This short-lived comedy series from Granada featured Arthur Lowe and Robert Dorning as a duo of amateur ghost-hunters.

Lowe and Dorning had already appeared as Leonard Swindley and Walter Hunt in Pardon The Expression (1965 – 1966), which itself was a spin-off of sorts from Coronation Street.

Lowe would, of course, go on to fame as the irascible Captain Mainwaring in the long-running Dad’s Army.
