Storyline

In the 1920s Harry Price, a medium and exposer of fake clairvoyants, is approached on behalf of rising MP Edward Goodwin, whose young wife Grace's odd behaviour causes her to believe that their house is haunted and she is being made to obey the commands of ghosts. Goodwin is sceptical, feeling that Grace's problem is psychological, but he will not have her committed - partly so as not to harm his political career - and asks Harry to move in following mysterious, sinister writing on a floor. Helped by sensible housemaid Sarah and opportunistic journalist Vernon Harry researches the house's history, learning it was previously a workhouse where a young boy, Grace's possible ghost, was murdered. However he also discovers personal secrets from the Goodwins' past, which make Grace susceptible to her alleged visions. Written by don @ minifie-1

Separating the real man from the show?
2 January 2016 | by hitchcockthelegendSee all my reviews

Any self respecting British citizen with a bent for the supernatural knows about Harry Price. To see any production on film or television with his name attached instantly gets the knowing excited. This is, as regards this ITV production, more a curse than a blessing.

When Guy Ritchie re-imaged Sherlock Holmes, the most striking thing was that his Holmes and Watson could actually be any buddy buddy duo, the famous names are incidental in that it sells the premise. The same is the case here, this really could just be a British paranormal investigator of his own accord, instead of the makers attributing the Price name just to make an appealing heading.

The pic is a decent spooker, nice period design, safely written - and even though Rafe Spall as Price is oddly cast - it's decently performed. It plods at times, veering close to being boorish with its paranormal literary kinks, but for those without any affinity to the real Harry Price then this is a good watch. Those who who do know their Price onions, on the other hand, will only be left disappointed. 6/10
