"Ghosts" is a multi-character sitcom created by the lead cast of writer-performers from the award-winning Horrible Histories, Yonderland and the feature film Bill. The crumbling country pile of Button House is home to numerous restless spirits who have died there over the centuries - each ghost very much a product of their time, resigned to squabble with each other for eternity over the most inane of daily gripes. But their lives - or, rather, afterlives - are thrown into turmoil when a young urban couple - Alison (Charlotte Ritchie) and Mike (Kiell Smith-Bynoe) - surprisingly inherit the peaceful derelict house and make plans to turn it into a bustling family hotel. As the ghosts attempt to oust the newcomers from their home, and Mike and Alison discover the true scale of the project they've taken on, fate conspires to trap both sides in an impossible house share, where even- day is, literally, a matter of life and death.
Obviously not watched the DVD version yet. But I have watched the series on TV. Brilliant and funny.
All the characters are well thought out. One of the best bits is the ghost without his trousers. You'll find out why if you watch the show. All the characters are stereotypes, but that is what makes the program work.
Most if not all come from the Horrible History series of programs. I remember watching all of these with my grand children. They loved it and I loved it also.
If you want a bit of harmless good humour, watch this DVD.
