Sky has released the first pictures of upcoming supernatural drama, The Enfield Haunting.
The three-part mini-series is a dramatisation of the terrifying and bizarre events that took place at an ordinary house in Enfield during the autumn of 1977. The show has a scarily good cast lined up, including Timothy Spall, Juliet Stevenson and Matthew Macfadyen.
Spall plays Maurice Grosse, a paranormal researcher who strikes up a connection with Janet (Eleanor Worthington-Cox), when he investigates the strange happenings at the Hodgson family home.
Macfadyen plays Guy Lyon Playfair, Grosse’s sceptical co-investigator, while Stevenson plays his wife, who is struggling to come to terms with his all-encompassing obsession with the investigation.
Playfair’s book on the happenings, This House is Haunted, is the main source for the drama, which also draws from “extensive documentation”, recordings and witness statements, says Sky.
Worthington-Cox will be joined by Rosie Cavaliero as her mother, Mrs. Hodgson, and Fern Deacon and Elliot Kerley as siblings Margaret and Billy. Eleanor shot to fame in 2012 when she became the youngest ever recipient of the Laurence Olivier Award for her shared role of Matilda at the Cambridge Theatre in London.
“Working on The Enfield Haunting has been an amazing experience. The role has been both challenging and rewarding,” she says. “I’ve got to work with so many fantastic actors like Timothy, Matthew, Juliet and Rosie and I’ve worked with an amazing production team.”
The Enfield Haunting will premiere this spring on Sky Living – home of the already chilling Hannibal – and will also be available to watch online on contract-free VOD service NOW.
