It’s more than 40 years since their classic crime capers in The Lady Vanishes, Night Train to Munich and It’s Not Cricket. The gentleman-sleuth duo may be retired but they still leap at the chance to investigate a new murder mystery.

Caldicott (Michael Aldridge) lives in splendid luxury at Viceroy Court, Marylebone, while Charters (Robin Bailey) resides in leafy Reigate – and as ever they meet at their posh Pall Mall club. When the body of an old friend’s daughter is found in Caldicott’s flat, the pair forgo their regular Friday lunch to solve the crime.

The mystery deepens, though, when Charters receives a phone call from the supposedly dead girl! Over the six entertaining episodes the plot thickens as the case is linked to a cargo of gold on a sunken German

WWII U-Boat. And from there the excitement builds to a thrilling climax at Lords Cricket Ground – both on and off the pitch! Starring Michael Aldridge (Last of the Summer Wine) and Robin Bailey (I Didn’t Know You Cared (1975), Blind Terror (1971)) and featuring Caroline Blakiston (Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi / Poldark (2015)) and Tessa Peake-Jones (Only Fools and Horses)
