Things That Go Bump


Director: Marc Miller

Writer: Philip Broadley

Rôle: Rex

Broadcast:February 1978 Yorkshire Television

Synopsis: Christopher, Rupert's literary agent and friend, buys a long-empty, old house with a view to renovating it and selling it. On his first night he sees, and talks to, a woman who has appeared in the house despite all the doors being locked. She asks for a glass of water but when he comes back with one she has gone. He is sure she is a ghost and, later, he hears strange sounds like a heart beat. The next day, he tells Rupert and Amy about his experience (Amy believes in ghosts, Rupert doesn't) and they agree to stay at the old house with him that night. Nothing happens that night and the next morning Christopher has to go back to London. Rupert and Amy stay on and, that night, Rupert has the same experience as Christopher but he manages to lock the woman in the room. He goes to fetch Amy but when they open the door, the woman is gone. Amy thinks it's a ghost. Rupert thinks that people are using the house for nefarious purposes and the woman is a plant designed to scare people away so they can carry on their business in private. Who is right?
