The Grinning Man

The Grinning Man



Alan Davies stars in a feature-length episode of the offbeat crime drama. Master of illusion Jonathan is called upon to solve several disappearances inside the gloomy attic of a vast Gothic house, but is completely baffled by the mystery, which for 70 years has been attributed to the ghost of a madman said to prey upon human flesh. When two women shelter from a thunderstorm there one night, the ominous presence claims another victim, leaving her friend - Joey Ross - determined to get to the truth of what happened. Jonathan finds himself working alongside Joey, and it seems his formidable powers of deduction are in danger of being eclipsed by her raw intuition. With Sheridan Smith as Joey.
