Silver: SAS: Rogue Heroes, Season 1

And the Gold goes to …

Winner: Ghosts, Season 4 – BBC One

Whilst Steven Knight dominated the drama categories, he can’t compete with the almighty Ghosts which returned this year for season four and a Christmas special.

From the creators and stars of ‘Yonderland’, ‘Bill’, and the original stars of ‘Horrible Histories’, ‘Ghosts’ is set in Button House, home to restless spirits whose lives, or rather, afterlives, are thrown into turmoil when a young couple unexpectedly inherits the peaceful derelict property with plans to turn it into a bustling hotel.

Series four saw Button House is open for business… well… the gatehouse part anyway! Alison (Charlotte Ritchie) and Mike (Kiell Smith-Bynoe) attempted to make a success of the humble B&B, with some interfering “help” from the ghosts, leading them to, let us say, not ideal…. results…

The series also features The Captain (Ben Willbond), Lady Button (Martha Howe-Douglas), Thomas Thorne (Mat Baynton), Kitty (Lolly Adefope), Julian (Simon Farnaby), Mary (Katy Wix), Humphrey (Larry Rickard), Pat (Jim Howick), and Robin (Larry Rickard).

Whilst the comedy has been renewed for a fifth season, that is a while off airing, but in the meantime, you can catch the US remake of ‘Ghosts’ on BBC iPlayer. You can also catch Ben Willbond and Larry Rickard’s new comedy feature ‘We Are Not Alone’ on UKTV Play.
