Charles Paris: Murder in the Title
- A BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation
- By: Simon Brett, Jeremy Front
- Narrated by: Bill Nighy, Suzanne Burden, full cast
- Length: 1 hr and 50 mins
- Original Recording
Charles Paris is his own worst enemy, a louche lush who can resist anything except temptation - especially in the form of women and alcohol. He’s been out of work so long now he feels he may never get a job and he’s driving Frances, his semi-ex-wife, mad. So when he’s offered a small role in a play, she nearly pushes him out of the door. But it seems that ‘The Message is Murder’ is such a terrible production that someone wants to kill off the cast.
Lightweight but great fun

Intertaining anf funny!
Its a short detective story with lots of humor! A good light story before bedtime. Bill Nighy is just perfect being this ....most of the time unemployed actor who drinks too much!
