A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The show exists mostly to entertain but centers on a blended family whose members have a real affection for one another. Some people use magic to influence the actions of others and for their own gain.
Positive Role Models
Tara is set on discovering the truth, even when it means confronting people and situations that frighten her. Some characters' motivations are suspect, and they keeps secrets to deceive others.
Violence & Scariness
Suspense builds through a variety of mysterious events. Some, as in the case of a fire, can be scary, but most only hint at spookiness and supernatural powers, as when a woman erases a family by removing their pictures from a tapestry.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Evermoor is a suspenseful drama series with some surprises, so it's more appropriate for tweens than for younger kids. Characters presumed dead suddenly reappear, everyday objects hold magical properties, and people have access to powers that can alter the lives of others. Even so, there's nothing overtly threatening, so this is a decent option for tweens who like their scares on a small scale. Those who tune in will see that the story centers on a blended family whose members share their ups and downs and lean on each other when they need support.
Is It Any Good?
Evermoor is no spine-tingler, but it does a decent job of keeping tween viewers' interest as its story unfolds. With a set of characters whose intentions are often suspect and puzzles that divulge answers piece by piece, there's enough mystery from one episode to the next to tempt a following within this age group. Of course, the fact that the mostly teen cast is easy on the eyes doesn't hurt its appeal, and the stately Cheshire setting is tailor-made for a story like this one.
Most of the show's suspense relates to the presentation of magic as reality, so its scares aren't the traditional jump-out-of-your-skin type. This can go either way, depending on your tweens' sensitivities, but for the most part it makes for pretty safe viewing. Even better, the rest of the show's content is squeaky clean, so you don't have to worry about your tweens tuning in.
