TV Haunted – The Ferryman (ITV 1974, Jeremy Brett, Natasha Parry) Published 3 years ago on May 24, 2016 In The Ferryman successful author Sheridan Owen and his wife Alex take refuge in a hotel during a fierce storm, things take a turn for the strange when it looks like the events of his latest novel are starting to come true. The staff of the hotel all bear a striking resemblance to the characters in his book and Owen becomes convinced that the death by forces unknown of the hotel owner’s daughter is about to play out. A genuinely intriguing and spooky atmosphere hangs over proceedings and there is a great little sting in the tale. The Ferryman was one of two dramas broadcast under the “Haunted” banner over the Christmas 1974 period. A kind of ITV take on the BBC’s Ghost Story for Christmas. The other was called The Poor Girl based on a story by the author Elizabeth Taylor. production details UK / ITV – Granada / 1×60 minute episode / Broadcast 23 December 1974 Writer: Julian Bond / Story: Kingsley Amis / Production Design: Colin Rees / Producer: Derek Granger / Director: John Irvin cast JEREMY BRETT as Sheridan Owen NATASHA PARRY as Alex Owen GEOFFREY CHATER as Miles Attingham LESLEY DUNLOP as Jill Attingham ANDREW BRADFORD as George Partridge RAY MORT as Fred Burge DENISE BUCKLEY as TV Hostess JOHN SAUNDERS as Bookshop Manager AIMEE DELAMAIN as Woman in Bookshop ELIZABETH TYRRELL as Woman Journalist JOHN QUENTIN as Publisher BRUCE BOA as 1st Man at Party ANTHONY WINGATE as 2nd Man at Party HELEN RAPPAPORT as Girl at Party ALICK HAYES as Man In Estate Car KATHY PROCTOR as Waitress Colin ReesGeoffrey ChaterGranadaITVJeremy BrettJulian BondKingsley AmisNatasha ParryParanormalTelefantasyTV Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes20 hours ago Big Texas Fix: Dream House (S1EP7 DIY Sat 25 May 2019) Dream House: Michael and Ashley stumble upon a pre-1900s Victorian home after doing some curbside dumpster diving, so they hit...
