Spotted it in the schedule, but missed most of it, so can't really pass judgement.

Although I would say that it seemed an original idea for a drama.

I wonder how many people these days have heard of Harry Price? Not many, probably.

Did any particular aspect of it impress you Ken?

Happy New Year to all,

Didn't watch this myself but have read the book by Neville Spring, that it was based on,which I thoroughly enjoyed.

It was a good story with a few twists. Well acted in the main, With the exception of the girl who was haunted. I particularly liked the way it started, don't want to say to much and give anything away.

I wasn't that familiar with him but mary googled him and has been filling me in.

Oh and a happy new year to everyone

I read it too. Thought it was a really great read. I especially like his refutation of the "eye for an eye" philosophy. Really hope the show makes it to Australia.

Further to this, Ken, Duncan, Alan and others may be interested to know that the current (March 2016) issue of Fortean Times includes a three-page feature on the historical accuracy (or otherwise) of the Harry Price TV drama.
