Episode Summary

Growing Pains
Dr Terence Morton (a research botanist) and his wife Laurie live in a big country house with their ten-year-old son, William, but he is killed by eating food intended for his father's research rabbits. The Mortons then adopt another young boy, called James. But their new son is a weird, aloof child from the beginning, and shocking things happen around him. Dr Morton is always busy with his research work, while Laurie works tirelessly for charities, which means they completely neglect their new son - which is just as it was with William, the boy who died. Then James finds William's diary and reads a poem he wrote about his lonely life, and this calls up the shade of the dead boy. William's ghost invades the household, looking for revenge on his selfish father and causing grim events to unfold.moreless
