Four people (two men and two women) meet in a room with an eerie atmosphere, which is part of a derelict house. They were previously unknown to each other, and are there as a result of a meeting arranged by the Hislop Dating Agency. Their uneasiness in being there is suddenly compounded into stark terror! They try to get out of the house, but find that they are locked in. They are confronted by the truth – The Hislop dating Agency is for DEAD PEOPLE ONLY. Any hopeful doubts they had over being ghosts are eventually toppled when they get involved with a BBC producer and his assistant, who are searching for a ghost-like property for an episode of the Doctor Who series.
