Spirit Level by Pam Valentine
Directed by Paula Smith
When famous crime writer Jack Cameron and his wife Susie drown in a boating accident, they are refused entry into heaven so they return to haunt the country cottage where they lived. Life is dull. Their only pleasure comes from spooking the estate agent. Things change however when they allow Simon, an aspiring crime writer, and Flic, his pregnant wife, to move in, but Simon has writer’s block and Marcia, Flic’s monstrous mother, is doing her best to separate them. So Susie calls up her Guardian Angel who tells Jack he can help Simon write his book but by an unorthodox method which causes utter confusion. Christmas arrives, and so does a moment of crisis and Jack finds himself doing something that no card-carrying atheist would ever admit to. But will it help?
