Tune in to the trailer for the next of our Big Finish Originals today. Shilling & Sixpence Investigate finds Desmund Shilling (David Warner) and Lavinia Sixpence (Celia Imrie) attempting to solve a murder…
Tune in to Shilling & Sixpence Investigate below.
February 1939. Desmund Shilling (David Warner) arrives in Morlington Hill, deep in the heart of Cornwall, having been given the post of Head of English at Morlington School for Girls by the hearty headmistress Lavinia Sixpence (Celia Imrie).
Not far away, at Boothby Hall, Inspector Cribbage (Nigel Fairs) and Sergeant Salt (Max Day) are investigating the horrific murder of Lord Pluck (Samuel Clemens) – who is to blame? His grieving widow, Lady Penelope (Abi Harris)? His impetuous son, Viscount Robert (Matthew Waterhouse)? The no-nonsense cook (Rebecca Crinnion) or the handsome young school caretaker Joseph (Radley Mason)?
Miss Sixpence and Mr Shilling mount their own investigation, and very soon, horrible truths come to light…
Shilling & Sixpence Investigate contains four Cornish cases to solve in eight episodes, each written by Nigel Fairs.
1. The Missing Year and 2. Dark Shadows
3. In the Silent Dead of Night and 4. A Very Messy Business
5. An Appointment with God and 6. The Dying Room
7. The Face of an Angel and 8. The Black Widow
“I would sum up Shilling & Sixpence Investigate as Agatha Christie meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer with a hint of Wilde,” says director Samuel Clemens in Vortex magazine. “A sprawling murder mystery epic. Be sure to keep your ears pricked up for all the juicy details that are woven through it.” Read more in August’s free Vortex Magazine.
The eight-episode series will be available on download (only) from www.bigfinish.com in September 2018 at a pre-order price of £17.
