He never did finish the story....

Something sinister lurks beneath the polished veneer.

While she is there, tragedy strikes as Carrie's step-son, Christian Gulbrandsen, is shot dead. There are at least seven suspects and two more murders follow. But the man with the obvious motive has a cast-iron alibi, as he could hardly be in two places at once - or could he? June Whitfield once again stars as the indomitable amateur detective.

    In a 56-year career spanning from Take It from Here to Absolutely Fabulous, June Whitfield's presence in a show has always been a hallmark of quality. From Shakespeare to Carry On films, from Penge rep to the Palladium, there is hardly a theatre or studio where she hasn't appeared, and in the process acquired a wonderfully funny backstage tale to tell. June Whitfield writes perceptively about the great comics she has known in her long professional life.

    Take It from Here was one of the most influential radio shows of all time, sweeping in a new era of comedy and introducing an enduring pair of writers: bright young things Frank Muir and Denis Norden. Their literate scripts, and the madcap adventures of Dick Bentley, "Professor" Jimmy Edwards, and June Whitfield, ensured 11 years of classic capers.

    Written as the letters of the five members of Squire Bramble's household sent as they journey around Britain, The Expedition of Humphrey Clinker is a grouchy, very funny examination of how one story varies depending on who's doing the telling. The tale is centered around the arrival of Mr. Clinker into the otherwise uneventful household, who never speaks and does not even enter the novel until a third of the way through.
