Storyline

Receiving a tip from his dentist Jack Shorter, Inspector Peter Pascoe takes a closer look at the Calliope Kinema Club, a film club notorious for showing adult entertainment movies. Shorter is convinced that one particular scene in a movie he recently saw was too realistic to have been staged with fake blood, but when Pascoe starts investigating, he soon comes across the actress in question, Linda Abbott, who obviously didn't suffer from any harm and assures Pascoe that his and Shorter's concerns are unnecessary.

Trivia

This was Yorkshire Television's first adaptation of one of Reginald Hill's "Dalziel and Pascoe" books. Hill reportedly hated it so much that he refused to sanction any of his other books for TV adaptation and the BBC went to great lengths to persuade him otherwise. He said about the "A Pinch of Snuff" adaptation: "Hale and Pace wanted to try their hands at more dramatic roles. I just wish they'd tried it with someone else's books." See more »
