Charles Paris: Star Trap : A BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation CD-Audio

Narrated by Bill Nighy, Full Cast



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