On tonight at 8.30. I would have missed it. Could have caught it on catchup but wanted to see it ‘live’ (sort of). Plus University Challenge which I’m loving. The alumni ones always have more answerable questions!

Oh no. They’re both on at the same time.....

Just had this exact conversation with Mr L, MayBee70!

We've decided to watch Ghosts (which I adore) and then catch up with University Challenge.

See if I can break my record of getting 5 questions right in one show!

Enjoy smile

I did really well last night! The normal UC is totally beyond me these days though. DH isn’t a fan of Ghosts (he’s an Only Connect fan) so I’ll have to watch that on catchup. UC is usually our Monday night treat. Each week we say ‘I can’t believe it’s Monday night already’ and then the dog panics because it’s her claw clipping night.

And then it’s Ch5’s Wartime Christmas programme at 9. What a feast!

Ghosts, then Motherland, bliss.

I'm with you jax!

I’ve never seen Ghosts.

At the moment I’m watching Julia Donaldson the Gruffalo lady on 2. She’s a neighbour of my daughter, so I’m happily sat here saying oh look it’s so and so or that’s the National Trust house roof etc😄😄😄

I really like Ghosts and I thought series two was very funny and poignant. The christmas special was lovely.

I enjoy Ghosts too, nice gentle humour, but like many Christmas Specials, I didn’t think it was as good as the usual series, a bit laboured at times.

Well kittylester thoroughly enjoyed both of them.

I love Ghosts. It was beautiful when they all sang " In the bleak midwinter".

I have missed carols this year. We usually go to a service in Winchester cathedral with my grandaughter's school. We will have to catch the Kings carols tomorrow.
