Publisher's Summary

Charles Paris returns in this BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of Simon Brett’s humorous theatrical mystery, starring Bill Nighy. 
A job in pantomime seems the perfect way to spend the Christmas season for Charles, but the cast of Cinderella are a motley crew from reality TV and Charles finds himself having to explain the traditions of panto to their baffled American star whose career is on a downward trajectory. 
When the star is shot dead, and Charles finds the body, he finds himself under suspicion. As the slapstick makes way for a murder investigation, he decides to clear his name by doing some sleuthing of his own. With a host of suspects and the body count rising, the line 'they're behind you' soon begins to take on a very sinister meaning indeed.... 
Bill Nighy (Love Actually, Skylight, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel) stars as Charles Paris, with Suzanne Burden as his wife Frances, in this funny and fast-paced dramatisation by Jeremy Front. 
Written by Jeremy Front, based on the novel by Simon Brett.

Jeremy Front, smashing

the only negative about this performance is waiting the 6 to 12 months for another. favorite lines: Charles " I can see your centerpiece" Frances: "if that line isn't in the panto, I'm not going" hilarious!

Still crackling!

Done with the usual wit and verve of all players (although attempted American accents were kinda ... odd).

Brilliant

Loved it straight from the start thanks to the great Bill Nighy and cast. Would like it to have been longer but thoroughly enjoyed. Would highly recommend.

Of course it was wonderful

Mr Nighy and the usual suspects. How could it be less than wonderful. Plus the song at the end. Christmas day you can listen to this as well as watch Wonderful World
