My Brother told me to listen in, after discussing a paranormal event which happened to him. I’m sceptical but really enjoyed theBattersea poltergeist.

I quite enjoyed this series but it wasn’t quite what I expected. It’s very much a radio play and I was expecting something explaining and looking at evidence. I found the Mary Poppins London accents a bit annoying and the lean to Radio 4 drama: ‘I’ll just close the blinds” (cue sound effect)....Read full review »

Love the story within the story. The “guests” and narrator are so believable in their respective roles, combined with the tie ins to Enfield…as the listener, it’s a treat to actually begin to buy the tale. Transportive, entertaining & clever.

Great story, excellent acting and fab sound design. One of the best audio dramas out there. Cleverly weaves real famous cases like the Enfield poltergeist into this fictional narrative.

Very interesting and entertaining podcast. Keeps you entertained and always wanting more

I’ve enjoyed Danny’s other podcasts Haunted and Uncanny. But the decision to have dramatic re-enactments for this story was a mistake. It blurs the line between what is real and what is made up, not to mention the horrible, stilted script and bad acting.

Loved it!

This production is of an incredibly high standard, such that even a hardened sceptic can’t help but be swept up in the drama as it unfolds as if in real time. Thrilling listening!

Bloody brilliant stuff - not only intelligent but also hilarious in places. The quality of journalism and the dedication to serious investigation is excellent - they take nothing for granted and investigate all explanations seriously.

Great podcast loved it from start to finish All Danny’s ghostly podcasts are very good
Adam/ lurgan northern ireland via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/17/22
I disagree with another reviewer that the acting in this was hammy. Toby Jones is a very good voice actor. The girl playing Shirley is excellent too. The production values are top notch compared to most podcasts. It’s all a hoax as becomes clear at the end, even by the show’s own evidence. Evelyn...Read full review »

The acting parts are tedious. If I wanted to listen to an audio book I would. The rest of it so far is good.

The story, whether real or not is fascinating & very well researched. Danny delivers it with more than enough vocal imagery - we really don’t need those dreadful acting voices as well. They’re embarrassingly amateurish & ruin the suspense. Please send them back to voiceover school. If it...Read full review »

Absolutely hooked. I love how this story is told, discussed, disected and that there are actors which make you feel as if it is happening now meaning you don’t have to imagine you can focus on the story and submerge yourself in it. Absolutely brilliant.

Danny don’t listen to the people who don’t like the podcast there just jealous that they can’t present a podcast or tell a story
UTAV11111 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/25/22
really enjoyed this podcast! it's an interesting mix of present-day interviews, research, discussions, and then the fictional recreation of real, past events. this isn't going to answer questions of whether ghosts are real, etc etc. it's just a fun little romp exploring some...Read full review »

Brilliant podcast but the title song makes me feel like my ears are bleeding it’s awful
GEEOORRGGGIIIAAAAAAAAAAA via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/30/21
This podcast has a great documentary format. It has the right balance of dramatisations, reporting and expert opinion. It is so compelling. I’m looking forward to similar podcasts.
Stawmn via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/23/21
I had no idea until I read other reviews that this was supposed to be anything other than an attempt at a comedy mockumentary. The delivery style of Danny Robbins, the hamminess of the acting. The hilarious interviewees. The awkward build up of tension. It’s more like a pretend spooky office than...Read full review »

Absolutely excellent!
AntoineDuCoq via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 11/02/21
An obejct lesson into how to make an interesting story rather dull. The drama bits are pretty good, but the rest of it drowns in self-importance ("I'm a writer and journalist") and awkwardness. As for the awful music, it belongs on one of those super-low budget ghost-hunting TV...Read full review »

Seems like a good movie material, make the press, paranormal hunters, skeptics, family etc as the real evil and make the poltergeist continue to be ambiguous even at the end of the movie.
Kennywong070874 via Apple Podcasts · Singapore · 10/29/21
Danny has done an amazing job bringing this story to life. Very cleverly done. I love the mix of dramatisations, academic opinions, and interviews. Top-notch stuff.
Carlonseider via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/22/21
I was really worried about the drama part of this podcast. They usually sound so over acted and amateur. But this was amazing!! Simply the best I’ve ever heard!! It really added to the reporting of this interesting story.
Lil Ritchie via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/15/21
Great series. Having access to Shirley really added to the narrative. Great discussion with the experts and witnesses. So hard to decide what was real and what was not!!
Curious Tipperary via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 10/07/21
Very well produced podcast and very interesting.
Gem1234876 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/07/21
Just love this podcast! Love the format of interviews combined with research then told through a audio story. This podcast was done BBC correct
ytdawg via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/28/21
Absolutely loved this show, couldn’t wait to hear each one, brilliantly presented exciting scary and some really interesting facts. Can’t wait to listen to your other shows.
AshRhon via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/26/21
I didn’t realize this was based on real events. That changed my opinion from a fun/easy radio drama to a worthy listen. It is a bit slow, but I definitely appreciate all the production elements. Will listen to more bbc podcasts and would watch the tv show.
Kath375 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/14/21
This podcast is amazingly produced and is like “hearing” a James Wan film.
tjanus via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/28/21
Disappointing that the poltergeist appeared to inhabit a house full of raving simpletons… pick on Alan Carr or Stephen Fry next time, hey Donald…
Jamesh147 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/23/21
If you’re into soap opera this is probably right up your street. If u want a serious, thought provoking documentary give it a wide berth. Listen to The Bomb instead. A crying shame. Should’ve been so much better.
Pedros Pedros Ghali via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/26/21
Whether you’re a skeptic or a believer, this series will have you questioning everything. Good investigative technique and creeps galore.

I’ve loved this podcast. Such a fascinating story & so well presented.

Riveting storytelling and excellent production. Bravo.
Abbycaro via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/20/21
I loved this podcast. Just the right blend of scary storytelling and drama, vs factual evidence and healthy skepticism. I was hooked from episode 1. Well done Danny Robbins and please bring us another season soon!!
srmk75 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/20/21
Usual fare. You got your dishes flying around, doors that slam, chairs that move, theres a young kid, some priest is called in to do an exorcism, etc. etc. etc., yada yada yada, and a partridge in a pear tree. Total waste of time.
fireplug9 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/15/21
This had me hooked and I couldn’t stop listening. If you love a good ghost story you must hear this one.
HannJan via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/14/21
This is a top rate podcast. Everything about is classy and well done.
Chesstiger139 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/13/21
Loved this! Was excited to wait for each new episode, and listened to every second. Can we have a similar type thing or more? Appreciated from Australia!!

Fantastic show, fascinating topic and great production values. Love it.
Gnome Monk via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/03/21
Well produced show. Great quality. Highly recommend if you’re into ghost stories. I enjoyed the smooth transitioning between past/present telling of the story. Thoroughly enjoyed this podcast.
missjustdrea via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/28/21
The promotion of this podcast is entirely misleading. The reality is that It’s so boring and juvenile, I was shocked. Typically the BBC does a terrific job with podcasts. And, indeed, the production values of this one are first rate. It’s simply the story and the telling of it that’s dull as...Read full review »
