Jessica is suspicious when the appearance of the ghost of a long-dead witch burned at the stake coincides with the release of a book on the very subject.


Dee Wallace and Christopher Stone were married at the time of filming.

The title is based on the three witches' dialog in Shakespeare's 'Macbeth' (Act IV, Scene I): "Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn and cauldron bubble."

1 of 48 times Dee Wallace and Christopher Stone appeared together on screen, all but 1 while they were married in real life.

Victim: Irene Terhune/Annie Gordon

Killer: Adam Frobisher

Cause of death: Blunt force trauma from hammer blow.

Motive: Believed she plan to collect part of the inheritance of his wife, Mildred Terhune.


Twenty people were accused of witchcraft and put to death. Nineteen people were hanged and one was pressed to death. No one was burned for witchcraft in the USA.

Jessica (Angela Lansbury) states that you don't get jet lag when traveling west-to-east. This is untrue. Jet lag is present in both east-west and west-east travel and is worse for those traveling west to east.

I can see how Irene knew of the inheritance, in which she thought was an apple orchard. But it was news to Jessica, Metzger & Seth as to what it was, with Irene knowing of the inheritance, I can see her telling Adam of it, but yet, no story to explain him making an excuse to learn to as what it really was, now was there ?
