Marchlands

Marchlands was an unmissable drama about 3 different families who live in the same house over 3 decades and links them to the spirit of a young girl who died in mysterious circumstances. If you missed it on TV I would recommend buying it on DVD as it is brilliant.

Promising start but not the creepy ghost story I was expecting

3

*Could contain spoilers* After 3 weeks of teasers I was looking forward to being gripped by ITV's new drama. The first 2 weeks had me hooked. The concept was fresh and worked really well. Marchlands is a ghost story seen over 4 decades by three families who all live in Marchlands. The drama dips in between the 3 eras seamlessly and the viewer is soon able to build up a picture about the characters on screen. 1968 see's the grieving Bowens. Haunted Ruth is constantly seeking answers about the recent death of her young daughter Alice. If life wasn't harsh enough Ruth is struggling with her oppressive in laws and her distant husband. 1987 introduces us to the next family, The Maynards. Our next era sees the daughter of the family, Amy, blaming her invisible friend Alice for recent disturbances around the house. Mum Helen thinks Amy is ill and looks to professionals to treat her daughters strange and erratic behavior. In 2010 we meet current residents, married couple Mark and Nisha. The imminent arrival of baby means Nisha is spending a lot of time renovating a room for a nursery. As the walls are uncovered, so are some of Marchlands and Alices' secrets. The inter-woven stories are genius. The move between each family and their troubles builds a sketchy picture of tragic Alice. Each episode drips more clues about the young girls death but it not until the final episode we find out the circumstances surrounding her demise. I expect the ending is supposed to reveal along awaited twist but is frankly an anti climax and not in the least bit spooky. Its a real shame because the previous 4 episodes are soaked in an eerie atmosphere and promise a chilling reason for all the creepy goings on. If you're looking for a good drama with some sharp ghostly moments thrown in, this is it. The cast is strong and the acting is believable. However, If you're looking for an on-the-edge-of-your-seat story that is going to to have you biting your nails from beginning to end, I would pass.

This is compelling drama follows three families, at three different points at time, from the 60's to present day, all of whom live at Marchlands. But. At heart this is a ghost story, and the families we meet are not just connected by where they live....all their lives are touched by a girl called Alice. The circumstances in which she died are somewhat of a mystery, but her Mum, Ruth Bowen, knows that to overcome her death she must find out the truth. And Alice won't rest until the mystery is unravelled. She reveals herself to subsequent residents of her childhood home, desperately trying to communicate with them, so that they and her Mum understand the circumstances of her death. The younger and the older Ruth Bowen are both played very well. The performances make for a believable progression from a grief stricken but determined young mother to the older character that eventually finds out the truth. The rest of characters bring the story alive as they react to the strange goings on around them. The present day Nisha stands out for me. After discovering some of the history of the house, and with a new baby to care for, you really feel for her when Alice starts making her presence known. The middle of the three families, who live at Marchlands during the late 80's add another layer to the story. Amy, the daughter, is most affected by Alice. The strain of a couples relationship, due to what experts deem to be their Amy's illness, draws you into their world. Overall, this is definitely worth watching, if you want to nitpick, then yes there are a few plot holes, and I don't know if you really need five episodes to tell the story, but at least if you buy the box set you don't have wait 5 weeks for the conclusion! One last thing, if you are hoping to be terrified, then you will probably be disappointed, yes this series definitely has it's scary moments, but I doubt it will keep you up at night.

This was a really exciting story covering 3 families living in a house (Marchlands) over different times. It was a thrilling tale of a girl who has drown and the mum's quest to find out what happened and how the ghost of the girl impacts on the lives of those living in her house. Excellent cast, nothing negative to say about it would highly reccommend it.

This is a brilliant series! Just the right amount of suspense and story! Some bits are very scary but unlike a horror film once that bit has happened you move on to a different part of the story and so you aren't constantly scared. The way it moves between the three time zones is great and I didn't find it confusing at all! All in all a brilliant series and well worth a watch, even if you aren't big on scary stuff!!

I thought this drama was cleverly written. I loved how it moved between the different eras and families living at Marchlands. The fact that some of the characters appeared in one or more eras linked the story and gave it a strong storyline. It was good that the viewer got to see glimpses of Alice as it made me feel like I believed she existed too. A great supernatural drama that had me hooked until the end.

I am a complete ITV and BBC drama addict and have seen them all Marchlands is by far one of the best, I would recommend to anyone. The way the drama was set between the 3 eras was fab, all linked between a terrible accident.
