Description

Charles Paris returns in this BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of Simon Brett’s humorous theatrical mystery, starring Bill Nighy. 

A job in pantomime seems the perfect way to spend the Christmas season for Charles, but the cast of Cinderella are a motley crew from reality TV and Charles finds himself having to explain the traditions of panto to their baffled American star whose career is on a downward trajectory. 

When the star is shot dead, and Charles finds the body, he finds himself under suspicion. As the slapstick makes way for a murder investigation, he decides to clear his name by doing some sleuthing of his own. With a host of suspects and the body count rising, the line 'they're behind you' soon begins to take on a very sinister meaning indeed.... 

Bill Nighy (Love Actually, Skylight, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel) stars as Charles Paris, with Suzanne Burden as his wife Frances, in this funny and fast-paced dramatisation by Jeremy Front. 

Written by Jeremy Front, based on the novel by Simon Brett.

Jeremy Front, smashing

the only negative about this performance is waiting the 6 to 12 months for another. favorite lines: Charles " I can see your centerpiece" Frances: "if that line isn't in the panto, I'm not going" hilarious!

Still crackling!

Done with the usual wit and verve of all players (although attempted American accents were kinda ... odd).

Charles Paris Rules

Bill Nighy and Suzanne Burden are fabulous as always as Charles and Frances. Another smashing time with the whole crew. The different rings on Charles’ phone alone are worth the credit.

Bill Nighy is a treat

The cast and performances (esp. Bill Nighy) are the reasons to listen to these charming but not terribly well plotted mysteries.

A delight.

I love the Charles Paris stories. Bill Nighy is perfect in the role. I laughed out loud (very loud) on many occasions. The stories are very English, as are the characters , perhaps that should read eccentric, but that just adds to their charm. Can't wait for more of them.
