Review

We haven’t seen much recently of Jack Chapman, the old romantic who swept pious vicarage housekeeper Mrs Maguire (as was) into a heart-warming marriage at the end of series three. In fact, we don’t really know much about Jack – and perhaps, it emerges tonight, neither does Mrs C herself. A shadowy figure emerges from Jack’s past, and refuses to retreat without causing a stir. Is Mrs C prepared to hear the truth about her husband?

As for vicar Will and his young reporter friend Ellie, they venture out on their first date – a trip to the cinema. But, just their luck, the mood doesn’t last long: a scream from the projection booth signals the start of Geordie’s next murder case…

Summary

Will and Ellie go on their first date with a trip to the flicks. However, a scream from the projection booth cuts the romance short as they discover a brutal murder has taken place within the cinema. Geordie arrives to investigate and soon they've found movie star connections, oddball employees and a link to the Asian subcontinent, as a shadowy figure emerges from Jack Chapman's past and refuses to retreat without causing a stir. Cathy's mother takes the children out for the day, which ends up worrying Cathy far more than it should. Robson Green, Tom Brittney, Lauren Carse and Kacey Ainsworth star.
