Product Description

Presented by Tom Baker Ghost Detectives follows a squad of intrepid investigators, each with a nose for the unnatural, who set up camp at the country's most haunted locations.

Using a combination of clairvoyants, dowsers and other paranormal techniques alongside more traditional historical research, they try to separate the facts from fictions about the alleged hauntings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Older IS better. 20 Nov 2009
Format:DVD
What's wrong with this being nearly a decade old? Sure, it's old-fashioned in its visual style compared to now (thank goodness!), but that's a great plus because it allows for the time and patience needed. People shouldn't expect superficial music video garbage like the US "Ghost Hunters" here, this is more in tone with the excellent UK "Ghost Hunters" from the mid-90s, "Castle Ghosts" (with Robert Hardy) or the later underrated "Haunted Homes" (where skeptic Chris French also appears), and therefore a no-nonsense experience. This is actually one of the better ghost series out there, too bad it didn't go on but often good quality is not appreciated. Yes, dear old Tom sends it up a bit but this prevents it from getting too dry, and believe you me ghost sleuthing can be quite draining. In short, if you favour serious investigations by seasoned researchers over teenagers with shakycams, it doesn't get much better than the brilliant and much-missed "Ghost Detectives".

5.0 out of 5 stars The original 28 Aug 2011
By Day2k
Format:DVD
So ok.. its dated,the equipment is old, there is no flashy CG and the camera work and direction isn't particularly arty, but we have to remember this is the original televised ghost hunting show. This set the standard and served as inspiration to a lot of us. Although it comes across as fairly naive, as it was released before there was proper research done into things like "orbs", It has an honesty and realism that is missing from a lot of contemporary shows. Don't buy this if you are looking for hi-tech state of the art ghost hunting, buy this to see where it all started.

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Awful. 14 Nov 2009
Format:DVD
Putting it simply, Ghost Detectives is absolutely awful. Upon receipt of this DVD set in the mail, my first disappointment was to discover that the series was produced in 2001 [despite the DVD release being promoted as 2009]. I then thought "Oh no, this series obviously wasn't good enough for a second season to be commissioned". And after one episode you know why. Seriously, it is totally pathetic. Nothing happens, the production is c-grade at best, and as for Tom Baker's narration - it is embarrassing. Baker's melodramatic monologue is unintentionally hilarious [unlike his deliberately hilarious Little Britain narration], and watching his eyeballs move from left to right as he reads from the teleprompt is so amateurish it's amazing. There's really nothing more to say, other than "do not waste your money on this rubbish". Spend it on Ghost Hunters(US), Ghost Adventures (US), or series 4-9 of Most Haunted (UK). That is, unless you get excited by a digital still photo of an orb (dust) as the Ghost Detectives do. Oh, and guess what the tagline for Ghost Detectives is? "Who you gonna call"! Be warned.

3.0 out of 5 stars Orbs and dowsers 17 Aug 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
These kinds of investigative ghost programs are interesting to watch - they all have their own schtick and can be quite entertaining at times. In this series, the investigators place considerable importance on supposed "orbs" captured on film. This was all the rage years ago, but who really considers this legitimate evidence anymore? In one program they are even convinced that that they see "a face" - of course in order to do so the "orb" had to be severely magnified with a computer program to the point of being a technicolor blotch. The unfortunate thing is that these investigations seem to cast a shadow of doubt upon what what seem to be well established and multiple-witness hauntings.
