Lord Carstairs is the most disliked man in the village. His wife despises him; the local vicar is in love with his wife; his two servants have had enough of his blustering and violent ways; he’s even mean to his loveable dog Wilcox.
So when he is found dead on the village green, brilliant Belgian detective Inspector Jape finds himself enmeshed in a fiendishly complex snare of intrigue and revenge.

Radio interview: The Stoppers talk about Derek, Kylie and The Wilburys on BBC Radio Leeds
Here is a lovely interview by Wes Butters from BBC Radio Leeds with The Showstoppers’ charming and ridiculous dames Pippa Evans and Ruth Bratt.
They talk about the show (we are appearing in the West Yorkshire Playhouse this weekend) but also about The Traveling Wilburys, Ruth’s part in Derek and leave us wanting to know the secret of Kylie Minogue…
Click here to get the whole show on iplayer – drag the slider to 1:33:50 (an hour and half into the show) for the bit with Pippa and Ruth.
