gotta admit.. this sounds interesting, and might end up watching this.

Supernatural drama series set in Victorian England. When the death of his mother brings Nathan Appleby and his vivacious young wife Charlotte back to the
family estate, they must turn the farm's fortunes around or risk ruin. Though the farm demands his attention, pioneering doctor Nathan finds himself unable
to turn away a vulnerable girl, who is brought to him after seemingly becoming possessed by a terrifying spirit. Though the case is disturbing, Nathan
believes there is always a rational or scientific explanation to be found for life's mysteries, and sets about using every psychological technique he has
to find a way to cure her. But what if Nathan is wrong? What if this is not an illness of the mind? Could the girl actually be haunted?

I watched the first one on the weekend and thought it was decent enough. Will be interesting to see where this goes!

I'm always excited when there's a TV horror series and this one looks especially spooky going off the first episode! Although I hope the ending of the first episode isn't alluding to a situation similar to The Others. Thought the two leads in Colin and Charlotte were excellent though!

I didn't realise the full series had already been put on iPlayer!

I watched the first episode last night I found it really good, I've always been intrigued with ghost/supernatural stories and the setting of the series, costumes and machinery of the time period is just amazing of how people lived in that era. Might watch an episode a night since the whole series is on iPlayer. Also its nice to see Colin Morgan (Merlin) back on TV in another series, he is such a talented actor, and the two leads are just perfect you can see the chemistry between them.

This is really good, seen the whole series, it does throw a few curve balls towards the last 2 episodes and odd in places stick with it, if anyone is watching it at a slow pace. The last episode is just awesome with a great ending it just leaves you wanting more.

One thing I do like throughout this series, is the music, its so haunting and celtic.

I watched the first episode, it was okay. Can someone explain to me what happened at the end of the first episode though? I think I understood it, but I was only paying half attention.

You just catch a glimpse of a girl, but if you blink you might just miss her. Without giving too much away

I found myself getting a little bored with this and I'm not really in any hurry to watch unless there's nothing on / nothing to do.

Yeh, I'm still watching every Tuesday night but it just seems to be in the background. I'm not as interested in it as I thought I would be but hopefully it steps up next week with the modern day girl apparently appearing!
