Further details

After finding a broken pool cue, Romesh installs CCTV to catch the culprit. However, he catches more than he would like - a black shadow. Natasha and the kids are convinced the pub is haunted. Romesh's mum, Jayanthi, believes it is her dead husband and invites a Sri Lankan monk to cleanse the pub so he can move on.
