Another chance to hear the latest Charles paris series. Bill Nighy stars as the actor cum amateur sleuth with a love of the bottle and the female form. In this series he has uncharacteristically landed a part in a film 'The Wreathing' where he's playing a middle management vampire opposite swimwear model turned actress Jodie Ricks played by Martine McCutcheon. Before long Jodie has confided to Charles that she's the victim of a blackmail scam and things take an even nastier turn when it appears that someone wants Jodie dead.
Never one to resist a maiden in distress Charles sets about trying to solve the mystery.

In this week's episode Charles goes fishing and finds a dead body.
