Ooh er creepy...!

That was good. But I'm watching a comedy to calm down now so I can sleep grin.

It was good !

ooh, I thought it was the Peak District, am oddly pleased I was right. Laughed at the way they all went to bed in separate rooms after the scary goings on - I'd have been insisting on everyone sleeping in the same room, if not the same bed! Missed the start so didn't see what appears to have been the most harrowing part.

Thank you smile

I really enjoyed it. Just the right mix of incredibly creepy with a good story.

I hope I remember to watch it next week.

YY to not going back to bed in separate rooms though!

Yes it is the little girl from the oreo advert.

Dillydollydaydream Sun 18-Nov-12 22:34:26

I'm going to have to watch this. I've read the book so I know what happens though. It's not too scary I hope?!

Very creepy. <Mentally takes stock of all ghost weapons in the house>

MacAndCheese Sun 18-Nov-12 22:44:18

What happens in the book?!

legoqueen Sun 18-Nov-12 23:18:48

Thanks incogneetow, I thought Yorkshire but my husband thought Derbyshire...both with similar buildings & geographical features. I couldn't watch this if I was home alone, it's haunting & sad on so many levels...

PenguinBear Sun 18-Nov-12 23:36:42

Anyone read the book and able to message me the ending please?

MrsTomHardy Sun 18-Nov-12 23:48:48

Omg...just watched it on my own on my iPhone in the dark grin

Loved it!
Didn't know it was a book too

MrsTomHardy Mon 19-Nov-12 16:43:37

grin

It was great tho, can't wait for next episode

It looks like it was filmed in a place called Downham (I was brought up round there), which is Lancashire.

Yes, enjoyed this, nice and creepy. Though I couldn't figure out why when the older daughter had seen the ghost, they all went back to their separate rooms to sleep. Wouldn't you all sleep in the same room after that?

germyrabbit Mon 19-Nov-12 21:45:14

i quite liked it but hope it doesn't turn into the film 'the orphanage'.

MrsTomHardy Mon 19-Nov-12 22:42:55

Yeah I thought that Notgood

Like hell would I go back to sleep full stop.

edam Mon 19-Nov-12 23:03:42

imdb says filmed in Greater Manchester, so Crockle's probably closest to the actual location.

edam Mon 19-Nov-12 23:05:14

They weren't very bothered about their dog going missing, either. I mean, I'm sure if you've lost a child it puts losing a dog into perspective but you'd expect some concern, maybe even added anguish because the kids have already lost their brother and now the ruddy dog's gone too!

AitchTwoOhOneTwo Tue 20-Nov-12 20:14:17

i couldn't watch it, had to switch it off. it was nasty, obvious and exploitative imo. fair enough on ITV...

Oblomov Tue 20-Nov-12 20:19:41

Agree with Edam, couldn't work out why they didn't make more if the dog going missing. Can't see where they are going with this, though. Is it going to be a total anti-climax and totally naff-ola?

edam Tue 20-Nov-12 20:21:22

I suppose you could get hold of the Herbert story, but I'd rather wait for the next episode, don't want to spoil it!
