    Can anyone identify this children's sitcom series, probably ITV and from the early to mid 1970s. It was set in a haunted house and I think Robert and/or Stacy Dorning was in it. And possibly Nigel Pegram, made up to look like a doddery old man.

    I see the both of them were in Robert's Robots, and Nigel Pegram was "Grandfather" in several linked episodes of the Tomorrow People. Am I merging memories of the two programmes, I wonder? I'm sure I've got a memory of an attractive teenage/early 20s woman in it as well, who I thought might have been Robert's daughter Stacy.

    Hmmm. I wonder if I do. It's got the Stacey link (though Gregg rather than Dorning) and she does look decidedly attractive.

    No Robert Dorning or Nigel Pegram link, though I'm beginning to wonder whether the Nigel Pegram as a doddery old man "link" may be to his appearance in The Tomorrow People which I definitely used to watch.

    "Tottering" and William Mervyn? Yes, that rings an almost inaudible bell in my brain. As does Marmaduke.

    Marmaduke was a regular character in Southern Television's "Bright's Boffins" where he was played by the always audible Eddie Reindeer.
