The strength of this book lies really in memories of the TV series. I think the series came first and it informs the book with its wonderful cast (including Sheila Steafel as the White Lady and Freddy Jones as Sir George) and its magnificent setting. I don't know what impact the book would have beyond being an aide memoire to the series - be interesting to hear from someone who has never seen it!

I love this book it takes me back to my childhood and watching it on the tv at tea time. I love the fact that I can see and hear the characters talking whilst I am reading - its my ideal ghost story - funny and old fashioned. I cannot praise this book enough for nostalgia alone

This was the first book I read from start to finish way back when it first came out. I remember really liking it but I think that was probably because I loved the TV programme.
