Bill Nighy returns as Charles Paris. Charles finally has the chance to be in a West End musical, but it seems to be jinxed in Jeremy Front's dramatisation of Simon Brett's novel.

Bill Nighy returns as actor-cum-amateur-sleuth Charles Paris in Jeremy Front's new dramatisation of Simon Brett's novel.
