Author: Jeremy Front, Simon Brett Narrator: , Bill Nighy, Suzanne Burden Release Date: September 2014

A BBC Radio 4 full-cast adaptation of Simon Brett's comic murder mystery, starring Bill Nighy as the irrepressible Charles Paris. Charles Paris (unsuccessful actor, bad husband, dipsomaniac) is currently appearing as a fork lift operator in a corporate video. It's not prime-time television or a major film, but it seems like easy money - until the fork lift is used to commit a murder. When Charles himself comes under suspicion, he decides to find out for himself who the murderer is. Meanwhile, as ever with Charles, life on the domestic front is not plain sailing. After inflicting damage upon his ex-wife's house, he finds himself offering her a berth on the houseboat he's currently sitting for a friend. However, life on the water proves as tricky as life at work. Suzanne Burden, Tim McInnery and Jon Glover are also among the cast in this dramatisation by Jeremy Front.

Author: Agatha Christie Narrator: , Arthur Hughes, Mark Umbers, Michael Bertenshaw, Phoebe Waller-Bridge Release Date: June 2014

A full-cast BBC Radio 4 adaptation of Agatha Christie's novel, known to be a favourite among her own works. When Doctor Calgary visits the Argyle family, he believes he brings good news. He is there to clear the name of Jacko, who was convicted of the murder of his own mother, Rachel. But the doctor's news is not greeted with the enthusiasm he expects, and the family seem intent on resisting both his help and the investigations of Inspector Huish. When a further murder is committed, it becomes apparent that a killer is among the gathered party. With almost everyone having a motive and the means for murder, they must all be on their guard. Eschewing the traditional detective format, Ordeal by Innocence examines how the innocent suffer more than the guilty when a crime goes unsolved. Along with Crooked House, it was Agatha Christie's favourite of her own works. Cast: Calgary...Mark Umbers Gwenda...Jacqueline Defferary Kirsten...Wanda Opalinska Hester...Phoebe Waller-Bridge Jacko...Arthur Hughes Leo...Sean Murray Mickey...Joel MacCormack Tina...Carys Eleri Philip...John Norton Mary...Priyanga Burford Marshall...David Seddon Huish...Michael Burtenshaw Doctor...Harry Jardine Hotel Receptionist...Georgie Fuller Adapted by Joy Wilkinson Directed by Mary Peate
