The Witch Farm

4.8/5

Critic Rating

It's 1989, rural Wales, a lonely old farmhouse in the shadow of the imposing Brecon Beacons mountains. Young, pregnant Liz Rich and her artist husband Bill rent an isolated farmhouse in the Welsh countryside, with Bill's teenage son Laurence. They're hoping for a fresh start, but the house holds dark secrets, and the family's new life becomes a terrifying ordeal that will change them forever. Their dream home has become a haunted nightmare - but what is real and what is in their minds? Written and presented by Danny Robins, creator of The Battersea Poltergeist, Uncanny and West End hit 2:22...

Kev (Tea In The Sahara) • Tea In The Sahara Nov 4, 2022

" I welcomed this series being set in the late eighties/nineties. Hopefully, this offers a greater probability of actual living eyewitnesses...Quick theme music reference – The Witch Farm caters to BBC 6 Music fans – hurrah – offering an atmospheric, introspective, musical vibe created by Welsh singer Gwenno. Kev’s top tip Although it’s still early doors, my inner nerd genuinely enjoys the new-age experiments Danny creates...However, if you were left wondering which side I currently stand within this debate — I still comfortably remain within the non-believer camp."

Miranda Sawyer • The Guardian Oct 22, 2022

"...the audio king of true-life scary tales has unearthed another it-actually-happened haunting. The Witch Farm follows the template Robins set in The Battersea Poltergeist: he reports the tale in an engagingly excitable manner; scenes are recreated by actors...And it is enjoyable. Perhaps it was predictable that a gruff local would tell the Riches that their cottage was built from the stones of destroyed graves, but there are two more unexpected factors that hook you into the next episode."
