TV crew films 'ghost' in Tutbury Castle

Did the crew film the shadow of a ghost ? Image Credit: YouTube / P.A.S.T Investigations
A mysterious shadow was picked up on camera during filming for a new paranormal investigation TV series.
The clip, which was posted online as a promotion for new show 'The Past Hunters', features co-director Bex Palmer and controversial medium Derek Acorah during an investigation of a notoriously haunted castle in Staffordshire, England.

As the pair discuss what took place in the castle's past Palmer suddenly gasps and points over towards the wall where the shadow of what looks like a human figure can be seen. A few moments later the shadow then seems to move towards the left and vanish, much to the surprise of the crew.

"The curator Lesley Smith mentioned a shadowy figure later on and when we told her what we’d seen, it completely matched up," said Palmer. "She was just as excited as us that we’d captured it on camera we couldn’t stop talking about it for weeks afterwards."

Tutbury Castle is often regarded as one of the most haunted buildings in England with visitors frequently reporting everything from mysterious footsteps to sightings of ghostly apparitions.

"We normally like to try and debunk things that we see because we still sit on the fence when it comes to ghosts, but we don't think there’s any other explanation for what we saw," said Palmer.

Light source reflection in bottom of picture couldn't be from camera because from 0:31 the source moves whilst the framed shot does not. So another moving light source was present... to cast the shadow. Besides... if they were filming in infrared... how did she even see the shadow.

I am a pretty big castle nerd and I am somewhat familiar with Tutbury, Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned here for a while and used to get greatly depressed at the stench of the marshes below as it was high up on a hill, always windy and very bleak too. There's also a tale of two lovers, a mistress of the castle was having a dodgy affair and went to the tower for a rowdy rendezvous but her lover had been offed by a steward, she immediately rushed forward and impaled herself on his weapon (lol) and bled out. An old woman spectre sometimes is seen floating about, a ghostly kid runs down hallways... [More]

I am confused. It's clearly a shadow of a person in their crew but they are getting freaked out by it. huh? I've seen this pair before. A lot of drama and "feelings" but not much evidence.

The most astounding, undeniable evidence ever seen could be captured and Derek Accorahs mere presence would render it unbelievable. How many dumb fools could there be to allow that fraudulent con man to still be practicing in his "psychic" career?

Its all about the ratings now. Quality TV has been buried under "mockumentaries" and reality TV. P.S. I like your avatar.
