The Press Are Playing Ugly Games In Which The Vulnerable Are The Losers

3 July, 2015 // 2 Comments

I’ve researched and investigated paranormal phenomena for a decade or so now and so the terrible treatment that the most vulnerable people who claim to be paranormal eye-witnesses receive comes as no surprise to me anymore. Yet I still feel an anger bubbling when I read atrocious pieces like the one written by The Daily Record. It [...]

Who You Gonna Call? A Lawyer!

We’re all familiar with the classic ghost story trope. A family moves into a beautiful new home, confident that the new life they’re going to start there will be joyful and then weird things start to happen. They catch shadowy figures out of the corners of their eyes, can’t quite shake the feeling that they’re not alone [...]

Is this the world’s most haunted town? Toowoomba by name too-woo by nature, am I right?  According to various news sites Toowoomba, Australia is the world’s Most Haunted Town. Evidence has been flooding into a Facebook page called Toowoomba Ghost Chasers set up by Kylie Samuels and Katie Harvey. Shame then that the evidence provided [...]

Yvette Fielding, We Need To Talk About Your Ghost Problem.

6 June, 2015 // 20 Comments

Dear Yvette Fielding, There was a time when I would be glued to the television set when Most Haunted was on the screen because I thought it was a factual programme because you ensured us that nothing was staged on so many occasions. I still have my DVD collection somewhere in the house which I used to love. In 2005 I created my own paranormal [...]

This week on in the Weakly Ghost Bulletin I will be using The Hermione Granger Scale of Interesting to rate the stories I cover. You’re welcome. Is This Video Shot At SS Great Britain Proof Ghosts Exist? No. It is not. Firstly, the video is from 2009 and is being reported in 2015 so we can’t rely on the information being reported. [...]

GHOST CAUGHT IN PHOTO BEHIND MUSICIANS Many people are convinced that the photo above (as well as a series of other photos that can be seen by BELOW) show a ghostly figure in the window at the back of the room. The “figure” appears to move across the window in different shots but event though it does look quite odd it’s most [...]

Most Haunted Is Scary And Here’s Why

23 August, 2014 // 4 Comments

On Thursday evening at 10pm I sat down to watch the return of Most Haunted. My intention was to tweet along with the show and counter any pseudo-scientific claims that they made during the broadcast, and yet I need not have bothered. There was no use of EMF Meters, laser grid pens, thermal imaging equipment, dictaphones or thermometers throughout [...]

Live-tweeting Most Haunted

21 August, 2014 // 2 Comments

Most Haunted is back. Tonight. At 10pm on Really (Freeview 17 Sky 248 Virgin 267). As much as I moan about paranormal reality television I have a secret love for Most Haunted because it is the show that prompted me to become a naive but hopeful ghost hunter when I was Eighteen. I get frustrated at the bullshit they spout as factual, but it also [...]
