Bill Nighy returns as actor-cum-amateur-sleuth Charles Paris in Jeremy Front's new dramatisation of Simon Brett's novel.

Charles, bit part actor and amateur sleuth, finally gets the chance to be in a West End musical, but Charles' suspicions are roused when the number of accidents looks like more than bad luck...

At home, Charles' 'semi-detached' wife Frances is approaching a big birthday and she's drawn up a bucket list of things to do before it's too late.
