Maybe they were VERY forward thinking for the 1820s.Apparently, they thought it wise to tone down the plague theme, during the current ermm... plague!
Also, in episode 4 (Thomas Thorne's flashback to his death in 1821), as they ride up to the house, you can clearly see electrical cable on the wall.
I'm afraid I just couldn't suspend my disbelief after that!

I’m being good and rationing myself.Maybe they were VERY forward thinking for the 1820s.
I wonder if they deliberately avoided a Victorian ghost. Although as we learnt in that episode there have been other ghosts.
We’ve only got two more episodes to go. I wish they had put it on weekly as it is rather too tempting to watch them all and then you’ve finished. Although interestingly the IMDB has got a Christmas episode listed.
I did wonder if that was the case, but I’m not sure.I've always thought Kitty died playing hide and seek, she accidentally got locked in somewhere people forgot about her.
This seemed to be hinted at when she said something about her sister saying she was good at hiding.
We still don't know how the captain died, or have I missed that?
I reckon he'll get news that his love interest has been killed in action... at the same time he finally gets his service revolver.We still don't know how the captain died, or have I missed that?
which is a bit dark, I think.Simon Farnaby's character is based upon the former conservative MP Stephen Milligan, who died of autoerotic asphyxiation in 1994.
Some conspiracy theorists believe Milligan was murdered to stop him making disclosures embarrassing to the wrong (ie powerful and dangerous) people.Simon Farnaby's character is based upon the former conservative MP Stephen Milligan, who died of autoerotic asphyxiation in 1994.

Lolly is wonderful, isn't she! We loved her in Miracle Workers too.The charming Lolly Adefope was on The Graham Norton Show last night, and she chatted about playing Kitty. Mr Norton mentioned Ghosts has been the most popular new comedy series of the past year, which is good, isn't it?
Then perhaps that’s why Milligan died? He got it wrong and used an orange instead of a lemon?Some conspiracy theorists believe Milligan was murdered to stop him making disclosures embarrassing to the wrong (ie powerful and dangerous) people.
From Wiki -
Milligan's corpse was found naked except for a pair of stockings and suspenders, with an electrical flex tied around his neck, a black bin liner over his head and an orange in his mouth.
An orange? You use a lemon or lime, not an orange. It's to bite down on when you start losing consciousness to shock into waking up.
An orange wouldn't work. It was there as a deliberate mistake to serve as a warning to others. So the story goes.
Anyway, Simon is rather overdressed for the role of Milligan.
I wondered in the wedding episode, with all those people if anyone would see the ghosts.I reckon he'll get news that his love interest has been killed in action... at the same time he finally gets his service revolver.
On the IMDB trivia section it says

I liked the girl phantom hitchhiker bit and I thought that in the burglary episode, Pat said something and the police officer answered him but I could be wrong. Overall, I think I got the most laughs from Robin the caveman this series.
Nah, back then you learned that sort of thing from other people. No internet to search.Then perhaps that’s why Milligan died? He got it wrong and used an orange instead of a lemon?
It was a domino effect.I should really be using spoilerizers
When the ghosts are trying to wake Mike up during the burglary, something happens that's a lot like a poltergeist. Something invisible crashes through the room, knocking a lamp over. What was that, or did I miss something?
