Series 1, Episode 1 - Who Do You Think You Are?
Cash-strapped Alison and Mike think their dreams have come true when they inherit a grand country house, unaware that it's falling apart and teeming with the ghosts of former inhabitants.
The ghosts must act immediately to prevent the new owners' plans to turn the house into a hotel. After their attempts to haunt them away fail miserably, Julian summons all of his telekinetic powers to push Alison out of a window.
After settling back into their old life / death, the ghosts can't believe it when the 'livins' return. Mike has financially shackled them to the mansion, and Alison can now see the ghosts.

Deliriously silly new comedy from the team behind Horrible Histories, about a lineage of spectres who band together to haunt a couple turning their beloved country pile into a hotel. It has been given a rare post-watershed slot for the HH lot, but the tone here is mischievous rather than adult.Gwilym Mumford, The Guardian, 15th April 2019
So the Horrible Histories team have moved, via family-friendly Yonderland, into the realm of adult sitcom. Although there is nothing about Ghosts that remotely requires its post-watershed slot, beyond scenes of mile peril, and milder double entendre.Steve Bennett, Chortle, 15th April 2019
Not so much spine-tingling as spine-tickling comedy.Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke, 15th April 2019
The new show from Horrible Histories may be the most unlikely comedy spinoff since Frasier, but what a glorious romp.Stuart Jeffries, The Guardian, 15th April 2019
Horrible Histories in reverse - made for grown-ups but also potentially enjoyable to kids.Sean O'Grady, The Independent, 15th April 2019
A young couple inherit a country pile and move in to start repairs. Its resident gaggle of bored ghosts have other ideas.Sarah Carson, i Newspaper, 15th April 2019
Not only current, long adoring, fans of this comedy group will love this series, but I'm certain a whole new audience of admirers will take to this brilliantly funny series.Matt Shaine, On The Box, 15th April 2019
