"The Living and the Dead" (TV show) is a ghost hunter drama series on BBC America.

Somerset, England, 1888. A land and a community on the edge of monumental change, on the great hinge between ancient traditional ways and an industrial, scientific future. A land of ghosts and myths, poltergeists and demons — if there was ever a time for those ghosts to rise out of the ground, this would be that time. At the heart of this small community is Nathan Appleby, a reluctant gentleman farmer who is obsessed with proving the existence of the afterlife.

In this drama, this complex and compelling man will investigate hauntings, paranormal happenings, and ghostly visitations, encouraged by the Society for Psychical Research. But as these terrifying investigations become ever more frequent and ever more scary, Nathan starts to see and hear disturbing things that he simply cannot have imagined. Will Nathan's interest in the occult begin to threaten his family, his livelihood and even his sanity?

The series stars Colin Morgan ("Humans," "The Fall," "Merlin") as lead Nathan Appleby and Charlotte Spencer ("Glue," "Stonemouth," "Line of Duty"), as Charlotte Appleby, Nathan's wife.

"The Living and the Dead" is co-produced by BBC Wales Drama Production and BBC America in association with Monastic Productions for BBC One. The executive producers are Ashley Pharoah and Matthew Graham for Monastic Productions, and Faith Penhale, Head of BBC Wales Drama Production, and Katie McAleese for BBC Wales Drama Production.
