Solly Jackson,womanising lead vocalist with recently reformed band the Venerators, is found dead on stage with a bullet in his head. The other band members and his widow Avita all have an alibi,as does the mysterious female photographer Michelle,who turns out to be Solly's illegitimate daughter. Everybody assumes it is suicide - except Poole,whose suspicions are confirmed when somebody puts a snake in his bedroom at night. Using Michelle's photos he shows that one person's alibi was rigged and that,as far as the killer was concerned,the Venerators would be ensured greater success with a singer whose death guaranteed legendary status.

Did You Know?


The camera used by Michelle Bouchant (Rebecca Scroggs) is a Canon EOS 1000D (known in the US market as the Rebel XS and in Japan as the EOS Kiss F), a 2008-model consumer digital SLR which cost just US$700 with 18-55mm kit lens. At the time of filming, it would have been around three years old. See more »


When the "casket" is opened onstage at the beginning, you can clearly see the blood-run from the wound is running downwards to his jaw, but in the flashback near the end of the story we see that he was shot while laying down, which means the blood should have run toward the back of his head. Also, the wound was slightly back on the side, indicating his head was turned to the left when he was killed, but the flashback shows him facing to the right and looking at his attacker when the shot was fired. AND, his hands were crossed over his chest while laying down, so how did they remain in that position minutes later when the casket was opened in a standing position? See more »
