Pauline Pratt finds a ventriloquist’s dummy, Little Lord Percival, but discovers he is evil and causes a lot of trouble that she gets the blame for. Eventually she realises that Lord Percival is possessed by the spirit of Fred Vernon-Vaisley (“Vernon the Valet”), a ventriloquist with a difficult, quarrelsome personality. Vaisley’s personality led to his “sad end” after a quarrel with a fellow performer, Mr Grantley, and now Lord Percival is out for revenge on Mr Grantley.
