After 150 years, the deceased sisters Hazel, Rebbecca and Sophie return to their 19th century home, which has been turned into a boarding school, where they are pupils. But the times have changed in former colony Australia, where Vitcorian fashion and society gave way to modern ways. The sisters are ghosts (although in normal bodies) which they hide for staff and schoolmates, although Jonathan, the smart roommate of hunk David, finds out and is sworn to secrecy to satisfy the ghost council, which supervises the new ghosts.

User Reviews


A breath of fresh air. There are so many things a show can be about. Vampires. Werewolves. Witches. Secret agents. But ghosts? That's new.

The acting's pretty good compared to all the other ABC children's series. The script's okay. Not boring. Keeps me watching.

I have to admit, at first what kept me watching was Chris Milligan playing David. I saw him on Neighbours and I thought he was good...and cute.

Dead Gorgeous is an Australian-UK production, so that is maybe why it is doing better than most Australian and UK series on ABC.

Overall, it's refreshing and I'll definitely be on the lookout for season 2.
