A 19th century "ghost buster" meets his match in a violent and aggressive poltergeist in an American mansion

CBSRMT featured several "psychic detective" stories and they are almost all enjoyable, including this episode. The ending surprised me. The closing comments suggest that the producer wanted feedback from the audience regarding the protagonist but, as far as I know, the character of the detective was never featured again. The visiting skeptical friend seemed largely superfluous. CBSRMT did a lot of ghost stories and they maintained a high level of quality.

The character Flaxman Lowe was used in at least one other episode. The episode called "Once Upon an Island" features him in the second version of a story used during the show's run. The first episode was called "The Shining Man". They are identical except for changes in the character's names and the titles.
