Lockwood & Co showrunner Joe Cornish has revealed that there is more than meets the eye in the Netflix series, adding there’s Easter Eggs even the most eagle-eyed fans may have missed.

The Adam and Joe Show creator, 54, is behind the TV adaptation of the ghost detective series, based on books of the same name by Jonathan Stroud.

The gripping eight-parter follows the (mis)adventures of a trio of precocious teenagers, Lucy (Ruby Stokes), Lockwood (Cameron Chapman) and George (Ali Hadji-Heshmati) as they track down blood-thirsty ghouls.

The pals, who all have special gifts when it comes to the paranormal, work together in an agency trying to bring The Problem to an end, which was essentially a mass invasion of ghouls in England.

As they tackle evil spirits, including the worst of all, a type three, they have run ins with ghost regulatory board DEPRAC, as well as rival agency The Fittes Agency.

At a previous Q&A Joe said that all the text in the series, from labels to newspapers, had been written by the author Jonathan – and he told Metro.co.uk that’s not the only Easter Egg in Lockwood & Co.

He explained: ‘Portland Row, which is the home of Anthony Lockwood and the HQ of Lockwood and Co, is a giant easter egg.

‘Every artifact is connected to a part of Anthony Lockwood’s past, so if you look closely at the walls, you’ll see objects that connect to events that happen to his parents, things that are explored in further books.

‘And the set design is so beautiful in the series as a whole when you go into any of their three bedrooms, George’s bedroom is full of all sorts of little hints and clues to other areas of his experience.’

Joe continued: ‘Everything from the articles that Lockwood has framed on his walls to the pages of the Fittes manual, all have little clues that lay the groundwork for storylines that happen in future books.’

The Attack the Block director also previously revealed to Metro.co.uk the inspiration behind those terrifying ghouls, explaining he turned to Victorian spirit photography for ideas.

He added: ‘We took inspiration from Victorian spirit photography. We wanted our ghosts to feel like they could be a branch of actual physics.

‘[That’s] because Jonathan Stroud, the author of the books was very, very thoughtful and clever in the way he devised this pariscience; this taxonomy of ghosts.

‘We refer to turn-of-the-century photography, and all ghosts are made of ectoplasm – but they can be different densities, different turbulence, different colours, so they all adhere to a specific set of pretend scientific rules.’

Lockwood & Co is available to stream on Netflix.
