Harry Price: Ghost Hunter | Sunday 27th December | ITV
Rafe Spall (Life of Pi, The Shadow Line, Prometheus) stars as Harry Price in ITV’s brand new one-off drama Harry Price: Ghost Hunter
Having withdrawn from society following the suicide of a young soldier, con artist Harry Price is drawn back into the land of the living when an MP’s wife, Grace Goodwin , is found naked in the streets of her local constituency.
Fearing a scandal may taint a promising career for her husband, Edward Goodwin, Sir Charles Harwood recruits Harry Price to investigating Grace’s condition.
Joining Rafe are Cara Theobold (Downton Abbey, The Syndicate) as Sarah Grey, one of Harry’s team assisting with his paranormal investigations; Richie Campbell (DCI Banks, The Frankenstein Chronicles), who plays Harry’s friend Albert Ogoro; and Lewis Reeves (Unforgotten, Uncle) as journalist Vernon Wall. The film is a spine-chilling mix of real history and fiction, and is based on the novel The Ghost Hunters by Neil Spring. Set in 1920s London at a time of rapidly emerging technology, the two-hour film is a standalone story about Britain’s most famous real-life ghost hunter and sceptic Harry Price, who investigated tales of the paranormal and supernatural.
