All Souls is an American television series broadcast on UPN, first aired in 2001. It was a horror-drama series about a haunted Boston hospital called All Souls Hospital, and it followed Dr. Mitchell Grace's quest to find out the truth about the hauntings that dated as far back as the civil war. The program was cancelled in late August 2001 due to low ratings.

All Souls Hospital's lower levels used to be a mental asylum, and are haunted by ghosts of dead patients. The ghosts notably include Lazarus, an orderly who has been benevolently haunting the hospital since his days working with Dr. Ambrosius after the Civil War.

The series occasionally reairs on Syfy. All Souls is currently airing on NBC Universal's horror and suspense-themed cable channel, Chiller.

The first three are dead, and in trying to help Gabby the doctors find out that Belinda has apparently aged from twenty to over ninety as a side effect of the experiment.

Wheelock becomes possessed by "Roger" and dangerous, kidnapping tattooed nurse Kim Peretti (Cecile Cristobal) before killing his wife Calvette (Anik Matern) and their two sons. Roger then possesses Kim and goes after Dr. Sterling. It is revealed that "Roger" is an old "god of the dead" working through nurse Karen Waverly (Ann Day-Jones) and has gone after Dr. Baines as the next victim. Dr. Cullen is attacked in the process, but saved by Dr. Grace.
The episodes closing shot reveals that the ancient symbol used to represent "Roger" is also used as the logo for All Souls Hospital.
