Ghosts, episode 2, review

Comedy with a silly ray of springtime sunshine and witty horror movie tropes.

Michael Hogan, The Telegraph, 22nd April 2019

With the set-up out of the way, this sitcom about a creaky mansion inherited by a millennial couple, only one of whom can see the spirits that haunt it, is now flying. Strong, clever gags are offset - as always with the Yonderland/Horrible Histories gang - by lovely little performance flourishes. Delightful.

Ghosts review

Beautifully designed and directed as well, I really don't have a negative word to say about it in the slightest.

Alex Finch, Comedy To Watch, 16th April 2019

Review: New comedy 'Ghosts' is good fun

Ghosts is first and foremost a fun, multi-character comedy that's jam-packed with jokes.

Sophie Davies, The Custard TV, 16th April 2019

Review: Ghosts

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

Ghosts, review

A young couple inherit a country pile and move in to start repairs. Its resident gaggle of bored ghosts have other ideas.

Ghosts - review

Horrible Histories in reverse - made for grown-ups but also potentially enjoyable to kids.

Sean O'Grady, The Independent, 15th April 2019

Ghosts review

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

TV review: Ghosts, BBC One

Not so much spine-tingling as spine-tickling comedy.

Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke, 15th April 2019

Ghosts review

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.
