Cast members Mathew Baynton, Martha Howe-Douglas and Laurence Rickard in historical dress

The new episode – ‘Terrifying Tower of London’ – was filmed on-location at the UNESCO World Heritage Site. It follows Rattus Rattus as the beloved rodent teams up with AJ Clark, one of the Tower’s Beefeaters, officially known as Yeoman Warders. The two navigate every twist and turn of the Tower’s long history, from its being built by William the Conqueror all the way to the present day.

Ghosts’ announcement of a final series has viewers in mourning

The cast of Ghosts stood outside Button House

Alison (Charlotte Richie) and Mike Cooper (Kiell Smith-Bynoe) moved into Button House after inheriting it from a distant relative. However, their talks of converting the mansion into a hotel upset its permanent residents, a set of ghosts who died in the house at various points in history.

A shock accident left Alison, who crucially is a living person, able to see her phantom friends; eight ghosts all vying for her attention, along with a whole cluster of plague victims living in her basement.
