Another day, another new drama for you to wrap your eyes around. This time Surrane Jones takes the lead in a haunting new series set in a mysterious old house.
She will be joined by an all-star cast including Tom Ellis (Miranda, The Fades), Douglas Henshall (Primeval, South Riding), David Warner (Wallander), Sarah Smart (Five Days, Wallander), Iain De Caestecker (The Fades, Young James Herriot) and Donald Sumpter (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Game Of Thrones) in this adaptation of James Herbert’s best-selling novel made by BBC Drama Production North.
Suranne Jones says: “The Secret Of Crickley Hall is a classic haunted house spine chiller. With an emotional family story at its heart, Joe Ahearne has adapted the novel perfectly, and I am really excited about working with him as a director. It’s a great cast and I am looking forward to working with David Warner, Donald Sumpter, and Tom Ellis.”
Written and directed by Joe Ahearne, this three-part drama is a modern day ghost story especially for Halloween. Told in a dual timeframe, it is full of scares yet underpinned by the heart-breaking story of a family needing to heal and ghosts who need to be laid to rest.
Joe Ahearne says: “Everyone loves a good ghost story and James Herbert is an iconic writer in the genre. He’s come up with a really thrilling and moving story that delights you while it’s terrifying you. It’s a testament to his craft that we’ve attracted such a great cast to play the characters he created.”
