The Casebook Of Inspector Steine, Episode 1 - The Entertainer

Crime is at a low ebb, but Mrs Groynes, the cockney charlady who is actually a criminal mastermind, is determined to reverse the trend. A matinee performance at the Hippodrome gives her an idea.

Further details

Crime has stopped in Brighton. Twitten is writing a landmark study of kinship systems in the Fens, while Steine plays golf and Brunswick auditions for the Hippodrome. Mrs Groynes is frantic to regain control of Brighton. But how can she make sure no one will ever believe Twitten if he fingers her as a criminal mastermind?

With Kim Wall as Ventriloquist Vince and David Holt as an elderly stage-door man with an incredibly disgusting cough.
