4 Extra Debut. The actor-cum-sleuth is drawn into the murky world of Hugo's marriage - and his wife's 'am-dram' group. Stars Bill Nighy. From December 2012.
Actor-cum-sleuth Charles Paris is once again out of work - an event made worse by his maddening mother Joan's arrival to recuperate from an operation.
So when he bumps into old friend, Hugo, who offers him some voiceover work, Charles is doubly happy; some money and a chance to escape the house.
But a simple voice job leads Charles into Hugo's drink-fuelled depressing marriage. His young wife spends most of her time at an am-dram group with some very strange members and Hugo seems ready to crack....
