Storyline

Evelyn persuades Paul and a reluctant Ruth to seek help from a priest,Father Boyle,but his main argument,that the couple should try for another child,does not comfort Ruth. Seeing Alice's crucifix on her headstone prompts Ruth to ask for a police investigation but again she gets no satisfaction. Helen and Eddie take Amy to see a psychiatrist,on whose advice they read up on mental disorders but to Amy Alice is only too real,complete with hand prints,and Amy becomes annoyed with her 'friend' for getting her into trouble. Laid up with a broken leg Nisha discovers physical evidence of Alice having lived in the house as well as hearing ghostly noises. Mark advertises for someone to come and help and the advert is answered by Ruth. Written by don @ minifie-1

Compelling
13 February 2011 | by spookie5See all my reviews

Compelling viewing must be one of the best programs on TV at this time.The story is keeping you on your toes here and as we see each part and you think you have got a line on this the twist and turns take you to another area. The whole program gives you food for thought if your thinking of moving into an old house. Very believable. You need to keep with it at the start due to the year sudden changes but this seems to mellow out during the first half hour.It is certainly very well put together and clever how they have done the year changes. Well done ITV something right for once. Some very good acting from well known drama stars. Points to look out for. Grandfather said Alice must have wandered off " She was running at the start of each program and each time we have seen Alice she has been running from something" Mother keeping going on about the duffel coat but " Alice wasn't wearing on when she was running" the little deaf girl was at the grave yard though.
