When Whicher offers to help a country lady find her niece, he's drawn into a disturbing case of murder which brings him up against wealthy and powerful figures and throws him into conflict with his former police colleagues.
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

A TV-movie about Britain's real-life ghost hunter and skeptic Harry Price, who investigated tales of the paranormal and supernatural.
"You see that, don't you? It looks like she's holding someone's hand." This was not what I expected or wanted, but it was a decent watch. The story stands out for me, with a great twist that was predictable...it made for something to watch all the way through. I cannot call it any type of horror movie, though and that's what I wanted. There's a movie called "The Awakening"...that's what I was looking for. Seek enlightenment elsewhere if you want to be scared. If you are looking for a slow burn drama with some paranormal vapor, this is a decent choice.
