Storyline

A series of killings of bank managers has London in a turmoil, all the way up to Parliament. And the killer regularly calls about his handiwork, but only to a street-wise, and usually rather tipsy, radio reporter, about to be sacked for his habitual irreverence toward his station and the BBC. And while everything seems to point to a lead singer of a rock group famous for the "In The Red" music which has been connected to the killings, in typical British mystery fashion, there are also other sub-plots to be considered. Written by Bob Stebbins

Magnificent!
23 April 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Firstly, let me say, If you are not familiar with Britain or the way it is run, don't bother. This superb comedy of in-jokes would be mostly not understandable.

For the Brits out there or people who have lived and worked in the UK, this is a brilliant satire on the way the country is run with murders stacking up by the score. Is the murderer the musician, wiped out with debt and getting innumerate letters from his bank? Is it from within that bastion of bastions, the BBC? or could it be from the world of banking or even from the Palace of Westminister itself?

It is criminal that this has only been shown once and never released on video or DVD. A must!
