Shot in the Dark

I met up with the cast of Shot in the Dark for a fun little photoshoot at Sidney Sussex College.

Blimey! It’s 1958 and the Cold War is in full swing, Britain’s ladies are neatly tucked away in the kitchen, and Her Majesty’s finest assassins have gathered to celebrate topping off their prime target. There’s just a small spot of bother: she’s not actually dead.

“I may not have killed her,” says Kenneth, “but I got jolly close.” Et voila! You are served a scrumptious platter of messed-up murders, accompanied by oodles of intrigue and lashings of lols.
All based on genuinely fictional events; it’s going to be absolutely capital.

Do you hope that if you send away most beautiful woman in Russia we will all climb in closets with you?’

‘Commander, you do not seem self today. Look at you, with little glum face. You usually love sentencing relatives to death.’
