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.

A Heartfelt Ending
23 June 2018 | by stratus_phereSee all my reviews

This final episode in the three part series was emotional, especially at the end. I won't give anything away, but it was haunting and ghostly, it was tragic and beautiful, and it had its thrilling moments filled with danger.

I don't know why more shows like this aren't made, and I don't know why this show doesn't have a higher rating. I love this!

I'm not normally a fan of flashbacks, and I prefer a story being told in the "now", and not in two timelines. So if that's what puts people off I can understand. But the ghostiness isn't something people should complain about. After all this is a ghost story. It takes place in an old English house in a small northern village. You should expect all the atmosphere and "gothic romance" style plots.

One thing that I liked about this is getting multiple characters involved, going around and talking to people...not too many, but a few here and there, and learning more of the mystery as you go. Some people have secrets, some people are covering things up, some people have lots of information to move the story along.

Great acting, writing, the whole bit. Please do more of this.
