Dover and the Unkindest Cut of All

Comedy thriller by Joyce Porter, set in the 1970s, dramatised by Paul Mendelson.

Chief Inspector Dover's annual seaside break becomes a busman's holiday with the death of a local policeman. Was it suicide and was it linked to the recent murder of a well-known gangster? It's another strange case for Scotland Yard's laziest detective.
