Ghosts (BBC) Season 4 Episode Guide: A Breakdown of the Season’s Most Memorable Moments

Ghosts (BBC) Season 4: From Fanny’s Fanny Pack to Kitty’s Big Break – The Moments We’re Still Screaming About!

Ah, Ghosts. The beloved BBC sitcom that somehow manages to make us laugh at the antics of a plague victim and a disgraced Tory MP. Season 4 didn’t disappoint, delivering another dose of quirky charm and witty humor. From Fanny’s unexpected accessory to a surprising new career for Kitty, we’re breaking down the most memorable moments that had us howling with laughter (and maybe shedding a tear or two).

1. Episode 1: The New Arrival

  • The Fanny Pack Fiasco: Remember when Fanny Button became the unlikely owner of a fanny pack? Her disdain for the “vulgar pouch” was only surpassed by her bewilderment at its usefulness. This hilarious juxtaposition set the stage for a season of unexpected twists.
  • The Captain’s Date Night: The Captain, ever the awkward suitor, finally decided to woo his beloved Gwendoline with a romantic dinner. The results were predictably disastrous, yet heartwarming in their own way. Let’s just say, some ghosts are better off admiring from afar.

2. Episode 2: The Ghost Writer

  • Alison’s Unexpected Muse: Alison’s writer’s block found a surprising solution in the form of… the plague ghosts! Their gruesome tales, hilariously recounted, provided the inspiration she needed for her spooky new novel.
  • Mary’s Musical Moment: Who knew Mary had a hidden talent? Her impromptu rendition of “Amazing Grace,” delivered with surprising power, had us all reaching for the tissues. Turns out, even a burned-at-the-stake witch can hold a tune!

3. Episode 3: The Button House Bake Off

  • The Great Button House Showdown: A baking competition among the ghosts? What could go wrong? From Pat’s questionable ingredients to the Captain’s disastrous attempt at frosting, the episode was a recipe for side-splitting laughter.
  • Humphrey’s Hidden Past: The seemingly dim-witted Humphrey surprised us with a glimpse into his past as a skilled baker, revealing a depth to the character we hadn’t seen before. It seems everyone has a story to tell, even a headless Tudor nobleman.

4. Episode 4: Kitty’s Big Break

  • From Ghost to TV Star: Kitty’s infectious optimism finally paid off as she landed a role on a daytime television show! Seeing her thrive in the spotlight, surrounded by equally eccentric characters, was a joy to watch.
  • Julian’s Unexpected Wisdom: Even Julian, the resident sleazebag, had his moment of truth, offering surprisingly insightful advice to Kitty about navigating the cutthroat world of showbiz. Sometimes, even a disgraced MP can surprise you.

5. The Season’s Lingering Questions:

  • Will Fanny ever fully embrace the fanny pack?
  • Will the Captain ever win Gwendoline’s heart?
  • Will Alison’s spooky novel become a bestseller?

Season 4 of Ghosts (BBC) left us wanting more, and with good reason! It was a brilliant blend of humor, heart, and the supernatural, reminding us that sometimes the most unexpected stories come from the most unexpected places (and people… and ghosts).
