The Canterville Ghost

The Canterville Ghost

In this vivid adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s classic children’s story, the ghost of Sir Simon Canterville (Stephen Fry) has been roaming his castle for centuries, searching for a descendant who can release him from his curse by performing a brave deed.

The only problem is – he keeps scaring them away! Finally, a family move in who refuse to be startled, and Sir Simon is able to tell his tale to the inquisitive and courageous Virginia (Emily Carey).

Can the two of them survive The Ghost Catcher (Miranda Hart), and The Reverend (Toby Jones), to bring balance to the house and set Sir Simon free?
