Ghosts review

Ghosts can sometimes teeter on the brink of tweeness and this storyline almost pushed it over the edge. Luckily, there's more acerbic humour to keep the balance.

Ghosts review

Hard to believe that it is only two years since Ghosts was first broadcast. That it already feels like a traditional staple of the Christmas schedule is a testament to the consistent quality of its uplifting, comfort-viewing fare.

For three series Ghosts have spoiled us with family entertainment that never patronises. This festive edition was a reminder of the true meaning of the festive season.

Ghosts Christmas special 2021 review

It's hard to be too critical about the latest Ghosts Christmas special. On the one hand, the brand new episode comes in relatively light on big laughs, which is disappointing given the strong third series we enjoyed earlier this year. Instead, the ensemble sitcom focuses on ramping up the 'aww factor' for a story all about showing kindness to those in need. With this in mind, giving it any less than three stars would be enough to get me visited by three spirits in the night - even if the execution leaves a lot to be desired.
