Did anyone else watch this? Thoroughly creeped out.

Re: Cally, I wondered that!

Wasn't the missing son was called Callum too?

They really should have run the names past MN first!

ToffeeCaramel Wed 21-Nov-12 19:54:21

I think the missing son was called Cam (short for Cameron maybe?) Cally can be short for Caroline, but I'm not sure if it is in this case.

ToffeeCaramel Wed 21-Nov-12 19:56:41

Thread about what Callie can be short for.

Percy took the dog because that ghost man was whipping it obviously.

I think her son is dead but he doesn't know it yet. They'll get rid of the bad man ghost at the end and her ghost son (who drowned in the park lake which is why he has a link to all the ghost children who drowned too) will go off with the nice ghost lady and all the ghost children. She will somehow reveal she always loved Percy and he will be happy.

Oh and I think the bodies of the Jewish boy and the prefect boy are in the well, because they said they'd never found them. I bet the villain was forcing the older one to put the younger one in there as a big punishment, but the older one isn't really as sinister as he seems, just scared because the bad man used to put him in the well too, so he will resist and they will end up both in there together, and they drown there. Maybe with the villain somehow too.
Once they find that out and bury them properly the curse will be lifted.

That's how I would tie it up anyway!!

Volume, dog wasn't being whipped I think, just creeped. They say that animals pick up on things etc.

I'm not going to spoil the ending for you wink

VolumeOfACone Wed 21-Nov-12 20:33:09

I don't want anyone to really spoil the ending!

babesdontlie Wed 21-Nov-12 21:44:49

I've just watched the first episode on iplayer and it scared me!!
The final scene when he puts his face really close to hers when she's sleeping - holy crap on a cracker (as Penny would say in Big Bang Theory)

ToffeeCaramel Wed 21-Nov-12 21:58:29

No I don't want anyone who really knows to tell us, but i like reading the guesses of people who don't know.

ToffeeCaramel Wed 21-Nov-12 22:01:01

I hope Cam is still alive and fine. Maybe he had to disappear for a bit to help the orphans, but then once he has helped them, time will rewind back to the day at the playground and all will be fine and he will never have gone missing.

VolumeOfACone Wed 21-Nov-12 22:10:38

Oh yes time rewinding would be good!

MrsCantSayAnything Wed 21-Nov-12 22:18:48

volume if they never found the bodies that means...to me...that one of them is in fact alive and is responsible for taking the boy. He's hiding within the house or grounds.

Why did Teacher Girl start crying when she saw Stephan's hand? She knew he'd been caned before so it looked like some new discovery. And Maurice's reference to him being bound up(?) or something because he was unwell?

ToffeeCaramel Wed 21-Nov-12 22:40:45

I wasn't sure if he had really been wrapped up to hide the caning on his back. sad but then Maurice saying that rang alarm bells and she looked at his back and saw the caning? Could she have been bound up herself as a child causing the withered arm?

ToffeeCaramel Wed 21-Nov-12 22:45:06

I'm glad there are only three episodes as I don't think I would want more than three lots of being creeped out, especially after the nightmare i had last time of a man standing over me in my bedroom!

MrsCantSayAnything Wed 21-Nov-12 23:22:04

blister I actually think that was a bit of bad direction more than anything.

CanYouHearMe Wed 21-Nov-12 23:25:47

What else has teacher girl been in? It's bugging me.

MrsCantSayAnything Wed 21-Nov-12 23:31:23

Hardly anything Canyou only one series called Blackout and that's it. She's stunning isn't she?

CanYouHearMe Wed 21-Nov-12 23:47:43

Really? I know her from somewhere. Never seen Blackout.

Fiderer Thu 22-Nov-12 07:24:55

I found it scary too. The water on the hall floor and then briefly shown on the stairs must be a clue to someone drowning in the well.
Drowning - water - the Big Flood, maybe that's poor Stefan's revenge on the evil Cribbens.

Was cheering for the teacher slapping Miss Cribbens around the face then marching out with the children.

On a less sad note, I always wanted to do that riding on a boy's bike like the teacher did with Percy.
<wistful>

FamiliesShareGerms Thu 22-Nov-12 07:54:09

I thought it was scary enough...

What was with Suranne's nose? (She was otherwise wonderful. I felt sorry for Mr Tamsin Outhwaite, he didn't have much to do)

RooneyMara Thu 22-Nov-12 09:34:42

What else has that chap been in? (presuming that's Mr Caleigh) I recognise him from something and we normally only have cbbc on smile Sure it isn't that!

DuchessofMalfi Thu 22-Nov-12 09:54:01

He's Miranda's love interest in her comedy.

RooneyMara Thu 22-Nov-12 09:55:35

Hmm.. I haven't seen that. It must be something else. I keep thinking Heartbeat but that can't be right surely...that was on yonks ago!

ToffeeCaramel Thu 22-Nov-12 10:10:50

Doesn't the dad Tom Ellis look like Giles Coren who was in Edwardian Supersize Me. I used to think they were the same person.
