Happy Merlin Halloween : 3/∞ - The White Lady
A White Lady is a type of female ghost reportedly seen in rural areas and associated with some local legend of tragedy. White Lady legends are found around the world. Common to many of them is the theme of losing or being betrayed. They are often associated with an individual family line or said to be a harbinger of death similar to a banshee.The White Lady tends to reside in burial sites or other sacred places and it was thought that mist on a gravehill or near a mountain was the spirit of the White Lady appearing.
In popular medieval legend, a White Lady is fabled to appear by day as well as by night in a house in which a family member is soon to die. According to The Nuttall Encyclopaedia, these spirits were regarded as the ghosts of deceased ancestresses.

I think Merlin is so popular because it mixes humour and charm. The kids like the slapstick, while the darker undercurrents appeal to the adults. There are also a lot of morals in there too about friendship and loyalty.
