Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Helen Probyn starred in this British children's series as Cassie Palmer, the seventh child of a seventh child. Blessed with psychic powers, Cassie wanted nothing whatsoever to do with her special gifts, especially after standing by helplessly while her fortune-telling mother (Elizabeth Spriggs) was thrown in jail on a charge of fraud. Nonetheless, Cassie was forced into a battle of wills with a malevolent spirit named Deverill (Geoffrey Rose),who, as it happened, wasn't such a bad guy after all. Based on a novel by Vivian Alcock, the six 25-minute episodes of The Haunting of Cassie Palmer originally aired over Britain's Southern Television service in 1982. The series was later seen in America as part of the Nickelodeon cable-TV anthology The Third Eye.
