A corporate lawyer has secured “London’s scariest job” — as night watchman at a reputedly haunted theatre today, Friday the 13th.
Holly Boyd, 32, of Twickenham, beat more than 500 other applicants to the job at the Arts Theatre, where the team behind hit play Ghost Stories have experienced some spooky events. A camera in the auditorium, “the scream-cam”, turned itself on and took photos overnight, and another camera left running in an interview recorded a seat going down of its own accord.

It is easier to claim it is paranormal than taking the hard route and find out what really happened.

I'm sure this is not just theatrical promotion designed to fill seats.

So where are the photos it allegedly took of its own accord?

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

Were you amazed, entertained, or did you merely pour yourself more orange juice and move on?

I can't say it was the most stimulating tv I've ever seen,but as theatre seats popping down footage goes,it was up there with the best!
