Storyline

Lili tells Eve that she has heard through Cribben that Cam has drowned and, after a child's body is dragged from a canal, Gabe goes to London to identify it. Lili meanwhile visits Magda, now old but just as evil, and deduces from holding a photograph of the orphans that Nancy was murdered, a fact of which Percy becomes aware for the first time. However in 1943 Percy informed the local vicar of Cribben's violence and he visited the hall. Appalled at what he saw he threatened to inform the authorities, the deranged Cribben's response being to gas all the children - except Stefan, who kills Cribben before being rescued by Percy and Maurice, who, with Magda, escapes the flood that engulfs the bodies. But the past is not wholly buried as a figure from seventy years earlier returns to the hall for a final sacrifice - before the ghosts of the innocents are laid to rest and the family dog returned.

Ghostly Beatings
26 November 2012 | by See all my reviews

Brilliantly adapted from an excellent book by James Herbert. Worth reading on its own so you know the full details of the plot.

Both Tom Ellis & Suranne Jones are very well cast for their respective roles.

The little girl Cally is fabulous too!! All the main characters are brilliantly cast in their roles.

Doug Henshall makes a great baddie, just by being a quietly menacing and ever so slightly beyond mentally unstable towards the orphans.

There is enough suspense too without resorting to gun toting violence just for a change!!

Great scenery. Excellent Location spotting too.

Would be nice to see other books of this genre to be adapted along the same standards was this drama was.

The BBC have done a good job!!! Well Done
