Series: The Wilde Alliance / Episode 4 of 13

In Things That Go Bump Rupert’s agent Christopher buys a run down house in the country and is convinced he has seen a ghost there, he persuades the Wildes to spend the night in the place to find out if the place is haunted. All three of them end up getting a little more than they bargained for.

More akin to a Famous Five than a Hammer House of Horror and all the better for it but with a nice twist at the end that the ghost might just have been real. Good to see Marius Goring popping up as chief villain too!
