Did anyone else enjoy this? We are really looking forward to the next episode. I think I'm right in saying that it is from the Horrible Histories stable, and that is another programme we love.

We think we enjoyed it and will watch it again.....just to check!

We enjoyed it, looking forward to the next episode

It was fun. I too am looking forward to next week's episode.

Yes; I started watching it late last night but had to stop as I was on my own and the plague girl scared me [I'm a coward when it comes to spooky things] but will resume watching it today as I loved what I saw. I, too love Horrible Histories. I've noticed there is a crossover of actors from Horrible Histories, this and Detectorists.

It was made by the Horrible History lot. Wonderful that the adults get a go at the comedy they produce. Loved it. Most comedies are so dull in comparison.

Not sure about it, tbh ,thought it a bit childish, but will watch again to see how it goes.

Labaik, come on, it's only acting and a bit of make up!

I thought it was great. Gentle subtle humour, hopefully it will be a classic like Dads Army and the Good Life.

Thanks, recording it on Catch Up !

Jane10 Wed 17-Apr-19 22:20:47

I quite enjoyed it too. A rather different situation comedy.

lemongrove Wed 17-Apr-19 22:22:30

I liked it, quirky gentle humour ( not scary in the least.)

Anja Wed 17-Apr-19 22:49:37

Bit silly but fun

I agree with most on here - wasn't intending to watch it but found myself doing so (!) and found it entertaining. I love Horrible Histories so probably not surprising that I enjoyed it. Will definitely watch it again, intentionally next time.

How nice to watch something that is just being funny and not trying too hard to be cutting edge!

My favourite is the stone age man; I chuckle every time I think of him....

Has anyone any ideas about the group of ghosts in the cellar ?
They seem so unhappy when the lights are turned off and once again they are left in the dark.
Why don't they go upstairs?
Or are they plague victims ? And died down there so cannot go upstairs ?

lemongrove Thu 25-Apr-19 16:59:42

Yes, I feel sorry for the cellar ghosts too!grin they should be invited upstairs.

LullyDully Thu 25-Apr-19 17:43:06

I am enjoying it, silly yet not offensive. I loved the husband using YouTube to mend an ancient heating system. Then the fun of waiting for him to lift the red lever as the ghosts desperately urged him to do.

Good to see the actress from Fresh Meat and the Midwives. If you YouTube her, she is a wonderful singer. Not sure if her name. (If I Google it I will loose my writing. )

Charlotte Richie

We caught up with both episodes yesterday.I laughed out loud more than at anything supposedly 'funny' in ages.Charlotte Richie has great comedic timing and expression.Indeed all the cast are excellent.We recognised the politician with no trousers as the rival from The Detectorists. Another great comedy series,albeit subtler and gentler.

Mapleleaf Fri 26-Apr-19 16:38:54

I caught up with it a couple of days ago. It's hilarious. Nice to have something that's funny without being vulgar.

Deedaa Fri 26-Apr-19 20:59:10

I told DD to watch because of the Horrible Histories connection. She said she couldn't understand why it was on so late as there was nothing her 12 year old couldn't watch.

Labaik Sun 28-Apr-19 00:15:06

I've just rewatched episode 2 because I hadn't realised the cellar ghosts were different to the other ones. I laughed even more second time round. The cellar ghosts reminded me of the minions.
