ITV seems to have the supernatural/fantasy genre on the brain at the moment (most definitely not a criticism). With upcoming series such as Jekyll & Hyde and Beowulf on the horizon, ITV have also announced the cast for supernatural drama, Harry Price: Ghost Hunter.
The two hour movie will see Rafe Spall (The Shadow Line) in the title role,which has been described as a spine chilling mix of real history and fiction and is based on the novel The Ghost Hunters by Neil Spring and real paranormal investigator Price himself. The film has been written by Jack Lothian (Doc Martin, Death in Paradise, Ashes to Ashes) and produced by leading independent production company Bentley Productions
Rounding off the cast include Cara Theobold (Downton Abbey) who will play Sarah Grey, one of Harry’s team in his paranormal investigations; Richie Campbell (DCI Banks) will play Albert Ogoro, Harry’s friend; and Lewis Reeves (Unforgotten) will play journalist, Vernon Wall. Further casting includes Tom Ward (Death in Paradise) as MP Edward Goodwin and Zoe Boyle (Downton Abbey) as Edward’s wife, Grace.
