The two ships located in Dundee Scotland. RSS Discovery and HMS Unicorn, both are based within a mile of each other.
RSS Discovery built between 1900 and 1901 lived up to its name by carrying Captain Scott to the West Indies and New Zealand towards his historic expedition to Antartica. In Februrary 1904 two years on the RSS Discovery returned home to a hero’s welcome. Ghostly footsteps are heard throughout the ship, people believe it could be a crew member that followed Captain Scott to the Antartic, others believe it could be from a young man who fell to his death from the crows nest. A figure has been seen in one of the cabins, a ghostly boy has been seen running around the Ship and ghostly shadows have been seen, a ghost of a young sailor is seen so vividly that visitors stop and talk to him.
HMS Unicorn will be the main focus for the crew on this episode. HMS Unicorn is the oldest British Ship still afloat. The Ship fully launched in 1824, but the Ship never did get to see active battle due to due to onset of steam powered sailing, but the Ship did contribute to other things but it just remained in its location in Dundee. People feel uncomfortable on the decks as if someone is watching them, but the heavy booted footsteps and dark figures that scare people the most. There is only one known death located in this ship as well, one of the shipkeepers fell down the stairs near the boiler room and died and was found the next morning. Poltergeist activity is known to happen in one part of the ship and heavy objects and display cases are thrown on the floor when no-one is around. Some staff members refuse to enter the ship alone.
Steve Parsons is the Paranormal Investigator, and Guest Psychic Ian Shillito returns.
