The Literary Festival

Damien comes to the rescue when an author is knocked unconscious at a literary festival. Stars Miles Jupp. From February 2013.

Damien and Anthony arrive at a literary festival to promote Damien's book about the culinary habits of the Great Poets. Despite the charming hotel and the peaceful surroundings, the cookery writer can barely disguise his chagrin at his talk being in a tent smaller to other writers he considers lesser than him.

But he soon has the opportunity to get the audience he feels he deserves when a fellow author is knocked unconscious and Damien is asked to fill in. But can he rise to the occasion?

Written by Miles Jupp.
