1.4 - Ghost Town

Sarah and Josh set off for a well-deserved break in a remote Romanian village, hidden deep in the Carpathian Mountains. They're staying with Sarah's old friend, Yolande Benstead, a retired journalist and ex-pat who lives in an eerie mansion with no one but her mysterious manservant for company. By chance Sarah has arrived at an appropriate time - the village has become the setting for a top-secret International Peace Conference.

Sarah is awoken in the night by a terrifying apparition. Is it a ghost or just a figment of her imagination? What is that unbearable noise? And will the others believe her story?

But Miss Smith is not the only one who's had a fright. Conference delegates are being terrified too. Literally scared to death. Is there something curious about the old house or something deadly about the whole village? It's down to Sarah and Josh to piece together the mystery that surrounds this Ghost Town.

Another episode that doesn't move the overarching story but this one, unlike 1.2, was a good story. As Sarah and Josh slowly piece together the mystery, I was trying to figure it out as well. I suspected the ending all along, but I wasn't completely sure until it closer to the end of the story. To me, that seems to be the sign of a good mystery play.
