SPOOKY! Derek Acorah's Ghost Towns, Living TV, 9.00pm

It was inevitable that sooner or later Derek Acorah would take some time off from pretending to be possessed and scaring the living shit out of Yvette Fielding on Most Haunted and sure enough, here he is with his own spinoff, although it seems very much a variation on a theme.

This time, Derek is on the road with Danniella Westbrook (and we're not making any nose jokes, because we're above that. Honestly) and the apparently-not-ugly Angus Purden to take his "psychic gift" out to interact with the people of Britain and share their experiences. It sounds to us a bit more like a ten-minute slot on This Morning rather than an hour-long TV show in its own right, but maybe there are still laws against talking to the dead on live TV before the watershed.

By far the most exciting sounding part of the show is Derek's Doorstep Divination, where he will use his psychic instincts to direct the team towards a particular location and surprise some allegedly unwitting residents on their doorstep. Whether he will be asking them to demonstrate that Daz washes whiter is still to be confirmed at this stage.

It sounds as hokey as anything you like, but there is a lot of fun to be had from watching Derek Acorah on TV; the phrase "larger than life" may well have been invented for him. It should all slot in nicely around Living TV's paranormal programming, as long as you don't take it too seriously. As if you would.

About Us

According to Marxist theory, cultural forms such as opera, classical music and the literary works of Shakespeare all fall under the heading of high culture. Low culture refers to a wide variety of cultural themes that are characterised by their consumption by the masses. We might not be Marxists, but we do know we loved Footballers Wives. If you do too, you'll know what this is all about.
