Show Synopsis

Private inspector Frank Hathaway has always worked alone. Only Frank isn’t doing so well. He might have a brilliant instinct when it comes to solving crime, but he’s also out of shape and low on cash. Frank needs a partner. Frank needs ex-hairdresser and people-person Lu. He just doesn’t know it yet.

Quirky crime drama set in Stratford-upon-Avon, home to Shakespeare and more bloody corpses than a matinee of Macbeth.

About the show

Frank and Lu eventually join forces and form a highly unlikely and hugely entertaining detecting duo. They quickly discover all is not as peaceful as it seems in this pretty theatre town. Vengeful lovers stalk the streets, the mayor is murdered and a magician’s trick fatally misfires.

Frank and Lu must learn to trust each other, especially since their actor-receptionist is far too busy learning his lines. Welcome to the birthplace of the Bard – where fact is stranger than fiction and low life criminals get caught up in deliciously high drama.
