Famous crime writer Jack Cameron and his wife Susie drown in a boating accident

But they are refused entry into heaven because Jack is an atheist

And so they return to haunt the country cottage where they once lived

They soon learn life as a ghost can be very dull

Their only pleasure comes from spooking the estate agent and frightening away any would-be tenants

But things change when Susie persuades Jack to allow a young couple to move in - Simon, an aspiring crime writer, and Flic, his pregnant wife

Inevitably, Susie and Jack become drawn into their lives ...

Simon struggles with writer's block and Marcia - Flic's monstrous mother - is doing her best to separate the couple

With little expectation of success, Susie calls up her Guardian Angel

And she does arrive

But she's far from the the angelic figure one would expect

She tells Jack he can help Simon write his book - but by a very unorthodox method which causes much confusion

Christmas arrives

And so does a snowstorm

And so does the baby

Then - in a moment of crisis - Jack finds himself doing something that no card-carrying atheist would ever admit to

But will it help . . . ?
