THE AMAZING MR BLUNDEN
ORDERED BY SKY FOR CHRISTMAS
After last year's success with Roald and Beatrix, Sky has ordered THE AMAZING MR BLUNDEN for this year's Christmas schedule. It will be a
TV movie adaptation of the 1972 novel The Ghosts. Simon Callow, Tamsin Greig and Mark Gatiss have been set as leads! Christmas adventure arrives for London teenagers Jamie and Lucy Allen in the form of a mysterious old man, Mr Blunden, who offers their mum the opportunity to become the caretaker of a ruined country house – one that’s said to be haunted. Within its neglected, overgrown grounds, Jamie and Lucy have an encounter with what appears to be a pair of ghost children.
But these spooky kids, Sara and Georgie, aren’t actually ghosts. They’ve travelled forwards in time to seek help, believing they’re going to be murdered by the wicked Mr and Mrs Wickens. And Lucy and Jamie’s strange visitor seems to
be the key to it all. With his help, they must travel back to 1821 to save Sara and Georgie and redeem their remorseful new friend – The Amazing Mr Blunden.
|The book was published in 1972.|
