1 Who Do You Think You Are?
Alison and Mike, a cash-strapped young couple struggling to buy their first home, think their prayers are answered when a distant relative bequeaths them a sprawling country estate. The catch? The old house is haunted by the ghosts of its former inhabitants. The restless spirits, horrified that the new owners plan to turn the peaceful pile into a bustling hotel, make plans to oust the troublesome newcomers. But their bungled efforts have unintended consequences.
2 Gorilla War
Alison finds herself hounded by the ghosts, who now realise she can both see and hear them, and tries to ignore their existence - a tactic which only exacerbates the problem when the Captain puts the ghosts onto a war footing. Meanwhile, Mike's attempts to turn the house into a home leads to a DIY disaster, saddling Lady Button with an ill-suited roommate, and Julian learns about his questionable legacy when the spooks discover the internet.
3 Happy Death Day
It's Pat's 'death day' and he prepares himself for his family's annual pilgrimage to the site of his demise. But, realising that Alison is a conduit between the dead and the living, he begs her to pass on a message from the other side - a plan complicated when Pat realises a shocking truth about his marriage. Meanwhile, Mike struggles to come to terms with his bathroom-based paranoia, and Kitty tries to find out where babies come from.
4 Free Pass
Fortune smiles on Mike and Alison when a TV company comes calling, looking for an old house in which to film a period drama. But to get the money in the bank, Alison must ensure the shoot goes without a hitch despite the horde of curious ghosts, the house's crumbling floorboards and her crippling crush on the show's lead actor. Meanwhile, Thomas and Lady Button learn the meaning of a free pass, and Julian tries his luck at betting on horse racing.
5 Moonah Ston
Learning that their posh neighbours the Beg-Chetwyndes have an ancient claim over their land, Mike and Alison throw an upmarket dinner party to help resolve a thorny issue. But with the ghosts her only guide to high-class decorum, the evening starts badly and only gets worse - thanks to Mary's woeful catering, Mike's clueless deal-making and Robin's raucous celebration of the lunar eclipse. Elsewhere, the spooks become obsessed with a TV sitcom.
6 Getting Out
Now juggling day jobs with their endless renovations, Mike and Alison are both penniless and exhausted when a luxury hotel chain makes them an offer they can’t refuse. But the spectre of Alison’s departure drives a wedge between the Ghosts, and the hardline Captain finds himself ostracised while Pat is voted in as reluctant leader. While the clueless spirits brainstorm money-making schemes, the Captain takes matters into his own hands. Meanwhile, fortune smiles on Headless Humphrey in his ceaseless search for his errant body.

About this show

Crumbling country mansion Button House is home to restless spirits who've died there over the centuries.

As the ghosts attempt to oust the newcomers, and Alison and Mike discover the true scale of the project they've taken on, fate conspires to trap both sides in an impossible houseshare.

This is, quite possibly, the best show on television in the last 10 years. It is touching, and funny, and heartwarming and even heartbreaking. Raises some fascinating questions about life and death and what might happen if we couldn't move on. A very, very wonderful show. 5 stars all the way.

It's not a review but a question - why the heck I cannot buy this series on Google Play? The icons for buying are not active and it's practically impossible to get through the so-called Help process.
