The Enfield Haunting is a 2015 British drama series commissioned by Sky Living. Kristoffer Nyholm, who rose to fame after the popular Danish series, The Killing, directed the three-parter.
The series is based on Guy Lyon Playfair’s book, This House Is Haunted and is about a series of bizarre events around the phenomena known as ‘The Enfield Poltergeist’ that apparently took place in a council house in North London in 1977.
The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist film is based on the same paranormal case.
Matthew Macfadyen (Grindhouse; Ripper Street) is playing Guy Lyon Playfair, an experienced but sceptical paranormal investigator. Timothy Spall (The Bride; Gothic; Dream Demon; Wake Wood) plays Maurice Grosse, a fledgling paranormal researcher. Juliet Stevenson also joins the cast to play Maurice’s wife Betty Grosse.
