Day 6 already - the AtoZChallenge is going fast this year. Hope you have all had a good one so far. Welcome to my blog and my theme of Fictional Phantoms. Today I have two very different ghosts for you, one will follow a criminal to the ends of the earth, the other has to sail all its days to the ends of the earth and back again.
Robert "Bob" Fraser (Due South)Gordon Pinsent) was a sergeant in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the father of Benton Fraser (Paul Gross) in the highly successful 1990s drama, Due South.
Bob is murdered in the very first episode and we are introduced to his son Benton as he tries to solve his father's case.
After death Bob returned to help his son as a ghost, giving sage advice and later appearing to others as well. In life he was the embodiment of the RCMP; honest, brave, loyal and could track anyone, especially through the wilderness. All these qualities he then passed on to his son.
In death he maintained these values and refused to move on while his son needed him. Sometimes this led to very amusing situations.
The Flying Dutchman (Pirates of the Caribbean)
In Pirates of the Caribbean the ship is mostly known just at The Dutchman and she is captained by Davy Jones. Calypso was Jones' lover and gave him The Dutchman to ferry nautical lost souls to the afterlife.
When she failed to make their appointed meeting after 10 years he took The Dutchman and began to wander the seas, bringing down a curse on him, his ship and his crew. All who sail her have become monsters and she is doom to all who meet her on the seas.
What would you do if a dead relative suddenly popped up to give you advice?
