Description

Bill Nighy returns as the loveably louche Charles Paris in Jeremy Front’s BBC radio dramatisation of Simon Brett’s novel.

When Charles Paris’ agent rings with the news that he has a part for him in a new musical, Charles is delighted - and somewhat amazed, as he can neither sing nor dance.

But Maurice has an ulterior motive: as one of the show’s backers, he wants Charles to play detective and investigate a series of accidents that have dogged the production. The pianist has been shot in the hand, and another cast member fell downstairs - or was he pushed? Anxious about their investment and their star, Chris Watt, the ‘angels’ are keen to ensure that nothing else goes wrong.

Joining the company, Charles discovers that Chris, although amazingly talented, is a prima donna who has made enemies of almost everyone. When the accidents resume, it begins to look as if anyone who disagrees with him is being targeted. But would the star really sabotage his own show? Charles must find out - before things turn murderous.... 

This thrilling adaptation by Jeremy Front stars Bill Nighy (Love Actually, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel) as Charles Paris, with Suzanne Burden as Frances.

Not nearly as good as earlier Charles Paris

I love Charles Paris, but most recent Radio Plays have been pretty poor, uninteresting plots and not well put together.

The slapstick & satire hurts this series.

I really enjoy the Charles Paris books and on the whole I enjoy the radio dramatizations but they are hurt by the slapstick and entertainment industry satire element that dominate the storylines. They'd be far better if they told the story straight instead making Charles a clumsy buffoon.

Listen to all Charles Paris

Bill Nighy returns to the part he was born to play, that of third tier actor Charles Paris who this time is in the most disaster ridden stage show in the history of the west end.
