugh ,you will fear,and you definitely would love on how gradually and mysteriously the story grows. They actually did save the best for the last . The story has so many folds and yet doesn't loose it's touch of sense and keeps us guessing what's going on . The last 2 episodes joins all the loose ends , solves all the mysteries and answers all the questions that you have in your mind since the 1st episode. You might find yourselves confused about what's happening and how it's happening ,and the show writers have done a great job letting us guess and wonder on what's going ,that even if we are right ,there is another twist to that theory.
This was a show of beautiful writing, beautiful acting and most importantly ,a show that ends with peace .
