Further details

Now juggling day jobs with their endless renovations, Mike and Alison are both penniless and exhausted when a luxury hotel chain makes them an offer they can't refuse.

But the spectre of Alison's departure drives a wedge between the Ghosts, and the hardline Captain finds himself ostracised while Pat is voted in as reluctant leader. While the clueless spirits brainstorm money-making schemes, the Captain takes matters into his own hands.

Meanwhile, fortune smiles on Headless Humphrey in his ceaseless search for his errant body.
