Synopsis: Professor David Ash is invited to Edbrook to calm the fears of the elderly nanny of the Mariell family. Nanny Tess is seeing things, and Ash's book debunking such phenomenon makes him a good choice to set her mind at ease and convince her she is just tired and stressed. But soon after arriving David too begins to doubt his senses, and watching the odd behavior of the three grown Mariell children doesn't make his task any easier. In fact, he begins to think Nanny Tess isn't really just tired and stressed out after all.

Just kidding.

I learned watching my brothers.

You are very funny.

Welcome to Edbrook.

I found Nana Tess.


Sometimes this is very odd.

It's that thing of ghosts.

Is obsessed with it.

Have you seen any?

Mrs. Webb?

Nana Tess, do not be rude.

He is here for you.

Thank you very much, Professor.

I'll take him to his room.

Do not worry nana.

I do.

Then we talked.

That such a fantastic house.

Only two of you live here?

No, my two brothers,

Robert and Simon out there.

And of course the ghost of Nana.

I know I should not,

But I can not resist.

We get along well as children.

I hope you feel comfortable here.

I'm sure.

When unpacking,

I can show you the house if you want.

No, do not bother,

I can do it myself.

Make yourself at home

You can go wherever you like.

Dinner is served at 7:30.

Think it's all in your imagination?

You think?



Can enter.

Robert Mariell.

David Ash. A pleasure.

- Sure.

It's a novelty have a teacher in the house.


They've been good?

- Yes, if the room is very comfortable...

This house is magnificent.

It was my great-grandfather bought it.

The Marielle money according to my father.

We lose a little in it.

We try to use only rooms needed.

It is difficult to maintain such a place,

without domestic servants.

Oh, yes. It should be.

Things are not as

Mariell before in the Family.

Nana told him.

Yes, Mrs. Webb...

He's very generous of you for coming.

And I owe you an apology.

An apology?

I gave his book.

A Nana, his book.

And that was the beginning of everything

and you have come.

Anyway, now that you're here.

Brindare you all the help we can.


You think someone might

be playing a joke on Mrs. Webb?

Some neighbors, perhaps?

- My God, no.

We're very isolated here.
