There are certainly plenty of movie and TV ghosts we don’t want haunting us. The murderous ones boxed up in the glass house of THIR13EN Ghosts? Absolutely not. Slimer from Ghostbusters? He’s a friggin liability. Sleepy Hollow’s Headless Horseman? No, we need our heads, we’re using them for important stuff like overthinking and retaining the lyrics to “Baby Shark” for whatever reason. And god forbid Pipes ever gets past the door.

There are, however, notable pop culture ghosts that wouldn’t make our lives considerably worse. Perhaps they’re genuinely helpful, and wouldn’t be too much of a bother to have hanging around. Or, and we don’t mean to lower the tone, maybe they’re just really, really hot. 

The Den of Geek team have decided who they’d prefer to haunt them below. Have a read, then sound off in the comments! We want to hear who you think would be the very best pop culture haunter to waft around the joint while you’re still enjoying the land of the living.

Ghost Capaldi from Doctor Who Series 9

The “base under siege” story is a classic Doctor Who setup, but few examples of this format are as spooky in the NuWho era as the series nine two-parter “Under the Lake/Before the Flood.” Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor and Jenna Coleman’s Clara Oswald stumble upon an underwater mining facility where the crew have accidentally unleashed a horde of killer, axe-wielding ghosts on the station. The story is part Alien, part Back to the Future, and a hell of a lot of fun, especially when you get to the first episode’s big cliffhanger: after traveling back in time to get to the bottom of what’s causing the ghost attack, Capaldi returns…as a ghost himself!
