I am watching The Secret of Crickley Hall at the moment, which I like very much, apart from the irritating mother character - the actress is very good, don't get me wrong. I just personally don't like "whimpering mother" characters.
The location is great and I love the 1940s bits. I am concentrating very hard on the details of how the makers of the show have managed to convey the atmosphere of sadness and the presence of ghosts in an isolated house, as I am writing something vaguely similar at the moment (ghosts in an isolated manor house, my house being much bigger than the one in the programme).
Thankfully, there is no hysterical over-motherly character in my story - quite the opposite. The mother in the novel is at the other end of the "mothering scale", think more of Agnes in The Crimson Petal and the White.
I think therefore I write.
